Disney Tour 2020 – Final Few Reminders

  • Students will be loading the trailer after ME practice next Wednesday 2/12, so rehearsal might go a little longer that day


  • If you student has an A period – they need to go to their A period class on 2/13, then report to the instrumental music room afterwards.  If they don’t have an A period, they should just report to the instrumental music room on 2/13 no later than 8:45 AM.  All students on tour will be excused from classes from Period 2 for the rest of the day for 2/13 and all day on 2/14.


  • They are allowed a back pack and one small suitcase, plus their instrument.  Please make sure everything is labeled with your student’s name.


  •  Don’t forget- they need to pack their concert-watching clothes in their back pack, they won’t have time to pull out luggage in LA to change into concert clothes before the concert.

  • You have already paid $80 for meals for your student. This will be managed by the parent chaperones and cash will be handed out each day to ensure they save money to eat that day. Whatever they don’t spend for the day, they keep.  The $80 you already paid for meals is broken out below:
    • 2/13- bus ride lunch stop $10 (they will get cash from their chaperon)
    • 2/13 – dinner at Disney Hall $15 (the chaperones will pay this fee for your child- they don’t have to worry about this meal)
    • 2/14- buffet breakfast at the hotel (included in room cost)
    • 2/14- lunch – Subway sandwich (your student already placed their Subway order and this is already paid for)
    • 2/14- dinner at Disney parks $15 (they will get cash from their chaperone)
    • 2/15-buffet breakfast at the hotel (included in room cost)
    • 2/15 lunch at Disney parks $15 (they will get cash from their chaperone)
