Headed for the Magic Kingdom?

Gateway can help

NEW HAVEN - Gateway Community College will offer a new Walt Disney World 101 class on four consecutive Thursdays beginning July 8.

The course is designed for those planning a trip to the Magic Kingdom and is especially suited for families with young children, senior citizens or those with physical challenges who need the inside scoop on the best way to navigate the theme parks, the college said in a statement.

With "so much to do and see, advanced preparation can make all the difference. Emphasis is placed on ways to navigate the parks, find the best restaurants for your needs, use available transportation systems, what to expect when you get there and how to save money," the statement said.

Each session covers a different topic beginning with an overview of the parks, transportation systems, dining options and resorts on July 8; Disney Hollywood Studios and Disney Animal Kingdom on July 15; Epcot Center on July 22, and the Magic Kingdom on July 29, the statement said.

The courses are presented by Disney Institute graduate, Tom Violante, who has made more than 20 visits to Walt Disney World.

All four classes run from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at a cost of $25 for each section, with a $20 discount for those who register for all four sections.

To register, contact the Gateway Community College office of Continuing Education at (203) 285-2082 or email mfraser@gwcc.commnet.edu.

Gateway Community College serves more than 11,000 credit and non-credit students each year, offering more than 90 associate degree and certificate programs, the statement said.

GCC is located on two campuses: At 60 Sargent Drive on Long Wharf in New Haven and at 88 Bassett Road in North Haven.

Work began this fall on a new state-of-the art campus in downtown New Haven, which is slated to open in 2012.
