Megan & Kris give some tips on how to have an Educational Disneyland trip!
I would rather entertain and hope that people learned something than educate people and hope they were entertained. — Walt Disney
Having an Educational Disneyland Trip
Megan & Kris have three schools of thought when it comes to finding Education at Disneyland:
1. Education You Can Bring (In Line Education)
• Flash cards in line
• Drills on math concepts
• Bringing a book to read aloud while in line
• Have younger kids look for letters, colors, read clocks, etc.
2. Disney’s Educational Offerings:
• Animation Academy
• Sourdough Bread Factory
• Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln
• Redwood Creek Challenge Trail
3. Education You Can Find:
Here are some topics to get you started:
• Cartoons Then vs Now
• Cars Land & Route 66
• Grizzly Peak: National Parks
• Time Periods – Turn of the Century America
• Jungle Cruise – Discussion on Animals
• Frontierland – Early American Settlers
• Mark Twain River Boat – American History
• Tom Sawyers Island – Literature, Mark Twain
• New Orleans Square – Mardi Gras
• Tomorrowland – Space Travel, Technology
• Main Street Train Station – History on Steam Power and Trains
