Fun Touring Ideas when Taking Boys at Disney World

It seems there is so much a parent can do at Disney World with their little girls. From tea parties to princess makeovers, dinner with Cinderella, and enchanted tales with Belle, you may wonder what there is to do with your little pirate at Disney World. Well let me tell you there are quite a few things!

Here is a list of some of my favorites!

Pirates League-

If your little one is over the age of three a pirate make over may be in order! You can choose from several different looks and most price under $35.00. This great experience can be found near the entrance to Pirates of the Caribbean in Adventureland in the Magic Kingdom. If you have a younger boy or want something a little less expensive,  face painters can be found in numerous locations and the pirate face is $12.00!

Pirate Cruises-

There are several pirate cruises to choose from, but with each one you can expect to pay around $31.95 per child aged 4-12. Aboard the cruise kids will become pirates and at each port they will find a new treasure and then they will enjoy a lunch at the last stop! A great way to spend a few hours!

Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom-

This interactive game is great for boys of all ages, but of course the game is open to everyone! Pick up your cards at the Fire Station on Main Street and being this phenomenal role playing game!

Jedi Training Academy-

At Hollywood Studios kids aged 4-12 can learn to handle a light saber and eventually take on Darth Vader! This is a wonderful activity, but space is limited. The show takes place near the Star Tours Attraction, but sign ups are at The ABC Sound Stage. If you think your child would like to participate make sign ups your first stop as soon as you get through the turnstiles. If your child ends up participating in the show they will be given a light saber and robe and taught a routine! A great opportunity to become part of the the force!

Character Dining-

Not all character dining locations are based around Disney royalty. For a meal without princesses try The Crystal Palace and dine with Pooh and friends, Chef Mickey’s to see the fab five, Garden Grill to see Chip and Dale along with Farmer Mickey and Pluto, or Ohana for Lilo and Stitch along with Mickey and Pluto!


Some rides your son may enjoy include: Test Track, Soarin, Kali River Rapids, Kilimanjaro Safari, Buzz Lightyears Space Ranger Spin, Big Thunder Mountain, Space Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, Peter Pan’s Flight, Tommorowland Speedway, Toy Story Mania, and Star Tours.


When you travel with your son to Disney World there is plenty for him to do! The great part about Disney is they truly make something for everyone to enjoy!
