    Hi. DH and I are taking 4 teens to WDW in June (ages 16 & 14). We have a 4 day park hopper pass for the 4 theme parks and will be staying at a Disney resort. If our teens like fast pace and thrills, what parks should they visit and in what order?

    Hi Lynn!  I have 16 & 13 year-old girls so I know all about that teen need for speed!  The good news is that all four parks have at least one attraction that falls into that category.  I asked my girls to rank the parks from lowest to highest and here are their opinions:

    16 year-old:

    4. Epcot
    3. Magic Kingdom
    2. Animal Kingdom
    1. Hollywood Studios

    13 year-old
    4. Epcot
    3. Animal Kingdom
    2. Hollywood Studios
    1. Magic Kingdom

    As you can see, each teen will have his or her own favorites for their own reasons.  In planning your itinerary, I'd recommend visiting each park at least once.  If thrill rides are your only priority, you shouldn't have any trouble hitting all of them in each park during your four day stay.  The attractions you'll want to be sure to experience are:

    Animal Kingdom -  Expedition Everest and Dinosaur
    Epcot - Mission: Space, Test Track and Soarin'
    Hollywood Studios - Tower of Terror and Rock 'n' Roller Coaster (though not technically a thrill ride, I can almost guarantee your teens will LOVE Toy Story Midway Mania)
    Magic Kingdom - Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

    Hope that helps!
