    Hi- We are traveling to Disney with two teenage boys and a 7 year old daughter. Do you have any recommendations that would keep everyone happy? In other words, a destination that everyone can enjoy.

    Hi there, Jennifer!

    What's so wonderful about each of the Parks at the Walt Disney World Resort is that there is seriously so much to do for every age group.

    You'll find thrill rides at each Park, which might be great for the teenagers, while some of the "gentler" rides and attractions will appeal to the little one. And don't underestimate the fun the boys might have, bringing the little one on her first flight with Peter Pan, or teaching her how to "aim for the Zs!" on Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin.

    In truth, the seven-year-old is easy; she'll need to be with her grownups.

    But there's no reason why you can't arrange some of your time around fun stuff for the boys.

    Without knowing any of your children, of course, the challenge is to make recommendations that will be suitable. Instead, I'd suggest that you - and they - should look at some great third-party resources for Disney with teenagers:

    http://traveltips.usatoday.com/disney-theme-parks-recommended-teenagers-3688.html

    And an entire message board written by teens, for teens:

    These should be a great starting point. And once the boys have gotten a sense of what it is they want to do, please feel free to drop us a line, so we can help work out a terrific plan for your magic trip.

    Have a wonderful time!
    See you later, celebrator,
