DL with band in March!! UPDATE: Just back! Mini TR 3/21 16 major rides in a day

Today in band class we got the official "itinerary" for our short DL/So. Cal trip in March!

We're gonna be in So. Cal for only 2 days (Friday and Saturday), but all day Saturday will be at DL!! It's March 20th, which will hopefully be a good time to go. I don't know yet what time we're getting to the park, but we're defintiely staying until midnight! (then riding back on a bus that overnight)

I'm so excited. My friends are already asking me to be their tour guide lol.

Oh how fun! My daughter's band went to DL all the way from Washington State last April. We had so much fun and my daughter loved marching down Main Street! I know you guys will have a blast!

No, not this time. 4 years ago they did, but our band director is giving us the whole day this year for rides. We are doing some kind of festival at a nearby college that has some DL package. It's a festival thing with judging and everything, and then there will be an awards ceremony at DL that night.

I love GA. I go there like 30 times a year because I've gotten a season pass for the past 9 years. I went there in 6th grade for band, which was fun.

Unfortunately, since we're not like a "marching" band, we won't be doing that. But that would be totall cool to be in a DL parade or just marching down M:S.

I'm limiting my group to 7 other people because 8 is an ideal # for DL park touring. I'm going to make sure that they all have the best day ever and experience as much as possible in one day.

My trip is getting closer so I thought I'd revive this. I made and printed out surveys for the 7 other people in my group to see what they want to ride and see so that I don't waste their day riding things that none of them want to ride. I'm pretty proud of my survey. It's very detailed and it should give me a good idea of how to plan the day.

I did get confirmation that we're getting park hoppers, so at 10 we're heading over to TSMM and Screamin!!

Since I will want to just have fun, I probably won't do an intensive picture TR, but I'll take a few pics and have a full written report on how our day went. 54 days and counting!!

Dh and I did the band trip to Disney a few times. It was fun! I remember standing in line for Splash Mountain for 3 hours. Then we hung about at the newly opened toontown because we thought we didn't have much time, then found out there was a time change.

When I was with DS13 and his middle school jazz band last May we paid I think what was the regular price for a one day DL ticket and then when we arrived at the band competition there was a lady giving out the tickets who had park hoppers for only $10 more. So we did that. FYI. Have fun!

Ah, the days before FP. I am going to guarantee that my group does not wait in a 3 hour line for anything!

I think the package with the festival was inexpensive enough that we "upgraded" to hoppers already. The problem with the package thing is that I'm pretty sure we're staying way offsite, so bus to the park in the morning??? We'll see. Also on the park hopper thing, one of our band directors really likes DLR too and was begging for hoppers to go ride his favorite ride, California Screamin!

Ahh. Good old band days. Best time of my hs life. Marched in DL every year of middle school and hs. Have fun. My husbands middle school marching band is marching this Sunday. It is so fun to watch how excited they are to perform.
Enjoy your trip.

Aloha! We'll be doing the same thing with DD's middle school band/choir in May (mother's day weekend). DD is in the choir only. I think they said that the actual performance is at a local school with the award presentation at the Big Thunder Mtn. picnic area. Can't wait!

Oh that's great!! How fun for you. My son is in marching band with Pixie Wings daughter and he has gone to GA with the band for the last two years with the marching band. He would prefer Disneyland.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

2 things of bad news:

1. DCA's park hours are totally switching up on me! Now the park is opening at 9 instead of 10! I wanted to get to DCA's opening after grabbing a couple FP, but it's not going to be like that I guess.

2. It turns out that we are actually performing in the festival thing on Saturday morning at 8. This means, after playing and giving people time to change and actually boarding the buses and getting there, it could be like 10AM or later! This is seriously screwing up my "plan" and it will most likely limit the amount of stuff that we get done. But I just have to deal with it and figure out a way to get around....

Frustrating...
