Some of you might know about this already, but for those of you who don't Disney has a program called Youth Education Series, or Y.E.S. Program. You have to have at least 10 students to qualify (I think it's 10 - we always take more). Through this program you get a session (2-3 hours roughly) where a Disney instructor takes the kids through one of their offered educational options. This session is determined before you arrive and when you order your tickets. Many of these sessions go behind the scenes. While the time spent in this educational experience is very perky and Disney-fied, most of the series are pretty interesting. The great thing about this program is that the tickets are extremely low. We get a 4 day park hopper for cheap, cheap, cheap. Because the group we typically take is interested in performance (we never perform there by the way), we always choose the Behind the Scenes at La Nouba. Of course, you have to attend a Cirque performance prior to attending the session; that's an extra charge. But, like I said, our group is into the performance thing so we'd be going to La Nouba anyway. We are about to go this trip next week. It's a 7 day trip with 2 of those days travel days...we stay on property, 4 day hopper pass, La Nouba performance, The YES program session, and a resort mug...4 kids to a room and the cost per person was $600. Also, two of the park hoppers are complimentary for the chaperones. I'm tellin' ya, the YES program offering is a super deal. We let each person pay for their own meals.
