Do you have a Disney enthusiast in your family? For me, planning trips to Disney World is one of the best parts of the process! In this course, students will learn the basics of planning a trip to Disney World, with an academic twist!

Class Experience

Beginner Level
10 lessons//5 Weeks
 Week 1
Lesson 1
Introductions & Transportation
Get to know your classmates before diving right in! Explore the options available to getting to Orlando, learn how to compare & contrast choices on graphic organizers, and practice booking online.
Lesson 2
Packing Planning
What to wear! We research the weather, activities, and opportunities to get dressy before creating organized lists of what to pack. Don't forget the sunscreen and phone chargers!
 Week 2
Lesson 3
Time to Fly!
Airports can be overwhelming and confusing. We'll discuss the typical airport experience, role play conversations that we might need to have along the way, and pack the perfect carry-on bag to keep us entertained for those hours flying.
Lesson 4
Picking Tickets
With a bunch of ticket options for Disney, which do we pick? We'll create comparing and contrasting paragraphs that will help decide which option is best for our families, and start creating a schedule on which parks we'll hit during our vaycay!
 Week 3
Lesson 5
Where to Stay?
Do you want to go high class luxury? Cheap and cheerful? Or somewhere in the middle? We'll explore which options are available for Disney, both on and off property, and make a decision based on the trip of our dreams.
Lesson 6
Rides, Wait Times, and Down Time
Worst part about Disneyworld? All that waiting! We'll discuss coping strategies for when we're stuck in 2hr ride lines. We'll also create a mini-trip schedule, making sure we use those time management skills to get in all the action we're hoping for.
 Week 4
Lesson 7
Scary Rides & How They Make Me Feel
Hate rides that drop? Dark rides make you feel anxious? Not so sure about It's A Small World? This class, we'll create narrative pieces about why certain rides make us feel the way they do - both the fun, and the not-so-fun.
Lesson 8
Animal Kingdom Exploration
Let's go on a virtual trip to Animal Kingdom! We'll identify which sections go with which exhibits, learn about the conservation work AK has, and find some cool snack stops along the way.
 Week 5
Lesson 9
Water Park Compare & Contrast
Grab those goggles because we're hitting the slides! With two water parks at Disney World, we'll figure out which one appeals to us more, and make a park plan - including packing lists, menus, and rides.
Lesson 10
Saying Goodbye, Disney!
The after-vacation blues are a thing! For our last class, we'll talk about coping strategies to returning back to the real world, even when we're overtired, sunburned, but still missing The Mouse.
This class is taught in English.
