Welcome to Walt Disney World!
Inspired by the dreams of Walt Disney, this Orlando theme park complex has evolved into the world’s largest and most visited recreational resort. Dedicated to the entertainment and education of children, Walt Disney World offers Disney Performing Arts, a program for bands, orchestras, choirs, and dance teams that provides a showcase for your group’s hard work and talent with the performance of a lifetime in front of a Disney audience. The program combines performances, workshops, and of course access to the four famous parks: The Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Students will have the opportunity to perform at the Waterside Stage in Downtown Disney for an excited, engaged, and appreciative audience. During clinics and workshops, Walt Disney World cast members, many of whom work professionally in their field outside of Walt Disney World, provide hands-on instruction. Songs or medleys from popular Disney films are practiced, performed and recorded in one of the Walt Disney World recording studios, providing a professional and exciting experience for group members.

Its six “lands”: Main Street USA; Adventureland; Liberty Square; Frontierland; Fantasyland; and Tomorrowland, still make up today’s park. New rides and attractions are added often in addition to the most popular that remain and continue to be enjoyed, such as Space Mountain and Pirates of the Caribbean. Visitors throughout the park also have the opportunity to meet and greet their favorite Disney characters, adding to the magic of the park.
EPCOT is an acronym for Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow. It consists of Future World and the World Showcase and is dedicated to international culture and technological innovation. Future World contains multiple pavilions, all of which explore innovative aspects and applications of technology which are demonstrated through attractions such as Spaceship Earth, Innoventions, Test Track and Mission: Space. The World Showcase highlights eleven countries: Mexico, Norway, China, Germany, Italy, USA, Japan, Morocco, France, United Kingdom and Canada. Each country’s pavilion is staffed by native citizens as part of Disney’s Cultural Representative Program and visitors can get a glimpse of culture and cuisine from around the world.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios is themed on Old Hollywood from the 1930s and 1940s. The park is divided into six areas: Hollywood Boulevard; Echo Lake; Streets of America; Animation Courtyard; Pixar Place; and Sunset Boulevard, with each area focusing on a different aspect of show business, from merchandise and movie sets, to stunt shows and the development process of an animated character. Thrill rides and live entertainment complete this park making it a must see on your Disney adventure.
Animal Kingdom is Walt Disney World’s newest park. A combination of theme park and zoo, it is focused on conservation and education and sits on 500 acres of exotic landscape.
