2021 Disney Tour FAQ

College Park choir students are eligible to travel to Anaheim during spring break for our annual performance tour. The tour will feature performing in a concert of favorite Disney music on a professional theme park stage, a soundstage workshop led by a Disney clinician, an thrilling dinner at Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament, and some SoCal beach time!  Please check this page periodically for more complete information.

 Obviously, this trip will be contingent upon the pandemic situation essentially being over by April. Until we can have a better sense of whether or not a trip will be safe, we will not be collecting any payments or doing any fundraisers. So this year the tour is an aspirational goal, and we will be watching the pandemic situation to see if it will be feasible.

NOTE: This tour is an "independent trip" according to MDUSD board policy. It is entirely extra-curricular and optional, and therefore not categorized as a "field trip." The tour will be sponsored by the CPHS Choir Boosters, an independent non-profit corporation. Travelers will covered by private liability insurance, and not district liability policies.
