Optional Sunday Activities
Sunday is a perfect day for an optional experience while at Disney. Learning 2017 has partnered to create a Golf Tournament or a Behind The Scenes Tour for our participants during the morning or afternoon. Join one of these cool programs with other Learning 2017 participants and be back in time for the start of the event:
Learning 2017 Golf Tournament: 7:30am – Noon
Join us on Sunday, October 22nd for a morning of golf with your colleagues!

Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned pro, you will enjoy playing 18 holes and competing for a variety of prizes – large and small. Space is limited so be sure to reserve your spot early!
The golfing range is open at 7:30 with range balls available at no charge, followed by a “shotgun start” at 8:30am*. Cost is just $99 to participate and payment will be required prior to the event (we will contact you several weeks before the event to collect payment). Golf club rental is available for the discounted rate of $20 (or as a package for $40, including clubs, shoes and 2 sleeves of balls. Proper golf attire is required. To provide the best possible putting surfaces, Disney's Lake Buena Vista Golf Course is a non-metal spike facility. Golfers may wear shoes with metal spike alternatives, or tennis shoes. Denim jeans or shorts are not permitted.
