If you have ever dreamed of bringing your school or youth group to Disney for a vacation, there are several youth group sponsored activities the school may qualify to join. In order to participate, the group must include at least 10 members. The participants in the group are granted discounts on their accommodations and theme park tickets. Here are the current available activities:
1. Disney Magic Music Day – In order to take part in this opportunity, auditions must be performed. The students allowed to participate must be in either middle or high school.
