WHAT TIME IS IT? Time for everyone to head Back To School. As summer winds down and school routines begin, those fun Disney experiences do not have to end. Have you ever thought about what it might be like to go to school at Disneyland? As mothers who love Disneyland, we created our own educational experiences, from science to theater, to money handling skills and even participated in some Disneyland homeschool days. We made learning in a different environment a fun experience which helped our kids enjoy the process of learning even more. Today, Disneyland offers excellent educational programs for students of all ages from Elementary School to College. Now is the time of year to start making your reservations for available classes and apply for Disney College programs.
