    Hi Moms Panel! My family will be there in July. We usually focus on the children, but my dh will be home from Afghanistan for about two weeks and I want him to enjoy himself as well. What are some things you recommend besides golf and fishing?

    Hi Latoya! What a wonderful trip you have planned to celebrate having your family all together again. I can't think of a better place to do this then Walt Disney World.

    I certainly agree that this trip needs to be about your husband but that doesn't mean that the rest of the family can't enjoy the fun too. Golf and fishing are great ideas for your husband to kick back and relax but there is much more. Take the family to Splitsville in Downtown Disney and have a few hours of fun bowling and eating. This is an amazing new facility and will surely give your group a ton of laughs!  Also in Downtown Disney you might consider taking in a movie with dinner by checking out the AMC Fork and Screen movies. Both of these activities would be fun for everyone.

    Check out some of the tours offered for your husband. I strongly suggest the Animal Kingdom's Wild Africa Trek. You cross rope bridges over the crocodiles and watch the hippos eat and end up dining in your own private building as the animals graze nearby. Your husband can enjoy this while you and the kids take on some of the attractions and then meet up to compare your day in the park.

    The ultimate "guy" experience can be found at the Richard Petty driving experience located next to the Magic Kingdom parking lot. You can book your husband a driving experience or a ride along experience. My husband has done this twice now and can't stop raving about it. I also did it but I am not a driver so was scared out of my wits! What a memory something like this will leave you with and I am sure your husband would be thrilled.

    PIck some dining you know he would love and let him take control of the attractions you will visit. Make sure he gets all his favorites in during your stay!
