Youth Education Series (Y.E.S.)

Youth Education Series (Y.E.S.) The Y.E.S. programs for youth groups began in 1990 with one program at Disney-MGM Studios—Lights, Camera, Education. From there it grew into almost two dozen programs in all four Walt Disney World parks. Children from kindergarten to 12th grade participate in two to three-and-a-half hour programs taught by professional Disney facillitators using the resources of the Resort and covering topics in the arts and humanities, life management, and physical and natural sciences, with most programs aligned with state and national educational standards. Participants see how principles that they are learning in their classrooms are making exciting things happen every day in and around the Walt Disney World Resort. Y.E.S. programs were also begun at the Disneyland Resort in October 2006, and at Hong Kong Disneyland in January 2007.
