    Hello. Looking to bring DS 14 to the world in May. Never been that time of year. What can we do and what should we book to do? We have yet to do a tour, are any available for his age? What is a good Tween hotel? He does love characters! thanks

    Hi Joanne ~

    I have two boys and we are always looking for adventure!

    Star Wars Weekends is one of my all-time favorite special events at Walt Disney World and it will be taking place Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Disney's Hollywood Studios during your trip. There are so many special activities including a parade, celebrity talks, celebrity autograph sessions, character meet and greet opportunities, and nighttime entertainment. Returning this year is Jedi Mickey's STAR WARS Dine at Hollywood & Vine and STAR WARS Dine-In Galactic Breakfast! at Sci-Fi Dine-in Theater Restaurant. These are among my all-time favorite character dining experiences. The interaction with the special characters and food options are fabulous!

    Here are some tours and special encounters that your son is old enough to participate in and may really enjoy:
    * Wild Africa Trek
    * Disney's Dolphins in Depth
    * Behind the Seeds
    * Disney's The Magic Behind Our Steam Train Tour
    * Epcot DiveQuest
    * Epcot Aqua Seas Tour

    Your son may also enjoy these special experiences:
    * Richard Petty Driving Experience Ride-Along
    * Fort Wilderness Archery Experience
    * Surf Lessons at Typhoon Lagoon
    * Parasailing at the Contemporary Resort

    My boys love to stay at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, Beach Club, Wilderness Lodge, and Animal Kingdom Lodge.

    Please feel free to visit us again with all of your planning questions. We are hEAR for you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
