    My lips are sealed... I won't tell a soul :littleangel:

    It's not like they are going to ask for his birth certificate, right?

    Based on the class descriptions, the EPCOT class would be the only one he might be able to do, but I can always ask. The worst they can say is no. If there is enough interest in that class, I'm happy to coordinate it too.:goodvibes

    I just noticed the dates you are looking to do the classes. We would only be able to participate on Dec 18th, as we are planning to leave for home that evening.

    I mentioned to Jen (DD) that she'd be interested in the "American Story" because she loves History and her response to me was..."Mom, are you pimping me out for cheap tickets?" :sad2: :sad2: :sad2: She is her father's daughter...;)

    Well..... I don't know if I want to get involved in pimped out child, but if a parent already had an AP, then I might be interested in borrowing a child to get the discounted ticket.

    Heck! I'd even like to go to the classes.

    Trouble is, it is only a five day ticket. I am planning a longer stay.

    We would SO be interested in doing this, except like kimisabella, we also are leaving for home on December 18th. Shoot, if it was just a few days earlier, we would LOVE to do it.

    I hope it works out for you. I think kids would love an in-park learning experience like that. I know I would love it too. Sounds fun! :thumbsup2

    I have organized these YES programs for my Boy Scout Troop on 2 trips (in 2000 & 2007). The programs are amazing and lots of fun for the kids. I took kids ages 6th-12th grade.

    True, the park ticket discount is available for the adults, but all of the=ose adults canoot atttend the class. Just be aware you are limited to 2 or 3 adults for every 10 kids in the class.

    The American Story was great for the fact we got to see the presidents up & close before the park opened. It really made an impact on the kids learning about them in school.

    In any event- it is well worth it! Have fun! :thumbsup2

    Somehow I don't think many of us would be upset by this ;)
