Is Disney Educational? Of Course It Is!

A couple years ago, there was a discussion about taking your child out of school for a trip to

Disney. 


Well, OF COURSE I would!!!!

But many people were saying that (teachers mainly) parents

would take their child out of school as a learning experience...and that it

didn't seem like a valid excuse. Then one mom actually said that Disney was NOT

a learning experience....

I have to 110% disatgree with Disney not being a learning

environment!

Let's see, what can a child learn about at Disney...

American history (hall of presidents)

World cultures and traditions (Epcot and other places)

All about animals, and their natural habitats (Animal

Kingdom)

Waiting turns (you KNOW how LONG those lines are!!!)

Science (Epcot, etc..)

Future technology (see above)

Economics (saving and spending their own money)

Map reading and navigation (those Disney maps are very

child-friendly)

Math (waiting times, money, etc...)

Reading (signs, ride names, etc...)

Marine biology (Disney Oceans and other items)

And that is just to name a few...

And I  came upon this a few years ago... www.disneyyouth.com

This holds so true! 

Don't forget the Disney College of Knowledge! There is also Disney Traditions, that every cast member goes though. 

You can also go through their College Program and choose areas of studies. Otherwise known, as Disney University! 

Here are some other things, I am already sure you knew, but, in case you didn't! 

Epcot is exploding

with science and social studies lessons! And Animal Kingdom is nothing more

than a zoo...schools take field trips to zoos all of the time. And if you have

slightly older kids there's lots to talk about at Hollywood Studios with the

history of filmaking (art). You could get really deep and talk about the

relationship of the economy and entertainment.

As for the Magic Kingdom...well, that's recess!  Seriously, even there there's the Hall of

Presidents & the Carousel of Progress. And yes, we do take our children to

all of those things.

There are SO many learning experiences at Disney, and the

park itself is SOOOO rich with history and stories, that I can no see how you

can NOT learn something at Disney!!!

 

And that concludes my presentation on why Disney is educational! :) There are more, and hopefully some of my friends will list them. But if you ever get ridiculed for taking your child out of school for a Disney vacation, use this in rebuttal!

Not to mention The Man himself, Mr. Walter Elias Disney was HUGE on education.
