I just got back from a four day high school band trip last night. I’m not going to do a detailed trip report but I wanted to share some of it. We did four parks in three days and went open to close every day. I haven’t done Disney like that in years but it was worth it.
We left Monday evening and drove through arriving on Orlando about 3 pm the following afternoon. We had an hour or so to get cleaned up and headed out to Downtown Disney for the evening. We shopped until our 8:45 reservation at Planet Hollywood. The kids enjoyed the atmosphere and dinner was good. It’s nothing fancy but after a long bus ride with very little sleep it hit the spot.
The following day was the a big day for the kids, they were playing at Downtown Disney and had a private workshop with some disney CMs. We started out at Epcot but we only had 2 hours before we had to leave to get ready to play. We did Soarin’ a couple of times, Living with the Land, and had a snack for lunch then met up with everyone else to head out.
The kids did an awesome job playing, they couldn’t have done better. They started early to beat the incoming rain and just as we loaded the bus it started to rain. The kids changed back to their park clothes and we headed back to Epcot. We had 3 hours before the clinic started and way too much to do. It started pouring shortly after we arrived and kept raining. We met up with the other groups at about 5:00 and the kids left for the clinic through a gate in Italy.
Myself and three other adults had booked an ADR at Flying Fish a few months back The other adults and three girls not going to the clinic walked with us to the Boardwalk for dinner at ESPN. We had a delicious dinner at Flying Fish. We had two excellent servers who made our dinner even better. After dinner we met up with the band and director and enjoyed illumiNations from Italy.
After illumiNations we took the kids back the the hotel for some pool time. After getting the girls rooms settled in for the night I finally fell into bed at about 1 am.
