You’ve got a teen and you’re doing to Walt Disney World, what things must a teen do at Walt Disney World? Think Disney World is just for the kids? We completely beg to differ. We asked our Walt Disney World teen expert Brianna what were the top five things teens needed to do at Disney World. Here’s what Brianna recommends:
5 Things Teens Must Do At Disney
#5 Epcot’s Around the World – Teens At Disney World
Take a trip around the world; see some of the most iconic architecture from different countries, taste different foods, experience different cultures, and listen to many styles of music. If you do find yourself walking around the world, I highly recommend stopping by the French Patisserie for delicious pastries. You could also head over to Japan and select an oyster and take home a beautiful pearl. You’ll have a great view to watch the firework show all around the world area. There are a ton of fun things to do with a minimum wait.
We learn about different cultures in school so as a teen I think that seeing those cultures is the key to really understanding just how big the world is which is why every teen must visit Around the World
#4 Animal Kingdom’s Expedition Everest – Teens At Disney World
Visit Nepal and take-on Mt.Everest, if you dare! You will go through a series of twists and turns to try and escape a ferocious Yeti. This ride is a lot of fun and usually has a wait time from thirty minutes to an hour, you may want to use one of your ‘FastPasses’ for this one. If you like thrills you’ll love this ride. I love this ride so much so I always plan ahead which is really important if you don’t want to be stuck standing in line forever. Use that FastPass on this one and it’s a must see for any teenager at Disney World.
#3 Hollywood Studios’ Rock N Roller Coaster – Teens At Disney World
Rock-on with Aerosmith as you go from zero to sixty in a matter of seconds. You’ll be shot through the dark on a thrilling course of twists and turns. This is an experience you will find nowhere else. The only downside to this ride is the long lines; may be another opportunity for a ‘FastPass.’
#2 Magic Kingdom’s ‘Happily Ever After’ – Teens At Disney World
Watch Cinderella’s Castle transform into a collage of characters, color, music and fireworks. It is a beautiful show that you must experience while you are at Disney. This show is usually packed so try to get a spot early (people start committing to locations up to two hours before the show.) You will not find an experience like this anywhere else and you will regret it if you don’t go.
#1 Animal Kingdom’s ‘Pandora’ – Teens At Disney World
Walking into Pandora is like walking onto a whole other planet, with strange plants and floating islands. Pandora is home to strange cuisines and amazing attractions including ‘Na’vi River Journey’ and ‘Avatars Flight of Passage’. The downfall to Pandora is the wait time, be prepared to wait up to three and a half hours for ‘Avatars Flight of Passage’ or try to get a FastPass. Although three hours sounds like a long time, trust me, it is worth it. Pandora is a world full of surprises and tons of fun, and it is a must see for teens at Walt Disney World.
