    Hi! Do you have any cool homeschool opportunities/experiences at Walt Disney World? I would love information on all things educational! My boys are 7, 12, & 15. Can you still have a meal with an imagineer?

    Hello, Lauren! Thank you for such a great question!

    I have been visiting the Walt Disney World Resort since the early 90s, when I was a child with my parents, and now enjoy visits with my wife and three boys. It wasn’t until I became a father that I realized and began to appreciate how our vacations can be filled with excitement and thrills but also incredibly educational. These newly discovered educational experiences also make me feel better about my kids missing a day or two of classes.

    Unfortunately, the Dine with an Imagineer experience is not currently being offered. I suggest you continue to check the Disney Parks Blog for updates as you approach the beginning of your vacation. Hakuna Matata, I have plenty of suggestions for you to experience and enjoy that will be equally fun and educational!

    EPCOT:

    • Kidcot Fun Stops will have you traveling around the world and learning about each country throughout the World Showcase. You can interact with Cast Members from each country/region and collect mementos with fun facts and activities. Pair Kidcot with sampling the native food and drinks; it can be fun, educational, and delicious!
    • Living with the Land is a slow boat ride that teaches Guests about the history of farming and how Disney horticulturalists cross-breed crops.
    • The Seas with Nemo & Friends is not only a great ride under the sea, but you can explore the aquarium when the ride is over. Don't forget the complimentary scavenger hunt book near the exit!

    Magic Kingdom:

    • The Hall of Presidents is a show featuring all 45 Presidents and educates Guests on the Constitution, the American Revolution, and the Civil War.
    • Liberty Square is one of Magic Kingdom's themed lands and is based on colonial America. Look for a replica of the Liberty Bell, and don’t forget to look down. The walking paths have a unique design feature you should ask a Cast Member about.
    • Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress will have you traveling through the 20th Century to learn about the evolution of technology.

    Hollywood Studios:

    • Walt Disney: One Man’s Dream includes a self-guided tour exploring the legacy of Walt Disney and concludes with a 15-minute documentary. History lesson, check!

    Animal Kingdom:

    • Conservation Station shows various animal habitats worldwide, a veterinary treatment room, and you can even watch Cast Members prepare meals for the animals.
    • Kilimanjaro Safaris is an absolute family favorite. This tour of the savanna will showcase some of the over 30 species of animals living in the Harambe Wildlife Reserve!

    There are plenty of educational opportunities when vacationing at Disney World; these examples only scratch the surface. If you have any additional questions or would like more recommendations, please ask, and I will be happy to help!
