Disney YES Program: Science Edition

The Disney YES (Youth Education Series) Program is one of the most underutilized and entertainingly educational things you can enroll your student group in this school season.

Exploring Disney

Within the information-rich settings of Disneyland and Walt Disney World, these educational sessions provide hands-on educational adventures for students and teachers alike, the massive range of subjects offered bouncing between performing arts, business, history, and science.

The science program options are meant for groups of 10 or more and typically last an average of 3 hours. Each option within this range works to show students the various real-life science applications in regards to the park, its various animal residents, its rides, and all things Disney Imagineering!

Your group must buy park admission passes for the day during your visit, but of course we have never had a group upset about this, the overall experience allowing them to both learn and play in one of the most sought after entertainment venues in America.
