Parking on the day of the class.

When we did the YES tickets through the homeschool group, we received free parking for the days we were actually IN classes. Is this true for the YES Individual program as well?
Thanks

I had to pay for parking when I went to the Animation class in DS. A coworker, however, didn't have to pay at MK for her class. Apparently it was so early they weren't manning the booths yet.

Last time we just had to show our print out of the class and being a chaperone, so that is why I am asking.

I was the only one listed as a chaperone so I picked them up without my husband with no issues. I think you'll be fine.

Last time I picked up our tickets with half our family still on the road hours away. My name was one of the adults listed but none of the other adults were with me when I picked up the tickets. They did ask to see my paperwork and an ID (if I remember correctly).

This is great info! My DS12 will love this. Just curious....what happens if they cancel a class and you've already purchased your discounted tickets? Do they try to fit you into another class? We are planning on going in June or August 2013. Thanks.

Thanks! I didn't think it would be a problem but I just wanted to make sure.

I'm getting so excited for a our trip/class! We've done our itinerary and I think that we are actually going to use every park day and plus option on our passes!!!

We're getting excited too. We had an extra park day but now that AK changed 2 nights to 8 pm closings, I think we'll use the last day. We're also planning two water park days, one at each.

Hello all

Quick question. I see that on the YES website there are programs for December but only in DisneyLAND. Does anyone know if they will be available at The World?

TIA!

We homeschool but can't make homeschool days next year (we can only go the first 2 weeks of sept and I see they are usually later than that) BUT then I saw the individual yes program My kids are so excited they can at least take a class.

I emailed a question in to the yes info place but just got a copied answer which still doesn't answer my question. I wanted to know if I buy the 8 day yes ticket with park hopper and water park option, do we get 8 park days and 5 additional days at the water park options or is it just 8 days total?

2nd question How fast do the classes go? Is this like CRT, be ready at 6am, call on four phones kind of thing? Or can I just call in a few days after the times are posted

Thank you for your help

Transportation Suggestions

We are taking 7 Little Brothers (from Big Bros Big Sisters), all age 11, to Disney next month. We are all staying in a Treehouse. And for Magic Kingdom day, we are taking The American Story tour, meeting at TTC at 7:15 AM. [After we figure out this transportation question, I will try to come up with a plan to get 7 6th grade boys up, fed, washed, dressed and out the door to make it to TTC by 7:15 AM.]

We have to arrange our own transportation from SSR THV to TTC to get there by 7:15 AM. Any suggestions? I have not yet called any car service or taxi service yet. Just wondering what other's experiences have been. Disney busses don't run that early in the morning said the YES program. And we are taking Magical Express from the airport to the resort.

I strongly suggest posting your question on the Transportation board. They are super knowledgeable about how to get from place to place at odd times of day! Good luck -- your trip with all those Little Brothers sounds both challenging and rewarding.

1st question - your 8 day pass will have 8 park days; the days for water parks & more are in addition to those 8 days.

2nd question - some of the classes can go fast but not like CRT. The release date of the classes isn't typically known so you have to keep checking. Plus it seems they often add additional classes as time goes on. (If you pay attention to this board/thread you will be able to figure out pretty quickly when the schedule has opened up.)
