As part of the educational offerings of Disney Youth Education Series (YES), 11 school groups from India will travel to the US to experience education Disney-style.

Students from Amritsar [Images], Phagwara, Jalandhar, New Delhi and Surat will make the trip to participate in programmes like Disney Production Arts and Sciences, which demonstrates the art of movie making from storyboarding to marketing a production and Disney Animation Magic where students learn the history of animation and the impact that Walt Disney had on the medium.
