We have big, POOH-SIZED news for you: The Ultimate Field Trip is returning to Walt Disney World Resort this fall!
The Ultimate Field Trip (UFT), created by Carol Beth Scott of 3D Travel Agency, began in 2005 as a way for homeschoolers across the country to gather and learn while they play onsite at Walt Disney World Resort. Over the years, the event grew from its humble beginnings of 18 inaugural UFT family attendees to several hundred participating families in 2013. For the past two years, UFT has been offered as part of a travel package for smaller groups or individual families, and now? Well, UFT is once again returning to the Most Magical Place on Earth, and it has been “plussed”–sprinkled with some extra pixie dust.
If you are a regular reader, you know UFT is one of my family’s Disney traditions. In fact, it’s the reason my family first traveled to Walt Disney World in 2006, and it is what sparked all our Disney passion. We participated in ’06, ’08, ’10, ’11, ’12, and ’13, with Magical Mouse Schoolhouse sponsoring several events from 2011-13 and providing goodies and giveaways. Magical Mouse Schoolhouse will again join our friends at 3D Travel Company this year…and we’re bringing along a new friend, Destinations in Florida!
What do we do at UFT?
At The Ultimate Field Trip, homeschoolers from all over the United States arrive at Walt Disney World during a specified week to learn while we play, to make magical memories, to meet new friends who share both our homeschooling and our Disney passions, and above all, to have fun! Maybe we will dine together, see a show or attraction, perhaps watch fireworks together, or even wear matching t-shirts. All gatherings are optional, of course; however, you probably don’t want to miss any!
