We are there in the end of September and hoping it happens during our week.
I've gotten rumors of the second week in October.

We did a class last October and saved a bundle! Not happening this year, though. For three of us, it just isn't worth it...
I'm wondering what happens on a Homeschool Day. Is it different from the classes? Are there special events and arranged meeting times, etc..??

We did HS days last oct. The program is shorter, like an hour and you don't walk around the park or anything like that. We enjoyed it and we could all participate together, no age restrictions. My 5 y.o. wasn;t very entertained by it so about half way through once the park had opened we walked over to Safari and got FP's to use when the program was over.
Prices were a little bit cheaper than yes ticket prices.

For anyone interested, the Oct Homeschool Days event is on the Y.E.S. website now. It's called "On With The Show" and takes place on Oct. 9th. There are also several classes between Oct 1- Oct 18th that you can get homeschool ticket prices.

Does anyone know if there are ever cancellations? I called and they said that there were no "wait lists" but that my DS10 could have gone into one of the other age groups. I was a little frustrated because I was at work at the time and when I got home, they were all full
Should I just keep checking everyday until we go or does anyone have any other advice? Thanks!

There are no wait lists, but I've seen classes close, then reopen. Just keep checking...

I have registered my daughter for June 26th Discovering Marine Life Conservation class at EPCOT. We have the 8 day premium tickets for everyone, but me (I have an AP). Anyway, I have skimmed through these pages and have not found out if the tickets are good for the round of golf at Oak Trails like the WP&M passes are. Anyone have any experience with this. I see they can be used at the Water Parks, DQ, WWOS, and minigolf, but nobody has mentioned Oak Trails. Thanks for any help you can provide!

We have tee times scheduled with the impression that YES tickets offer the same parks at the WP&M tickets.

Unless something has changed, you cannot pay for YES tickets with gift cards. I asked about it for our fall 2012 trip.

The tickets are sold by a third party, so no Disney gift cards. :-(
