Couple questions:

1. Do you buy the park tickets at the same time you register for class?
2. It will be me, DD6, my mom and my 2yr old. Will I be okay getting ticket for my mom? She'll be watching DD#2 during class time.
3. When does schedule typically come out for January and do classes for 6 yr old fill up pretty fast?

1. Yes, you pay during registration.

2. They say "parents", but it seems that is just to indicate that it's limited to two adult tickets. I would think buying a ticket for your mom as the second adult would work, but you could always call to confirm.

3. Not sure when the Jan classes came out, but the summer classes were available in early Feb. It depends on the class and the dates, but some of the summer classes filled the first day registration was open. All the classes during our week (August) were full last week when I checked.

The other reason to book ASAP is that there may not be many classes offered for that age group. For example, there is only one class the entire month of August for which a 5yo would meet the age requirement. There are several classes that work for my older DDs (8 and 13).

Yes, but only due to my health issues. They were very kind and understanding about my cancellation.

Thank you. I don't know when we can plan another trip as of right now, things are up in the air as I'm undergoing tests. But thank you for your kind comments.

Thank you. It would've been nice to see someone from the Disboards on the field trip. Thank you for your nice comments too. I appreciate it.



I just checked online and the October 16th Wild By Nature class we had to cancel is now open (it was closed before). Hopefully someone else can enjoy those spots now, there were five of us.

Just a little note I'll post on this thread and the one for the Premiere Disney VISA upgrade. Our YES tickets didn't come up as qualifying for the 5% VISA Disney Rewards dollars. Ie., they weren't considered a Disney purchase because they aren't coming up on statements as a Disney purchase, just as 'Student Guest Service Tickets FL with a phone number'. But I called the number on the statement and he added the difference to the rewards ($17!) So if you get your tickets through this program and use your Premiere Disney reward card, you're going to have to call then to get the 5% back.

Question about ticket pickup??? DTD???

When I called I was told that tickets can be picked up at Disney Quest at DTD before 5. But when I purchased the tickets it listed the parks as a place to pick up tickets but did not list DTD.

Can tickets be picked up from DTD? I sure hope so. I don't want to spend the morning in line waiting for tickets.

My DD7 and I will also be in that class. I just registered and it is my DH's birthday that day.

So excited!! Just signed up DS (8) and DD (10) for the animation class in Aug!! So happy they still had room. They are really excited. We have never been able to get park hoppers or water park tickets before and the price with the Yes tickets was really reasonable, so we went for it. DS LOVES to draw comics, so I think this class is going to be great for him. DD likes to draw too. DH is going with. (I will be with the younger two that am.) Thanks for the tips. I am really excited about our trip! Plus we got a AAA discount off the new suites at AOA!! Perfect for our family of 6!!

So sorry to hear about your health issues. Hope you feel better soon. I am glad to know they were understanding and gave you a refund. Hope you get your disney trip as soon as you are feeling better.

May I ask what % the AAA discount was for August? We haven't booked yet, but we would like to soon...hoping for the best discount possible.

It was 10%. Not the biggest discount, but we are too big for most rooms and I really am excited to stay on property.

Question about picking up the tickets: do we need to have the credit card we used for payment with us? DH isn't going on this trip, and the rewards credit card I was going to use is in his name.

For those of you that have called to make changes to your Yes tickets, what number did you call?

I have to make a very small change, I called Yes and they gave me a number for a "conventionplus" place. I called that number and got an answering machine.

I also sent an email and haven't had a reply yet.

No, you do not need the card. However, the chaperone attending the class must be there in person to pick up the tickets and have a Photo ID and the confirmation #. This information is on my YES confirmation email.
