    Taking our 2 girls & 1 friend each for first time in June - any suggestions, their ages will be 11 & 16. Different interests! Want them both to have a fantastic experience. Also, we arrive @ 8pm staying @ FWR - any ideas for that night? Thank

    Hi, Erin! With four girls with varied interests, I would head straight to Downtown Disney for that first night!  There is something there for absolutely everyone.  It's open late.  It doesn't require a ticket.  There are great places to grab a late bite to eat, and last, but certainly not least, there is SHOPPING! All the girls I know that are the same ages as your girls can't get enough of shopping.  This seems like a great way to kick off your vacation! Just grab a bus and head downtown. 

    As for the rest of your trip, I think you will find that they will have more in common than you think.  Walt Disney World Resort has a way of making everyone feel like a kid again.  It's one place that my two don't argue and pick at each other.  I suggest letting each girl pick one "must-do" for the day (whether it's a ride, show, or restaurant) and trying to accommodate one request from each.  Then, anything else that you get to experience is icing on the proverbial cake. Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
