Disney After Hours
Do your thrill-seeking tweens and teens love sleeping in and staying up late? How about complimentary snacks and lower wait times? If that all sounds like something your older kids will love, be sure to check out Disney After Hours. This separately ticketed event offers special access to some of the most popular attractions in the park, like Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT and TRON Lightcycle / Run presented by Enterprise at Magic Kingdom Park.


Technology and Gaming
If your tweens and teens are avid gamers, they will love experiencing all the interactive attractions throughout the theme parks. Our kids love taking control and piloting the Millennium Falcon together or challenging each other to see who can earn the highest score on Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin. But did you know older kids can also interact with the theme parks right from their smartphones? Check out the Play Disney Parks App the next time you are at Disney World!

Unique Dining Experiences
Older kids tend to be more adventurous, which means this is the perfect age to try new things. We love challenging our kids to expand their palates and explore new flavors on Disney vacations. With over 200 dining locations at Walt Disney World that offer diverse cuisines and uniquely themed dining experiences, the possibilities are endless!

Blizzard Beach

Disney Water Parks
The Disney Water Parks are a must-do for tweens and teens!
