    Hi Tron! I notice that you have two young sons. I have three grandsons ranging in age from 8 to 13. What are some fun activities for them outside the theme parks while visiting Walt Disney World? Thanks for your suggestions.

    Hi JoAnn!  Thank you for the question!  It is the first one asked directly to me - I'm so excited!

    Three grandsons?  You didn't mention what their specific interests are, so are you ready?  Because this list is a mile long!

    Are they...

    Sports and recreation enthusiasts?  Then how about horseback riding, fishing, golf, tennis, volleyball, watercraft and bike rentals, miniature golf, specialty cruises, water sports, parasailing, tubing, spa and fitness centers, arcades, and theme pools?  Yes!  It's available!

    Baseball fans?  Head down during spring training to watch the Atlanta Braves play at Disney's Wide World of Sports. 

    Interested in animals?  Check with the Animal Kingdom Lodge about their educational opportunities within the resort.

    Stargazers?  Catch an outdoor movie together!  My favorite is the Chip and Dale Campfire Singalong and Movie at Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground.  You can even make your own s'mores!

    Downtown Disney provides a plethora of activities for a day off from the parks, including a 24 screen AMC movie theater and Disney Quest, a one-of-a-kind, indoor, interactive gaming experience within a five-floor complex.  It's awesome!

    Don't forget the water parks, Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach!  And here is a little known attraction:  surfing lessons at Typhoon Lagoon before the park opens!  Talk about your chance to win the "Coolest Grandma of the Year" award!
     
    Information on all of these activities can be found on the Walt Disney World website.  If I can be of assistance with any of these in particular, please don't hesitate to send me another question!

    I hope you and your grandsons enjoy your Walt Disney World experience together and create magical memories for a lifetime!
