The Top 10 Rides for Tweens at Walt Disney World

Here are recommendations from my 9 and 11 year old tween girls for the top 10 rides for tweens at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Keep in mind that while many tweens may love Roller Coasters, my girls aren’t big fans of extreme rides, so this list includes many rides that are great for all ages.
