With its heart-pounding attractions, unique merchandise and memorable food & beverage options, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is a must visit.

    Magic Kingdom ® Park

    The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train family coaster is perfect for kids too old for kiddy rides but not tall enough for big ones.

    There's enchantment and adventure everywhere you turn at Magic Kingdom® Park. This is where your best memories are rekindled and new ones are made every day. Whether you prefer to travel on a magic carpet, pirate ship or space rocket, each of the six magical lands offers plenty of lovable characters to fill an autograph book and the special moments to fill a memory card.

Become part of the "tale as old as time" during Enchanted Tales with Belle and join Ariel and her friends for the musical Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid.

Celebrate the stories you know and love in a whole new way with a magical mix of innovative floats, vibrant costumes and original music during the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade.

    Epcot ®

    Counting your steps to fitness? A walk around the lake adds up to a full mile at the World Showcase.

    Of course, there's plenty for children to laugh, shout and learn about. But Epcot® Theme Park holds a special place in the hearts and minds of adults and older kids. Spaceship Earth continues to explore the known world and the far beyond. Turtle Talk with Crush from Disney/Pixar's Finding Nemo is a totally cool place to chill. Soarin™ will take your breath away while taking you on a hang glider flight you'll never forget. Then design a virtual concept vehicle and take a high-octane spin on Test Track® Presented by Chevrolet®.

    Stroll the streets, landmarks, shops and restaurants of foreign lands in the World Showcase. The Cast Members at each "country" are natives of those lands staying in America to pursue their education. It's a meet-and-greet with an accent on culture and international fun.

    Keep an eye on the calendar for special festivals throughout the year, including the always tasteful International Food & Wine Festival in the fall, and the very pretty and equally fragrant International Flower & Garden Festival in the spring.

    Located in the Norway pavilion, the Frozen Ever After attraction transports guests to Arendelle along with "Royal Sommerhus", a charming cabin where guests can meet Anna and Elsa.

    There are days when life's a zoo. But not here. Because Animal Kingdom® is a place where you can literally walk and talk with the animals.

    Beyond the Theme Parks

Disney's Typhoon Lagoon water park is a tropical paradise that blows other water parks away, and Disney's Blizzard Beach water park is a ski resort that melted into the perfect playground. Both are overflowing with fun for little ones, with special areas created just for them! Not to mention, there's lots of adventure the whole family can enjoy together, too.

    The sights, the sounds, the shows and – drum roll please – the shopping. There's only one place on where it all comes together like this. Disney Springs™. From the family fun of classic bowling at Splitsville Luxury Lanes to the fun-filled live entertainment, there's something to explore around every corner. With its recent expansion Disney Springs™ doubled the number of shopping, dining and entertainment experiences to more than 150.
