Mom With Kids After Run

    We are going to WDW & will have both little girls and boys. The girls want to do the BBB dress up. I heard that there was a "pirate dress up" thing or something like that for little boys. Is this true? Or are there any special boys activities

    Last week while on vacation in WDW, my son did the Pirate Adventure cruise from the Grand Floridian. This was his second time on this voyage and he said it was still lots of fun.

    The cruise is for children 4-10 years old. The price we paid was $30 plus tax (subject to change) for the 2 hour event that includes lunch as well as take home pirate booty, including a bandana with mouse ears!

    You can get more information by calling 407-WDW-PLAY. I booked this through 407-WDW-DINE while making the rest of my dining reservations.

    Other activities that are fun for boys include the Build Your Own Lightsaber kiosk inside the Once Upon A Toy store at Downtown Disney. We paid $19.95 plus tax for this "choose your destiny" experience which lit our son's face up with a bright young Jedi smile.

    In addition, boys might enjoy a fishing excursion, marina boat rental or mini-golf experience.
     
    At Bippidi Boppidi Boutique, boys can get the "cool dude" hair style package or stop at the nearby Adventure Room inside World of Disney to Build A Treasure Chest (fill a chest with pirate toys including skull rings).

    Nearby is the Lego Imagination Center which is always a delight for our son. He loves to fill a bucket with Legos from the Lego brick wall and purchase it with his own Disney Dollars.

    Consider horseback riding and a meal at the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue.

    Our son enjoyed his meal at Cinderella's Royal Table again this year. He enjoyed the sword souvenir and the princesses asking him if he slayed many dragons on his way to the castle. Even at 8, our son was having fun being called a knight and posing with the beautiful princesses.

    Consider what your son likes and make a special occasion around that interest. Dinosaurs? Take him to breakfast at the Donald's Safari Breakfast in the Animal Kingdom and then head to Dinoland so he can run around the Boneyard and dig up dinosaur bones. Treat him to a dino souvenir too!
