Learning Activities for School Aged Children at Walt Disney World

Posted on
Visiting Walt Disney World is, of course, a dream vacation for many families. Even among the numerous fun recreational experiences, though, there are educational activities that won't feel too much like homework yet will help teach, too.

Here are reader- and staff-generated suggestions for learning opportunities in the four theme parks at Walt Disney World. Some are simple enough for elementary-age kids while others might be more appropriate for middle- and high-school students.

2016 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival Mix It, Make It, Celebrate It!

Posted on
This year, the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival has transformed its Mixology program into a hands-on type of workshop that will have attendees learning how to make (not just mix) something. Sessions will teach you cake-decorating, pasta-making, garnishing... or yes, even mixology.
