Oh Boy! What Your Little Prince Will Love at the World – Part 1

I just had a client ask what kinds of things they can do with their son at Walt Disney World, and it got me thinking.  There is so much at the World for parents to do with their daughters, and with their children, but what is there to do with their sons?  Amidst all of the pink, the princesses and the pixie dust, there are things to do with your little fella.  Promise!

Following is a list of recommendations for you and your boys of any age (yes, husbands count too!).  Some are included with park admission, some are extra activities.  This is definitely not an exhaustive list, and there is no reason a young squire wouldn’t enjoy some time with those lovely Princesses or Pixies either…just like there is no reason your little lady wouldn’t enjoy a trip to see Lightning McQueen or Captain Jack Sparrow.  No stereotypes here – just some good recommendations!

Disney’s Family Magic Tour
Magic Kingdom
Pre-paid Tour Experience

This is a 1.5 to 2 hour guided interactive quest to save Magic Kingdom from the evil plans of a Disney Villain.  Your tour group will search for clues, solve puzzles and participate in a scavenger hunt throughout the park to save it from the Villain’s scheme.

Theme park admission is required.  This tour is $39 per person.  All ages are welcome, but it’s probably best for guests aged 4 to 10 years and their parents.










Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage
Contemporary Resort
Pre-paid Tour Experience

During this voyage you will have the opportunity to watch the Magic Kingdom fireworks show along with hearing pirate tales, answering Disney trivia and, on select nights, watching the Electric Water Pageant – all from the perfect vantage point of your seat on a “pirate ship” in the Seven Seas Lagoon.

You will start at the Contemporary Resort, where you meet your group and gather whatever snacks and non-alcoholic beverages you would like to take with you on your trip.  Then you will head to the docks, where Captain Hook and Smee are available for photo opportunities.  After the festivities, on the voyage back to the docks, your pirate host, Patch, tells the story of Peter Pan.

Normal operating hours are Friday through Monday, with the event starting one hour and 30 minutes prior to the scheduled fireworks show. Each of the two boats accommodates up to 60 Guests.  The cruise lasts from 1 to 3 hours, and is a pre-paid experience.  Guests aged 10 and over are $53.99 and kids between 3 and 9 are $30.99 each.
