PS - sorry for posting over my own prior post, but your parents could open their own 529 plan account, in which they were the owners and your son was the benficiary.

And, unless the rules have been changed, they actually can accelerate up to 5 years of gifting to your son into one year, as long as they file the appropriate tax paperwork.

My MIL opened 529 accounts for each of her grandchildren.
