Well I am definitely not going to lie! That is NOT what I want to be teaching my boys!


I guess I will see when the YES dates come out for July. Maybe I can call and see if they will allow at least 2 to go together and then try to get in the same park as some of you suggested. Thanks for the tips!

Does anyone know what's going on the week of Feb 6th? We were hoping for a class or two for our 12 and 10yo's but for whatever reason, the only day that week that they are offering YES is Feb 6th. Sadly we don't arrive until noon that day.

Is that a vacation week for some states? Just curious if we chose a bad week. I have noticed a couple of hotels have that week blocked out also.

Thanks, James.

Just checked the prices for a Jan 1013 class and it is almost $500 more for YES tix for us than it would have been in 2012. Wish we had sign up for Oct classes now. I didn't know they planned on changing the pricing structure.

Price increase is making alot of people rethink their plans.

I am glad we were able to take advantage of classes this past June.
The low cost enabled my friend and her 2 girls to join us for vacation.

Taking a break to let the FP+ dust settle and to bring the magic back- April 2014 will be offsite in a 3 bedroom townhouse, sleeping in, relaxing at Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon with a day or two at Legoland mixed in. Spending our nights hitting local restaurants, playing at DisneyQuest, and wherever else we decide to go and do.

My son aged out last year and I am glad to have been able to have the discount for three years. We will most likely be doing a Universal only vacation this year, as my son is done with WDW. I'll probably want to head back after the FLE is totally done.

I wanted to let people know what happened to me with our YES tickets. We are here now, and picked up our tickets on October 25. Yesterday we had a 8:25 breakfast at the castle, so we were rushing in to make our reservation. As we attempted to enter MK we were told our passes had expired the day before.

We went to the ticket booth and the CM there was adamant that there was no way that the expiry date was wrong and the only way we would get in is to buy another ticket. If we hadn't already paid $150 for breakfast we would have just gone back to the room to get our original confirmation. So we paid the additional money. It put a damper on the day to say the least we had no plans to pay more for tickets, we also have 2 more days left on our trip and other reservations I hadn't cancelled and would have to pay a no show fee for. We were looking at an extra $750 to finish the trip. I wasn't hopeful the YES tickets could be fixed based on what we were told at the gate.

When we got back to the room I found our original confirmation and that the expiry was suppose to be November 14 So at nearly 10pm with an exhausted 7 year old we had to go to guest services at downtown Disney. It took nearly 2 hours but they were able to refund our purchased ticket and give us comp tickets to replace the days lost from the YES tickets. Between the time spent that morning and then in the evening we spent nearly 3 hours trying to fix a mistake that was not ours

The moral of the story check the expiry date printed on your tickets when you pick them up. I didn't and it caused a real headache.

We go that same time frame (Feb 1-8) and it looks like they offer classes on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. If you are staying into the next week, you could sign up for one then. It looks like there are still openings for classes on the 11th, 12th and 13th.

I'm sure the answer to this is somewhere but I don't know where to find it.

On the website I see they only have dates for January and February and I hear people talking about early Summer and Fall. Do they offer programs in the Spring typically? We are going in the first week of May and just wondering what the liklihood is that they will be offering something then. TIA

So sorry that happened to you!
Thanks for sharing this. I have our ADR confirmation #s on a spreadsheet but it didn't occur to me that I should keep the ticket info handy, too, as this is our first year in the YES program. Hopefully your story will help others avoid the problems you experienced.

Historically, classes for the rest of the year have been posted in February. There are not classes every month though.

Due to the rather large price increase for my family (over $500 more), we will not be doing a YES class in 2013.

I just checked the prices and this would also run our family $500 more over last year. I then checked the regular prices and it is hardly a difference! Guess we won't be doing the Y.E.S program again.
