2. Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster is a thrilling ride in a stretch limo taking guests to an Aerosmith concert. The limo goes from 0 to 57 mph in 2.8 seconds.

3. Expedition Everest is a classic favorite but isn’t for the faint of heart. Take a ride through the Himalayan Mountains while trying to escape the Yeti. Just watch out for the broken track!

4. Mission: Space replicates an Earth take off and a Mars landing. A real astronaut consulted on this attraction and says it is as close to a real spaceship experience as possible without going to space. Even some adults can’t handle this ride!

Water Experiences

5. Summit Plummet is a 120 foot high water slide at Blizzard Beach that drops riders at 60 mph. Definitely thrilling!

6. Surfing at Typhoon Lagoon is always an option, but you’ll need a parent’s signature for this one and $150. It only happens before the park opens, so you’ll have to be up early!

7. How about renting a boat or a jet ski? That’s right! Any guests at least 12 years of age and five feet tall can drive a Sea Raycer. Younger guests can ride as passengers. Guests at least 18 years of age can rent a variety of other boats.

Shopping

8. With your parents’ permission, perhaps you and some older siblings or friends could go shopping. Disney Springs offers plenty of shopping including Starbucks, the Marketplace Co-op, Tren-D, World of Disney (the largest Disney store in the world), and D-Street.

Disney Springs has some great shopping experiences for teens.
