    Arianne Asked

    I am planning a trip to Disney World during the week of Thanksgiving this year and plan to stay at Bay Lake Tower. What are some fun activities and dining experiences for our teenage (14 & 17) daughters, as well as, our 10 year old son? Thanks!

    You've chosen a fabulous home away from home, Arianne.  I bet your family is going to have one unforgettable Thanksgiving!

    I have three teenage daughters.  I can tell you that Teppan Edo tops their lists as a favorite place to dine.  They love the hibachi-style service as well as the food.  Whispering Canyon Cafe at Disney's Wilderness Lodge is another favorite of theirs.  They always get a good laugh at the antics in the dining room.  The Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater at Hollywood Studios is another sure bet.  I can't say whether they more enjoy dining in the parked "cars" or sipping up the milkshakes there.  Lastly, the whole family has a really great time at the Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue. 

    When it comes to activities, I would venture to guess that your teens will most enjoy touring the parks and experiencing the attractions.  If you're not opposed to spending a bit extra for a special tour, you might consider the Wild Africa Trek.  Parasailing is another great choice for kids that age.  Good luck with your decisions!
