    Hi all, We've just booked a 10 night stay at POFQ in August followed by a 4 night Disney Cruise. My son will turn 13 during our resort stay so I'm looking for something extra special to do that day for him. Any ideas would be appreciated! Th

    Hi Jo,

    My family did a very similar trip to what you have planned last October and had a brilliant time.

    If your son is anything like my 12-year old son, he is going to absolutely love your Disney Cruise. I'm not exaggerating when I say that we hardly saw him once onboard as he wanted to spend all of his time at the Edge youth club where he made so many friends - they were even calling for him at our stateroom.

    Anyway, back to your question. My son has been fortunate enough to experience many special treats at Walt Disney World over the years and here are his top 3 picks:-

    1/ Parasailing at Disney's Contemporary Resort
    This activity will allow him to soar high above Walt Disney World Resort and get a bird's-eye view of the Magic Kingdom park. Best of all, he won't even get wet.
    2/ Motorized Boat Rentals
    At 13-years old, your son is old enough to drive his very own Sea Raycer (mini-powerboat) across select waterways of Walt Disney World Resort.
    3/ The Wild Africa Trek at Disney's Animal Kingdom
    A 3-hour VIP expedition offering close encounters with Hippos, Crocodiles and other African wildlife.

    I do hope that this has given you some ideas Jo and please feel free to ask me another question if I can be of any further help with the planning of your trip.

    Wishing you a magical holiday filled with memories which will last a lifetime!
