My dd has a class at EPCOT. Three of us are planning to go to HS that day and meet up later. We are offsite. Do the Disney buses run from EPCOT to HS early in the morning? Her class is 8:30am. Thanks!

My dd (10) and DH did the Engery and Waves class today at MK. Both said it was fun. DD said she would like to do another class next year. The beginning was a little confusing as it said to meet at the floral mickey inside the turnstiles. So we found a bunch of people to the side and joined them (we did confirm they were doing the program). It was kind of crowded and lots of people taking pictures by the floral mickey. I saw someone with a clipboard over by the turnstiles and asked if they were the YES program (which they were). So I went and told people to go where he was. There was no sign, no announcement of the YES check in. There was just so many people in that area I can understand how someone could miss the check in.

DD's group rode Stitch, Haunted Mansion and watched Philharmagic. She said the best part was the HM where they got to see how they did the "party" scene. Other than that she said it was ok. DH said the kids started getting fidgety during the "lecture" part but the leader did a good job trying to keep them on pace.

DD was sad she had to give back her nametag at the end (it was just a sticky with her name on it - no biggie).

I think it was a great opportunity for DD and hopefully she can do another class next year.

Take next time just take a picture of the nametag. That way you can decorate it and it will fit nicely in a scap book. Glad she enjoyed the class.

Yes, you can hop from park to park on the buses anytime of day. The only exception is if you take the bus to Downtown Disney where they only run the buses to the parks later in the day. This is due to the many people who used to park at DD in the morning and hop on the buses to the parks to avoid paying the parking fee. Your plan should work out fine!

From Hollywood Studios, it would be faster & probably more convenient to either walk or take the boat to epoch, rather than the bus. I think others have said YES can enter through the I-gate.

Unless things have changed recently, they do not run buses between DTD and the parks at any time of the day.

Taking the boat takes a while. Just so you know.

Yeah - I did take a pic - she just wanted the actual tag. She's 10 and keeps everything. Hoarder in the making.

Edit: I see you changed your post while I was posting... If they are indeed running directly between parks and DTD, that's new...

Will there be any YES individual groups for early December? Like the 8th-16th? There is nothing there right now.

Also, is there another option on the YES that is a little pricer but listed under field trips?

A friend is asking me about these options and I don't know what to tell her. She wants to go that 2nd week of Dec.

Thanks,

Dawn

There are no YES classes offered in December and I'm not sure about your 2nd question. I've never heard of anything like that.

I have never heard of YES classes being offered for the month of December sorry.

I'm not familiar with a "field trip" option.

Hope this helps!

Jumping on this thread....

We did a YES program summer 2010 and loved it. My DH has a convention in Orlando in June, and I would LOVE it if we could go again.

Waiting for 2013 YES programs to be posted. Hoping we can go. I started a new job last month, and we just bought a new house, so it's not an easy time to go, but want to make it work!

disappointed

I was hoping to see something on the website today for January.
Anyone heard anything on when they will update for 2013?
This is driving me crazy, trying to secure dinning and other events and don't know if an when the classes will be offered. Plus If the changes are really severe I might want to take advantage of the package and I am afraid there won't be many opinions left. If I don't see anything by Wednesday I think I might need to be out this year.
