    We will be at MK and Epcot in 21 days ! I'm looking for any suggestions for a small, fun surprise for a 15yr. old amazing young man that LOVES Disney.We are already planning on DQ for him.New snack he would like?Something neat to show him? Thank you!

    Hi Heather:

    Exciting that your trip is coming up so soon.  One small surprising treat your Disney fan 15 year old may really enjoy is a ride on Characters in Flight.  Characters in Flight is a ride in a basketed tethered balloon that takes you 400-feet above Downtown Disney for 360-degree spectacular views as far as the eye can see.  It's also not that far away from Disney Quest, so you can combine those two treats. 

    Another idea is a fun dinner event at Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue. Hoop-Dee-Doo is a vaudeville-style dinner show with a country twist. Dinner is served family style and includes favorites like fried chicken, smoked bbq pork ribs, fresh corn bread, strawberry shortcake and the most delicious country-style baked beans I have ever tasted.

    Also consider the Richard Petty Driving Experience, which lets you ride shotgun in a NASCAR-style stock car at speeds up to 120mph at the Walt Disney World Speedway.

    If your 15 year old likes to fish, consider some bass fishing. Call (407)939-BASS or (407)WDW-PLAY for more information.

    Enjoy your vacation.
