    I am planning a trip to DisneyWorld in March. My older children, boys 17 and 14 where there 10 yrs. ago, but we are bring our 9yr. daughter for the first time. Will my sons have things to do while their sister is enjoying the magic for the first time?

    There is plenty for teens to do at WDW. At their age, you might even be able to let them off to explore the parks on their own for a while. With the excellent Disney transportation system and a cell phone, they should be good to go.

    There a number of rides at WDW that are teen favorites. Here are just a few:

    - In the Magic Kingdom: Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, and yes, Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin (your boys could certainly get a competition going about who is better at battling Emperor Zerg)
    - In Epcot: Soarin', Test Track, Mission Space (even many fearless teens are humbled by that one)
    - In the Animal Kingdom: Expedition Everest, Kali River Rapids
    - In Disney's Hollywood Studios: Tower of Terror, Rock 'n' Rollercoaster, and the Auto Stunt Show

    Also, don't count out the appeal of family fun together. Children and adults of all ages enjoy many of the classic Disney attractions such as the Jungle Cruise and the Country Bear Jamboree. You might also all enjoy the silly gags at a dinner show such as the Hoop de Doo Revue.

    You hotel could also offer lots of entertainment for the boys. All the hotels have some form of a game arcade. At many of the hotels there are boats or bikes they could rent. And they could always catch a nap in the sun at the pool.

    I'm sure your whole family will have a great trip.
