For me giving I am on the East Coast, I will not be able to take advantage as I needed to know for sure that I got accepted and the class was happening. Therefore, I am going to plan the trip for the end of Sept 2013 and hope that we get into a class then.

I will go to WDW for a class, Disneyland, I will have to be planning a trip there and hope I get a class. Much different policies.
Do you know if it is the same in that you can purchase tickets and still use them if the class cancels? We already have a trip planned to Disneyland for the end of January and the class dates work perfectly for us. It would save us a lot to be able to get park tickets and have my daughter take a class or two.

Thanks for any info that you have. I may have to call them later and see what the deal is for those classes.

The site lists Individual Enrollment dates for Jan and Feb 2013 at WDW but then on the drop down menu for purchasing tickets, IE is not an option

There seem to be very limited dates for the individual enrollment- I am looking at Jan and Feb and most programs have one or two days open available for the whole month. Is this typical or have they really cut down on the programs offered for next year?

My understanding is that you have to wait to hear that the class is confirmed before you can buy the tickets. (At least, that is what I am in the process of waiting for, with the Dec classes)

If I were you, I would go ahead and fill out and fax the form and send the email. He will confirm if there is still room in the class, then tell you to wait for the 2nd email (2-3 weeks before the class starts) to confirm and purchase the ticket package.

They have classes out there that sounds great, so if they have classes on a date you are going to be there, I would definitely sign up , fax the form send a confirmation email and wait. If at two weeks your class is cancelled, you can always buy discount tickets at http://arestravel.com/722_DisneylandResort.html aRes which is where many other dis people have bought their tickets.

For me, I was trying to go for the leadership class and I can't wait to book airfare 2 weeks before the class is confirmed. SO it is best for people in your situation, those already going that have found a class for their dates I hope you tell me all about the class if you get it!! I would love DS to do a few of the classes they offer.

Yeah, I'm seeing tabs for Individual Enrollment, and am able to find dates when I drill down, but no way to actually purchase tickets (just groups). Argh!!!

Is anyone seeing the aforementioned updated ticket policies?

I just called and was told that 2013 Individual Enrollment will not be open for registration until the end of the month. Only groups are eligible to register at this time. I also asked about discounted tickets and was told that only one adult per family is eligible for the discount. (This is for WDW.)

Scheduled for a class next Tuesday the 23rd. Should I be receiving any confirmation other than the one I got when I originally booked?

Thanks!

I am thinking they are in the process of deploying the new website and hopefully will have it fully functional soon.

One adult per family? Darn! We have 3 kids, one in HS, the others in elementary. So, it's not like we can put them all in the same class.

Did they say if prices went up? I only see the 2012 prices right now.

Thank you for sharing your information. Why would they post the dates and have a register/purchase tickets option if it is not available?

If you proceed as if you are going to order group tickets, you can see the 2013 prices. I only looked at 7 day hoppers, which increased from approximately $199 to $209. Still a great deal in my opinion.

If I understand correctly, one adult could accompany a child to one class while another accompanies a different child to a second class, but only one of the adults will qualify for the discounted ticket price.

My daughter participated in the Synergy in Science class on Monday morning. I stayed with my younger daughter and she attended with her dad. She liked it very much and would like to do YES again when we come back next time My husband took quite a few pictures. I'll post some later. She participated in the questions, made a new friend, and enjoyed the activities. I am so glad we did the class! We were very pleased and would recommend it to others. My daughter is a bit bookish (dare I say "nerdy"? though, adorable...) and she loves school. I kept making her put her book down in the parks the one day So, going to school at Disney was very cool to her When I told my brother about the class, his reply was that his kids would HATE that! Different strokes, I guess...
