Amanda's 11, but she still wasn't too old to enjoy hugging a few characters . . . .
Or to delight in a Mickey-shaped treat. . . .
And believe it or not, SHE is the one who begged us to wait thirty minutes to ride Dumbo:
She loved Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Space Mountain, which were not too heart-pounding for her (Do you like my attempt to get one of those cool roller coaster reaction photos from the car in front of them?).
And of course, there are plenty of tween and teen oriented activities, including the American Idol experience, which was a lot of fun.
More than once she told us, "I want to come to Disney every year for our vacation." I'm pretty sure that's not going to happen unless I get invited to attend another Disney Social Media Moms event* to which families are invited (in which case we'd go again next month).
In spite of thinking that it might be a "once in a lifetime experience," I'm pretty sure that we'll be back sometime. I don't think that the magic is going to fade anytime soon.
Don't we look like we enjoyed every minute of it?

*Disclosure: I attended the Disney Social Media Moms conference, for which I paid I fee, but received a great family trip to Walt Disney World that far exceeded what I paid out. Disney did not tell me what to say, nor require anything from me in exchange for the benefit I received.
