« back to Kids 5-10
We are visiting WDW for the first time in early December. We have an 8-year-old and an 11-year-old boy? What would you recommend for us to not miss?

What a great time of year for your first trip to Walt Disney World!
All of the parks will be decked out in their holiday finest, so you'll be even more wowed by the magic on this trip.
Your boys are likely tall enough for every attraction, so I'll create the must-dos per park for a December
trip with that in mind:
: Big Thunder Mountain Railroad; Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin; Haunted Mansion; 'it's a small world"; Jungle Cruise; Mickey's PhilharMagic; Monster's, Inc. Laugh Floor; Peter Pan's Flight; Pirates of the Caribbean; Space Mountain; Stitch's Great Escape!; Main Street Electrical Parade; Wishes Nighttime Spectacular
: Innoventions; Mission: SPACE; The Seas with Nemo & Friends; Soarin'; Spaceship Earth; Test Track; Turtle Talk with Crush; IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth;
Disney's Hollywood Studios
: Muppet*Vision 3D; Rock 'n' Roller Coaster; Star Tours; Toy Story Midway Mania!; The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror; Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular!; Jedi Training Academy; Fantasmic! The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights
Disney's Animal Kingdom
: DINOSAUR; Expedition Everest; It's Tough to be a Bug; Kilimanjaro Safaris; Primeval Whirl
Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party (additional ticket required) is another great holiday tradition, as is the always fabulous Candlelight Processional. Book a Candlelight Processional Dinner Package to avoid the hassle of waiting in line in the hopes of getting a seat at the show. At the time of this writing, some reservations were still available. Both of these experiences are a great way to enjoy WDW at its holiday finest!
