Walt Disney World (Florida)
April 4-6, 2019
As you have probably heard, 2019 is a South River Music Disney year!! Mickey and all of his friends are calling us and we must go!
And – for the first time at South River – we have cancelled the horrible 18 hour bus ride to Orlando! This year, the South River Seahawks will spread our wings and fly to Orlando!
Due to its expense, South River only takes Disney trips once every 4 years. This gives every class a Disney trip without the extra expense for families too often. Of course, what this means is that if your child is a current South River student, this will be their only chance to participate in a Disney trip. Join us!
The trip will be held April 4-6, 2019 with musical performances in a Disney park or Downtown Disney and an on stage workshop with a Disney professional – plus 3 full days in the parks!
Our students and chaperones will depart from BWI airport very early in the morning on Thursday, April 4th to arrive in Orlando in time for a full day of fun in the park. We will return to BWI late Saturday night, April 6th. Exact times will be announced as trip plans are finalized.
