    Hi All! You have a wonderful forum and I love spending time looking around!

    We will be going to FL October 19-28 and it will be myself, my husband and my 13 year old step-daughter. My step-daughter has been to WDW roughly 9 times and has done most of the traditional things. She is a Disney lover through and through. I was able to go to some of the Disney parks for the first time in March and I also fell in love!

    I am looking for ideas of unique things to do that she maybe hasn't done before, but want to keep it a surprise for her. I looked into the Dinner with an Imagineer and that was all booked up. I know there has got to be other things out there that we can do, but I just am not sure what there is. We are not staying on a Disney property but have a car and are willing to travel. We have reservations at Chef Mickey's and Victoria & Albert's, but welcome any/all ideas. She had done the castle dining at MK so we aren't looking to do that.

    Thank you in advance for your ideas!!

    Keys to the Kingdom tour (includes going down into the service tunnels underneath the Magic Kingdom).

    Well, there are some sports oriented things like hang gliding, and renting boats, and horse back riding. Is there anything like that she would like?

    Young teens are tricky!

    Hi,

    We fed alligators at gatorland in the dark! BBQ bash I think it was called, included a BBQ and disco and animal petting. Was good fun and unusual!

    Looking at the site you've got the option to do the dolphin experience and dive experience at Epcot.
    Also you've got the steam train tour - we did this a few years back and it was really good.

    Wow, interesting. I would have thought 13 would have been old enough for this.

    Most of the tours require a person to be 16. We had to wait to do the Keys to the Kingdom tour for when Alysia turned 16. You might see something backstage that could ruin the magic for you. I would think 13 or 14 would be old enough

    I'm not absolutely certain but I think in order to do the Dive Experience that you must be an experienced diver.
