Rehearse in the morning, then head to the parks. Visit Magic Kingdom and catch the Dream Along With Mickey stage show. Space Mountain, Splash Mountain and It's A Small World are must-sees. Join the fun during Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! Street Party held in front of Cinderella's Castle. DX will hold a late afternoon/early evening rehearsal to finish up formations. From there, head back out to the Magic Kingdom for a fireworks extravaganza at the end of the night.
DAY 3: THURSDAY
Start the morning with rehearsal then catch the bus to Hollywood Studios. Be sure to block out 3PM for Pixar Pals Countdown to Fun! Hook up with Team DX early evening for a private dinner held at Hollywood Studios. DX guests will enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal while watching the almost impossible show to get into, Fantasmic!; one of Disney's most famous attractions. After the show, DX guests will enjoy a yummy dessert and then be mixed into line for the amazing Rock N Rollercoaster finishing up the evening. Other must sees include Tower of Terror and Beauty and the Best Live! End the evening with the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights on the Streets of America featuring millions of glittering lights perfectly synchronized to holiday music. Some nights, if you truly believe in holiday magic, the show is capped off with an enchanted flurry of snow.
DAY 4: FRIDAY
Today's the big day. Board the bus and head backstage for your final rehearsal and special performance in front of a live Disney crowd. When finished, change out of your costume and head to Animal Kingdom. Enjoy some of DX favorites such as Expedition Everest, Kilimanjaro Safari, Festival of the Lion King, Kalie River Rapids and It's Tough To Be A Bug.
DAY 5: SATURDAY
Meet Mickey, Lilo, Stitch and Pluto during our fond-farewell family style character breakfast at 'Ohana. Grab the monorail to Epcot and travel around the world. Be sure to pick up your official passport and get stamped at each country you visit. Soarin', Test Track and Mission: SPACE are attractions you won't want to miss. Behold spectacular displays of artistry in China watching the Jeweled Dragon Acrobats or grab a slice of pizza and enjoy phenomenal juggling skills from Sergio the Italian Clown Juggler in Italy. Book a late flight out so you can enjoy the day at the parks. Come evening, we must say "Adios Amigos". Safe travels home.
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. DX has 12 years of touring at Disney and we have found the itinerary provided works well to avoid crowds, etc. However, our itinerary is geared for one park a day. The DX staff typically will hop parks. If you need any help, just shout.

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 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.

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!
