The registration form must be wonky - because we are definitely registered for that date. I noticed it when browsing the classes, too. It doesn't show up initially, but after you enter your arrival/departure dates it does show up....

I am SO excited!! And I can't tell anybody....except my DISers

Does anyone know if Disney typically offers YES classes the week after Thanksgiving? Trying to plan a trip for next year.

Thank you!

Historically, the classes have been offered January-February, and June-October.

Hi everyone! My son and daughter are signed up for classes on the 23rd and 24th of this month. I received my son's confirmation yesterday for his class on 7/23, but have not yet received the email confirmation for my DD's class on 7/24 (Captivating Moments). Has anyone else received their confirmation for that class? I am getting worried that maybe the class was cancelled, which would be awful, since she and I are so looking forward to the class.

Anyone got any news on that class?

I'm so glad I checked this thread. I signed up my DS and DD for the 7/24 Captivating Moments. A few days ago I got the confirmation for DS, but DD's name was not on it. Still have not received one for her. I even double-checked my registration confirmation that I received immediately after signing them up, and both kids names are on it. I guess I better call...

Nice! I hope your son gets to take it! How old is he? My husband would be happy to learn that other Steeler fans are in the group I'll be hanging with my younger daughter at Epcot that morning, too

My 17 yr old daughter will be attending a 715am class at MK. We must drop her off at the Ttc but then we can't enter park ourselves until rope drop... Or at least that's my understanding. Has anyone had a class this early? If so, what did the others do while the kids attended the class? Is it possible to get/keep the kid's tickets so you could secure a fastpass for them (to be used after class) while they are still in their class? Just trying to figure out some possibilities...

You could make a breakfast ADR nearby -- 'Ohana, 1900 Park Fare, Chef Mickey's for characters, or Kona Cafe, Whispering Canyon, The Wave, or Grand Floridian Cafe if you don't want characters.

If you wanted to hold onto her ticket, you'd probably have to follow the class to the park and get it from her after she went through the turnstiles. I'm not sure if that would be disruptive to the class or not. You could always ask the instructor when you signed her in, but then you wouldn't have an answer in advance.

Ok, just answering my own question. I was able to reach Dave, fabulous Dave! He was happy to enroll both my son and myself in the Captivating Images class. He was going to charge $28 for each of us, but when I told him that I wasn't going to the Energy class, he unenrolled me from that one so we only had to pay one $28 fee. Woo Hoo! I love being a chaperone and getting to tag along on this class. Hope my 16 year old won't be too embarrased!

We did a class at 7:15 Monday. We dropped the boys off at the TTC, then took the resort monorail over. We had an 8:20 reservation at Crystal Palace and were able to get in at 7:45. We waited for the group(s) to come over and then stood by the turnsyle when they went through to get their tickets. We just made sure the fastpasses we got would be good when they got out of the class.

take resort bus for 8:30 epcot class?

Hello everyone! We are heading down in a few weeks for the YES program class offered at Epcot. Classes meet at 8:30 am in front of the flagpole at Epcot. Do the resort buses run early to accommodate character breakfast at Epcot? I would prefer to not take a taxi if possible but I will if it will get me there on time!

DS#2 is 10. He is so excited about this class! I called this morning and spoke with Dave (super nice guy!) and was able to add myself and DS#2 to the class on the 15th. We will see your DH & DS there (maybe even you and your DD too if you make it over!)

For anyone who is interested in next summer, I asked Dave about classes for next June and he said that the summer schedule should go live in mid-late February

Now that 2013 rates have been published we are trying to set our dates and get things rolling. I really want to kids to be able to take a YES class our next trip so we are looking at October 2013.
When I printed the class catalog in January for this year it had Registration cooming soon for the Oct classes. Does anyone know when I should be ready to sign my kids up? I really do not want to miss out on enrolling them is trip.
