Yes, you can have fun with teens in Walt Disney World Resort, and we know how!
Magical moments happen every day at the Walt Disney World resort. The wonder in a child’s eyes when they see their favorite Disney character appear or greet them for the first time. Or maybe conquering fear and riding a thrill ride for the first time. Enjoying family time with your nearest and dearest or maybe your whole extended family that will be making memories that last a lifetime.
Can you outgrow such magic? We think not! However, as your teen has their gaze continuously focused on their devices or video game screens, it may seem harder to make those special moments happen. It may just take a fresh approach to make what may look “too young” for your teen into an exciting vacation once again.
The Dumbo ride can be fun again when you take a spin and perfectly time capturing their smiling face with the iconic castle in the background. We know a resort that boasts a pool area that covers three acres and is in walking distance or a quick boat ride to two theme parks. If social media posts are your teen’s thing, we know all the trendy and unique photo ops throughout the theme parks to capture that sure to be “liked” post. Think you and your teen are too old to dress up as your favorite character? You should try what is known as Disney Bounding for a comfortable and fun way to do it again. If you have a wish list agenda that seems impossible in a single day (like riding all the thrill rides in all four theme parks in a single day), then maybe a VIP Private Tour is just what you want. We have all the details on this and more included below.
Our top pick for your resort stays with teens… The Yacht and Beach Club Resorts
These two deluxe resorts connect by their shared three-acre pool area called Stormalong Bay. These resorts are located in the Epcot area, and that theme park is in walking distance, or you can take a ride on the water taxis via Crescent Lake to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. Which is an excellent option if your teens (age 14 years old +) want to visit either of these very popular theme parks on their own.
At Stormalong Bay, climb the mast and zip down one of the highest hotel waterslides at Walt Disney World Resort. Catch currents on an inner tube in the lazy river, or if you prefer to a more tranquil experience? Explore three all-ages quiet pools—each with a whirlpool spa which is located throughout Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts.
Some of the dining options at the Beach Club include; Beaches and Cream Soda Shop and Cape May Cafe, which is a character dining venue during breakfast and is a buffet full of seafood delights at dinner. Some of the Yacht Club’s dining options include; the highly-rated Yachtsman Steakhouse, as well as, the Ale & Compass Restaurant.
Or you can pilot your own adventure. Whether you need speed or crave a relaxing excursion, you can rent a boat just right for you at the resorts’ marina. Choose from Sea Raycer by Sea Ray® (seats up to 2 guests), a Boston Whaler® Montauk (seats up to 6 guests), or a Sun Tracker® Pontoon boats (seats up to 10). Then cast off with your crew—enjoying theme park views and natural surroundings as you cruise our scenic lakes, lagoons and inlets.
Or would you rather visit the Ship Shape Massage, Salon and Fitness Club which offers a chance to workout with state of the art equipment, schedule a massage or pamper yourself from head to toe at the beauty and barbershop.

Photography for teens in the Walt Disney World parks…
Social media has taken photography to a whole new level on any vacation but especially Disney destinations. We had our Ears Headquarter kid experts go on a mission to find and photograph many of the spots seen all over social media right now. They also make adorable pictures to remember these special trips. We suggest making a photo book with your loved ones in some of these unique spots.
Before we detail the spots, here are a few of the props suggested by our kid experts; Mickey Bar, Pretzel, Dole Whip, Mickey Ears, Candy or ask a balloon seller to hold the balloons.
Disney Bounding an excellent way for teens to “dress up” as their favorite character
For the uninitiated, Disney Bounding is a subtle, more fashion-forward way for fans to show their love for Disney. Instead of wearing full-on costumes, Disney Bounders dress up in stylish, everyday outfits that are inspired by a particular character. What a great way for your teen to dress up as their favorite character in a grown-up way. Check out some Disney Bounding ideas and look at some photos visit Pinterest by clicking on the link below.
