looking for something different to do...

Hi everyone!! So my next family holiday begins in 49 sleeps!! yay I believe this will be our 14th trip and I was trying to think if there was something different we could do...

We have done:

Keys to the Kingdom
Wishes Dessert Party
Photopass shoot at Animal Kingdom Lodge
Segway tours
We're booked on to the Wild Africa Trek
Eaten most places we want to

And probably more...

I am 29, my brother is 24 and then my mum and dad!!

Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!! Smile

Mim!

Hmmm, where abouts are you staying? There's the sunrise or sunset safari if staying at AKL. would a spa treatment be too girly? My hubby loves them but he's quite girly hahahaha. What about horse riding in fort wilderness?

The brand new totally revamped Senses Spa opens at Saratoga Springs on July 25th and is currently taking reservations!

If you've never visited Disney Quest at Downtown Disney, try it. If you have "water parks and more" passes, you can get in for no additional charge.

I also recommend the Behind the Seeds Tour at Epcot's Land pavilion. It's very affordable by Disney tour standards and is quite interesting.

The Boardwalk is full of fun stuff to do like Jellyrolls and I think Atlantic dance hall might have activities as well. You can also rent boats and bikes at the Boardwalk, Saratoga you can also rent bikes. Animal Kingdom Lodge offers lots of activities with the Animals. You should do rides and shows you haven't experienced yet or forgot about. I feel like a lot of guests forget that you can learn to draw a Disney Character at the Magic of Disney Animation. Have you just gone to like Magic Kingdom or Hollywood Studios and just sat? They have citizens roaming both parks in the morning and late afternoon. I've heard that dinner shows are pretty good. Some resorts roast marshmallows. At Fort Wilderness, Chip and Dale come by to say hi. Most resorts show movies under the stars once it gets dark. I think they start at 8:30 pm now, the change to 8 or so once it gets darker sooner. Most resorts also have poolside activities where the whole family can play games. Some games are trivia, water games, hula hoops and much more.

Have you para sailed over Bay lake yet, or how about renting a water sprite and zooming around Seven Seas Lagoon & Bay Lake? Numerous other tours other then just the Keys to The Kingdom. Have you gone and seen the Torch Lighting ceremony at the Poly, or done a Wishes Cruise?

We discovered the drawing class at Magic of Disney Animation. It is not a expensive thing, it is free, it only last 20 mins. but it so fun. J could spend his whole day there. We got lucky this last trip we got to do Stitch and the Sorcerer Apprentice back to back. He got his favorite. I got my favorite so we went on to do other things in the park.

There is also Dining with an Imagineer. I can't remember if that was on your list of been there done that or not. I have heard great things about that too.

Angels...The goodnight kiss is in MK. If you stay in the park after the official closing time they make an announcement about 30? Minutes later...they call it a goodnight kiss. I think if you google UTube you could find a recording of it.

Every time I watch the inferno barge, I always wonder if some birds don't get instantly roasted or even vaporized if they happen to be sitting on that thing when it blows. It's a scary machine that barge!
