Mother/daughter trip for soccer

I am so excited to be headed back to Disney. This will be our second time. Staying at All-Star Sports because that is where her team is staying for the tournament. We will be there 5 days but will probably only have 2 days to visit the parks. Thinking about getting park tickets for 4 days and going after her games.

We know we want to hit HS and MK, but not sure what else. Any recommendations for a mom and 12 yr old soccer player.

If I were getting a 4 day pass I would go to Epcot one evening, too. I think she would enjoy eating at the Land and ride soaring. Epcot has a great fireworks show. Even though Epcot doesn't have your roller coaster rides, my daughter and nieces enjoyed seeing Epcot, too.

I agree - our family loves EPCOT. We have 4 kids from 10-17 and they love EPCOT. They all love the International shopping in the World Showcase. They love Soarin'. They enjoy the Innoventions East and West buildings. In one of them you can make a Video game and then you can email it to yourself when you are done - to play at home. Also Spaceship Earth - you can make your own world and email it to yourself when you are done. EPCOT is great for a 12 year old girl. We all love HS and MK too.

Go to Epcot. Take pictures of her juggling a ball in front of each country. That's what we did with our 12 year old last summer. I'm planning to get video of her doing it in a few weeks.

I would check the entertainment schedule as I got closer to my trip to see when or if they are doing the Main Street Electrical Parade while I was there. I always seem to miss it because it only runs a couple of times a week. If the parade is not being held on the one full day that I had scheduled for MK, I would do a second 1/2-day at the MK just to be able to catch it. Of all the parks, I find that MK and Epcot are the two parks that I can definitely spend more than a day visiting.
