It’s here! The 8th Annual Ultimate Field Trip to Walt Disney World Resort is finally here! If you read this Magical Blogorail post, you know this is one of my family’s Disney traditions. The experience that sparked all my Disney passion actually began in 2004 when Carol Beth Scott and her family traveled to The Most Magical Place on Earth. They had such an amazing time they founded 3D Travel Company to enable other families to find that same joy.
The Scotts organized The Ultimate Field Trip (UFT) in 2005 as a way for homeschoolers across the country to gather and learn while they play onsite at Walt Disney World. The event has grown from its humble beginnings of 18 travelers Inaugural UFT attendees to several hundred participating families this year! 3D Travel is now an Earmarked Agency and continues to grow.
What do we do at UFT? Homeschoolers from all over the United States arrive at Walt Disney World during Labor Day week. (Some participants stay an additional week, but the group events take place during the first week.) All gatherings are optional. However, you probably don’t want to miss any, since they really highlight the learning possibilities. It’s vacation, sure, but isn’t it great when the kids take away more than a memory?
Here’s what’s going on this week:
Monday: Meet-n-greet and get your goody bags. Hang out with Hidden Mickeys author Steven Barrett and his sweet wife Vickie.
Tuesday: View Epcot’s IllumiNations.
Wednesday: Scavenger Hunt at Magic Kingdom; chill out with Dole Whip.
Thursday: UFT educational experience open day
Friday: UFT educational experience open day
Saturday: UFT educational experience open day
Good times, giveaways and great new friends!
