That makes sense. My kids have been doing these programs for years with various groups. I loved when we could go also.

I posted this on the theme park boards, but figured I would ask here too. My DH and DD are taking the 10/23 Animation Class at DHS. They have to be at their meeting place at 7:45 so I am thinking they need to be in the parking lot at 7:20 or 7:25. The park doesnt even open until 9:00am. Are they going to be able to get in the parking lot at 7:20? Do they have anyone staffing the parking booths at that time? We are staying off property so cant take WDW busses. Thanks for the help

Just took this same class on Friday 9/14. No problem getting into the parking lot at that time. Also, the meeting point is at the flag poles, so they will go through security as a group. No one was working the booth at that time, so we did not pay to park that morning.

Yay! We are 2 adults and 1 child so it sounds like this is still a workable option for us! My DS is excited to take Wild By Nature on our trip next year!

Awesome! Do you not get in trouble for not having a parking pass? Is there even a parking pass? We have stayed on property for all our other trips, and we always have our resort pass in the window. Do they give you one for parking if you are off property?
What time did you arrive at DHS? Did your kids enjoy the class? Thanks

When we went there were CMs at parking booths. Others were arriving early for breakfast So I guess it can vary. I know sometimes they leave after a certain time too. It was nice when we went to Blizzard Beach and then Disney Quest during the day and evening but wanted to go to EPCOT for Illuminations- there was no one at the booth. So that was at least one day that we didn't have to pay for parking

No, no trouble at all. This was our first time off site. There were attendants in the lot pointing you to spots, just no one in the booth collecting $. If there is someone at the booth, you'll just pay your $14, they give you your receipt and you are on your way. We left Windsor Hills around 7/7:05am and made it to Hollywood Studios with plenty of time to spare. Like I said, you won't have your bags checked until you walk in with the group.
We had one 8 yr old and 2 10 yr olds in the class. They all enjoyed it. You will learn about some of the first types of animation, go to a class (we learnt how to draw Stitch) and it ends at One Man's Dream where you will watch the movie. Enjoy your trip!!

My friend stayed offsite this week and did YES program tickets and was able to park for free - just had to show the YES paperwork at the parking booth.
