Student travel groups can achieve performance excellence in the only all-Disney produced competitive music festival. When student performance groups excite international audiences on the Disney stage, they may feel as if they own the world. Bring your student travel group to Disney World in Orlando, for a Festival Disney performance.

Festival Disney provides a venue for talented student performers who have the chance to compete with the finest instrumental, choral, and other types of performance groups from schools across the United States. It is the highest caliber festival in Orlando. No auditions are necessary. The student travel group must simply fill out an application. One caution: do not be fooled by imitators giving a group the impression they are a Walt Disney festival. If it does not say Festival Disney, it is not the official adjudicated music festival of Disney World.

When is Festival Disney?

Festival Disney is scheduled on Fridays and Saturdays and some Thursdays at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando Florida. Student travel groups will perform as scheduled at Disney�s Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa, Downtown Disney Pleasure Island or Disney's Hollywood Studios.

What Types of Ensembles May Participate?

For student groups who want to perform but are not ready to be judged, their music directors will be able to select a non-competitive adjudication option for Festival Disney. Participation is open to concert bands, jazz ensembles, marching bands, orchestras, choral ensembles, show choirs and auxiliary units.

Does Festival Disney Include Admission to Walt Disney World?

There are usually some great package deals available for student travel to Orlando Florida. Educational Travel Consultants offers student performance groups economic packages that include hotel quad accommodations near Walt Disney World and admission to the park for four or five days. In addition to participating in Festival Disney, student travel groups tour Epcot, Magic Kingdom, Disney MGM Studios or Disney�s Animal Kingdom.

How are Festival Disney Participants Judged?

The adjudicated music festival at Disney includes a highly professional approach to judging competing student performance groups. The panel of adjudicators will provide the performance groups with feedback. If the musical director chooses, the group may participate in an Educational Clinic. Here the feedback is more in depth and judges provide critiques and suggestions on how to improve the level of performance.

Before or after a Festival Disney performance, groups may also be encouraged to take the opportunity to watch their peers perform. Observing other ensembles perform is also a great way to learn new techniques, or gain new ideas to incorporate in a school or public performance.

Festival Disney Awards Ceremony

Once the performances have been judged, the participants in Festival Disney take part in a grand Festival Disney Awards Ceremony. Each performance classification will be awarded a �Best in Class.� Even if student performers do not win a Best in Class in their selected category, they still return home with a Festival Disney Medal and a group photograph to commemorate the competition.

All of these aspects combine to make Festival Disney participation for student performance groups an educational experience that is high caliber and high energy.
