CCIS, Inc., a Butler, PA-based group travel planning firm specializing in student group travel, has been named a Preferred Youth Travel Planner by The Walt Disney Company for 2017-18. Awarded to approximately 30 companies worldwide, the selection is based on a company’s work with Disney Youth Programs. It is the 3rd time since 2013-14 that CCIS has received this distinction.
Disney Youth Programs offers student groups performance, education, field trip and celebration opportunities at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort. Programs are available to schools and student groups ranging from kindergarten to college.
Since 1955 Disney Performing Arts has provided performance opportunities to give students a chance to play, sing, and dance in the spotlight. In Disney workshops, students can hone their skills under the guidance of an entertainment professional. Festival Disney offers band, orchestra, and choral ensembles the chance to compete in a Disney-produced music festival. Areas of interest include instrumental, vocal, dance, theatre, special events, competitions, and festivals.
In addition to the many Arts opportunities available to groups, Disney Youth Education Series allows students to see how the concepts they are learning in the classroom create the magic at Disney Parks. From physics to cultural studies to leadership, each unique program emphasizes the importance of teamwork and critical thinking skills while giving students a one-of-a-kind learning experience that blends the magic of Disney with key educational content.
