The girls had an absolutely amazing time. They want to go on the DX Disney trip again. Their favorite parts were performing on stage, making new friends, Character Breakfast, Thanksgiving feast and the DX staff. Everyone was so personable and the entire trip well organized. We will return.

Do we have to follow the DX itinerary?

No. Feel free to make your own travel plans while at Disney. The DX itinerary is only a guideline for those who are new to Disney.

FAQ's

HOW LONG has DX been bringing families to Disney World?

This will be our 13th tour to Disney over Thanksgiving break. We've got it down. You can take our itinerary recommendations or create your own one-of-a-kind schedule. Remember, you receive a Park Hopper pass which allows you to visit any park on any day. Multiple parks if you wish. Explore Disney and create your own   Magic.

How does the Disney MAGICAL EXPRESS work?

Prior to your arrival at the Orlando Airport, your flight details are turned into DX. From there, DX will be in contact with Disney regarding your arrival and departure plans. Disney will schedule you for their elite Magical Express and issue you baggage claim tickets for your luggage. DX will mail you the baggage tags prior to your departure. All you need to do is place them on your luggage and you're good to go. Disney takes care of the rest. 

How much time do we PRACTICE?

You will have a practice on Tuesday evening at 6PM sharp. We will run through the routine as a group and see how well everyone knows the material. From there we will begin incorporating   transitions and formation changes. Wednesday we gather twice, once in the morning and once late afternoon/early evening. Then again on Thursday morning to finish up perfecting the routine. Friday is the big day. We meet in the morning and head backstage for our final rehearsal and performance. Rehearsals are scheduled early so dancers and families can enjoy the parks on their own!

How does the Disney TRANSPORTATION work?

It's wonderful! You literally go out in front of your hotel and jump on a bus to   whichever park you want. You can also take advantage of the ferries, park buses and monorail system. Ask the concierge at the hotel what is the best way to get to your final destination. It's easy and simple. If you do decide to drive yourself, Disney does   charge for parking.

DisneyQuest

DisneyQuest is a one-of-a-kind gaming experience in the Downtown Disney area. Discover five floors fueled by electronic Disney   innovation and imagination, including virtual reality, 3D encounters and classic video games from the past. Don't miss these plus many more cool interactive experiences.

Pirates of the Caribbean - Battle for Buccaneer Gold  ...  Inhibit a world where blade meets blade, booming with swashbuckling action. Steer your pirate's ship, fire cannons at marauding   buccaneers and race for the gold!

Virtual Jungle Cruise  ...  Plunge down a prehistoric river on a raft in the Dinosaur Age. Try desperately to avoid dangerous obstacles in the running rapids. With a touch of 4-D, you may even get splashed!

CyberSpace Mountain  ...  Design   your own roller coaster on a computer, with a special assistant from Bill Nye   the Science Guy.   Make it as scary as you want.   When you're done, jump in a simulator and ride your own creation in full   360* motion - if you dare!

Buzz Lightyear's Astroblasters  ...  Pilot your   own futuristic bumper car "Astroblaster". The only problem is   you're in a battle and always   under attack! So you must   fight back by scooping up "asteroids", loading them into your   blaster and   firing away at the other cars.   It's an asteroid-blasting game unlike any other!

Animation Academy  ...  Be a   Disney animator! An instructor takes you through the process of drawing a   Disney character step by    step. You'll delight yourself   when you see what you are capable of creating!

Mighty Ducks Pinball Slam  ...  Hip check   your friends in a life sized Mighty Ducks pinball game.

Ride the Comix  ...  Battle   supervillians as you fly through a virtual reality comic book world!

Aladdin's Magic Carpet Ride  ...  Fly   through the alleys and streets of Agrabah on a hunt to find the magic lamp   and save the Genie!

Blizzard Beach

Blizzard Beach features one of the world's tallest and fastest free-falling waterslides, as well as slides and rides for the whole family - like a kid-sized, snow-castle fountain play area with scaled-down versions of the more thrilling attractions.

It's easy to be cool while having fun in the sun. While the park looks like a frosty ski resort - complete with a functioning chair lift, it's actually an action-packed water wonderland with exciting watersides and attractions for the whole family.

Race on Toboggan Racers, float down Cross County Creek, plunge down raft rides like Runoff Rapids, discover the Tike's Peak children's play area, play in a one-acre wave pool and experience the thrill of one of the tallest and fastest waterslides in the country, Summit Plummet! See all of the exciting attractions at Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park!
