The movie was filmed without permission at Disneyworld. Moore and a small group of actors and crew went undercover as tourists for just under a month in order to film the movie. Scripts and all shooting directions were kept on their iPhones so that “when actors and crew were looking down between takes, passersby just thought they were glancing at their messages.” The actors wore the same clothes every day, but park employees seemed unsuspecting—perhaps, Moore has noted, because there are so many people who come and go through the park every day, taking pictures and recording home movies constantly. The kind of camera Moore’s crew used, a Canon 5D DSLR camera, while pricey, is small and inconspicuous. Smart phones and hidden digital recorders placed on the actors’ bodies recorded the sound.

The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, where Disney representative were heard saying that "Escape From Tomorrow" will never be released anywhere. But surprisingly, the studio has yet to sue. In fact, the film has already been acquired for distribution and was released on October 11th.

Agreed. Per several of the grade school teachers at my sons school, almost the whole first half of a school year is dedicated to reteaching what was learned the second half of the previous year due to losing that knowledge during the summer break. "If you don't use it, you'll lose it" truly applies.
I'd like to see something to the effect of several weeks on, one or two weeks off throughout the entire 12 months - something that'll equals to around the same amount of school days kids have today. If that were to happen, maybe we wouldn't need to increase the daily school hours.
