The Sycamore HS Marching Band and Orchestra are going to Walt Disney World!
The Sycamore High School Marching Band and Orchestra will be returning to Walt Disney World in Orlando Florida in 2016! Our students will once again get the opportunity to perform for thousands of people, attend workshops and make magical memories that will last a lifetime! Our trip is only 10 months off, November 9 through 13, 2016 and we wanted to let everyone know so they can begin planning for this tremendous opportunity. We have been hard at work to insure another incredible experience for everyone. Our past experiences with Disney have been great and our performances have been in front of enormous crowds. This optional 2016 trip will be similar to those of the past and not only will it be fun, it will include inspiring performances and workshops for the students!
The cost for this year’s trip will be $660 per person. This is an increase from the 2014 trip’s cost but the Sycamore Band & Orchestra Boosters have graciously agreed to help keep the costs down for the trip by paying any costs that will be incurred over the $660 per person cost. The trip cost will include motorcoach transportation, hotel (4 per room for students and 2 per room for chaperones), Park Passes, Disney Workshop, all meals, souvenir gift, hotel security and more. The Sycamore Band and Orchestra Boosters “SBOB” would greatly appreciate it if you can pay the entire amount as soon as possible. We understand however that everyone might not be able to do so, therefore, you have the option of the following payment plan.
Payment #1 $250 May 2nd (entire amount is refundable)
Payment #2 $200 August 15th (entire amount is refundable)
Payment #3 $210 September 15th (non-refundable after September 1, 2016)
Total $660 entire amount is refundable until SEPTEMBER 1, 2016
WHY COLLECT MONEY SO EARLY?
Based on our trip dates, SBOB will be required to make several payments, one in May, August and September. Refunds can be made until September 1, 2016. Refunds must be requested in writing and received by Lonnie Stover, Music Department Supervisor, by September 1, 2016.
SPACE IS LIMITED
We will be basing our trip count on the number of people who have made the first payment by May 2nd. Waiting could prevent your Son/Daughter from attending. We must know how many people will be going on the trip in order to insure we have the correct number of rooms and busses. Space may not be available for students and chaperones wanting to go on the trip after the May 2nd Payment #1 deadline. ($250.00 Due May 2, 2016)
