Yes. We will be given a copy of the ticket with the ticket numbers approx. 30 days prior to the trip to be able to pre-arrange Fast Past tickets.
Yes. For ease in locating/identifying our student group while at the parks, they will all be asked to wear the same Tshirts daily. We will rotate the red parade shirt, 2018 Show shirt (Jesus Christ Super Star), and two included group shirts that will be distributed prior to the trip. They may wear what they choose for the trip down and the trip back.
Keep in mind – the trip down is a 24 hour bus trip, stopping just outside the parks on arrival to have breakfast and change. They will NOT be going to the hotel until the evening on the day of arrival. So, recommend packing a change of clothes (or at least the Tshirt to change), small toiletries and an over-jacket/sweatshirt for the bus trip.
Marching bibs, jackets, shoes, white socks, and Mickey Mouse Ears (provided) will be the uniform for their marching perfomance for ALL attendees.
There is wi-fi, but may be very slow or limited to a total usage for the trip.To prepare, your cellular carrier may offer a temporary upgrade to unlimited data that can be cancelled after the trip (prior experience has been shared that Verizon offers $10 for a week of unlimited data)
Yes, most should. However, suggest you correspond with your bank so they are aware that purchases may transpire out of state so that the charges do not seem fraudulent and they cut-off card use.
Visa gift cards can typically be used, however, some do not work in areas (like restaurants) where tip may be added or when the purchase does not equal the amount on the card, etc.Suggestion:Kroger has Disney Gift cards available in $15 increments (perfect for individual meals) and offer additional fuel points with purchase also.
No, bathing suits are not necessary, they will not have time (nor be allowed) to be swimming at the hotel.Each day, they will return to the hotel between 10:30 and 11:00 pm and no parks we are visiting include water park admission.
