What makes a trip to Disney World great changes as children get older.

The best rides and attractions for tweens at Disney World are different from what excites the young crowd. Tweens will likely be more excited by thrilling rides and experiences, moreso than characters and whimsy, although they may enjoy those as well!

Hollywood Studios, Disney Springs, and the Disney World water parks – Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach, might be worth a visit.

Make sure you book your FastPasses. Many of these rides are very popular!

Here are some of the rides for the tween age group. We do recommend trying the water parks, as these are often a big hit.
