    We are planning our first trip to Disney World in Nov. 2014 and would appreciate any suggestions of must things to do. I will be traveling with my two 13 years old twins (one boy and one girl) and will be staying at one of the Disney resort for seven days

    Hi Mary,

    I'm sure you are getting really excited to take off on your magical family vacation. It is just around the corner and it's great that you have stopped by for some suggestions.

    While visiting all of the theme parks is a must-do, in my opinion, let me offer some fun experiences beyond the attractions. First and foremost, I think your kids might like DisneyQuest Indoor Interactive Theme Park in Downtown Disney. The possibilities are endless with five floors of virtual games and fun! There is a separate admission required, but if you have the Magic Your Way tickets with the Water Parks and More add-on, your admission could be included. This is also a great place to spend the day in the middle of your vacation if you want to take a break from the outdoors and theme parks. There are tons of great restaurants and shopping, too, in Downtown Disney.

    Another experience to consider within the theme parks would be Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom. It is an interactive activity with trading cards and some unique technology. My oldest son, who is a tween, has a blast doing this each time we go. It provides a unique perspective for seeing a few sometimes overlooked areas of the park. Keep in mind that your twins could find this a little too juvenile, but I guess you would just need to ask them.

    Looking for Hidden Mickeys provides a different way to keep kids of all ages occupied while waiting in the queues for attractions. You can find the clue books for sale at many of the retail locations in and outside of the parks. You can also find these books at local bookstores before you leave. The author is Steven Barrett.

    Have a great time and enjoy creating wonderful family memories.
