Have you ever noticed groups of guests walking through the vegetation while your boat sailed through the greenhouse? This new program for kids sounds just like the “Behind the Seeds” tour that I’ve just described. This version lets the kids do the exploring all on their own though!
Groups of 10 or more children are invited to enroll for the program that is set to launch in 2019…but if your little ones just can’t wait until then to experience a Disney Youth Education Program at a Disney Park, there is a whole slew of offerings currently available for your group at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland to choose from.
(Ages elementary-middle school)- “In Everyday Chemistry, science is demystified as participants discover that everything they hear, see, smell, taste and touch involves chemistry and chemicals.
