Universal Studies Education Programs are the perfect opportunity to take students’ lessons beyond the classroom limits. Here’s our lesson on how to create an A+ field trip for your students:
Select the Subject
Get a head start by exploring all of our programs on the Youth Programs website. Our programs align with national standards while providing career-based lessons. From STEAM, to Storytelling, to Special F/X Tours– there are educational programs spanning every subject!
Plan Ahead: Apply ASAP
Don’t be tardy when submitting your application! Our program slots fill up fast so once you’ve picked your Universal Studies program; you will want to complete an application as soon as possible. It can take 5 – 7 business days to receive your confirmation email from the Universal Studies Team.
Supplies for Success
Once you’ve received your confirmation, you will want to select your tickets and complete a Youth Group Ticket Order Form. By participating in a program, your group will qualify for a special Youth Group rate! We also recommend paying for your tickets and program at least two (2) weeks in advance so they can be mailed to you. Having your tickets ahead of time helps your group get to their program faster by avoiding ticketing lines, which means more time enjoying the parks and their program.
Study the Essentials
Your confirmation email will contain a Teacher Toolkit* with additional resources for you and your students. While it is not required, we recommend familiarizing your group with the materials to prepare for the lesson and in-park activities.
At least two (2) weeks from your program date, an Event Manager will provide a detailed itinerary for your program date and will assist you with your arrival/departure questions.
Extra Credit – Enhance Your Experience
Make the most of your trip by adding the following to your trip:
- Youth Dining Card – The perfect way to lock in great prices for great food at numerous dining locations throughout Universal Orlando Theme Parks
- Universal Express™ Pass – Skip the regular lines at most of your favorite rides and attractions
- On-Site Hotels – With an array of hotels on property, our team can find the hotel that meets your groups’ needs while you enjoy the exclusive theme park benefits! Call 1-800-YOUTH15 for more information.
Time to Pack Up and Go Beyond the Classroom!
As your program date approaches you will want to be sure your group has secured their travel arrangements, understands the arrival instructions you received from your event manager, and that you have your tickets ahead of time to get into your program with ease.
Now that you’ve planned and prepared by doing all the items above, your class is ready to participate in a Universal Studies Educational Program all while enjoying a once in a lifetime experience at Universal Orlando Resort!
