    Sonia Asked

    Hi there, I am bringing my 10yr old son for the first time to WD... planning to go to MK, Epcot, HS and maybe Animal Kingdom. We have a 5 day hopper pass. Which rides/site should we see for his age level...suggestions please?

    Hi Sonia,

    You are going to have so much fun with your son! With a 5 day Park Hopper pass, I recommend 2 days in the Magic Kingdom and 1 day in each of the other parks. I'm not sure if your son is a thrill ride fan or not, but I will base this on the attractions that my son enjoyed at 10 years old. Here are some highlights in each park. Please remember that some of the attractions have minimum height requirements.

    Magic Kingdom: Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Space Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion, Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, Mickey's PhilharMagic, Tomorrowland Speedway and spend some time exploring Tom Sawyer Island.

    Epcot: Soarin', Test Track, Mission: Space, Spaceship Earth, The Seas with Nemo and Friends, Journey into Imagination and the Maelstrom in Norway.

    Animal Kingdom: Expedition Everest, Kali River Rapids and the Kilimanjaro Safari. Also, some of the shows are fantastic.

    Hollywood Studios: Toy Story Mania (a definite MUST DO), Tower of Terror, Rock 'n Roller Coaster. Shows: Lights, Motors, Action and Indiana Jones.

    Be sure to watch IllumiNations, Wishes and Fantasmic and some of the parades.

    Hope this helps! I'm out of room but please let me know if I can assist you further,
