General Information

The REU Disney trip only occurs every other year.  The cost is $625 per person.  There is no longer any discount if you are an existing Disney season ticket holder - all attendees pay the full price.

The trip is first-come first-serve!  The sign-up form is below.  Once we fill the buses, we will make a waiting list.  The sooner you turn in the sign-up form and deposit, the better.

Student Sign-up form

We will be taking luxury charter buses for the trip.  At Disneyland, each participant will receive a 3-day park hopper pass.  They will also receive $15 in Disney meal vouchers each day.  We will be staying at the Embassy Suites in Santa Ana with 6 students per room.  Embassy Suites provides a full all-you-can-eat buffet each morning.

During the trip, there will be the following performances:

  • Marching band performance along Main Street Disney

  • Backstage Soundtrack Session for marching/concert band

  • Backstage Soundtrack Session for choir

  • Backstage Dance Workshop for color guard

Additional Park Hopper Tickets

Additional three-day Park Hopper tickets are available at a discounted rate of $235 each.  However, these tickets are only good for the period of the trip (Mar. 26-28).  They cannot be refunded once purchased.  Passes will be distributed at a later date once we receive them.

Purchases must be made by February 15!

Payments for tickets can be made by check (payable to Rodriguez Music Boosters) and dropped off in the Booster mailbox in the band room, along with the form (click here for form).  Please make sure to put 'Disney tickets' and student's name on the memo line.

Credit card payments can be made via the PayPal link below.  Please note that the payment will show a 'tax' on the receipt.  This is not a tax but is the recouping of the fees PayPal charges (2.35%) so that REU receives the full intended amount.

Note:  There is a slight difference in the payment breakdown in the PayPal vs. the printed form.  Don't be worried about this - the important part (and purpose) is to break up the total cost into smaller payments.  The only requirement is that the full $625 is paid by the end of January.
