Students from three Illinois high schools packed their bags for a fun-filled and educational trip to Walt Disney World Resort where they entertained thousands of guests with their performances at Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Disney Springs on Dec. 27-29.

Marching bands from Round Lake High School in Round Lake, William Fremd High School in Palatine, and Fenton High School in Bensenville performed at Walt Disney World Resort. The school bands, along with their directors, paraded down iconic Main Street U.S.A. during the "Mickey's Once Upon A Christmastime" preparade, with all its holiday decor, playing festive songs that captured the holiday spirit on Dec. 29. The next day, the Round Lake High School "Panther Voices" put on a dynamic show at Disney Springs, showcasing its talents to Disney guests from around the world. The Fenton High School Choir stepped into the spotlight at America Gardens Theatre at Epcot, performing as part of a traditional mass choir joined by a 50-piece live orchestra along with Jodi Benson, the voice of Ariel in "The Little Mermaid," narrating the story of Christmas during the Candlelight Precession on Dec. 27.

Furthermore, some of the schools experienced an educational and mentoring program through Disney Performing Arts workshops, designed to inspire them to dream big and discover a world of possibilities that will help them prepare for their future. These tailored lessons allowed the students to immerse themselves in Disney movie magic, rehearsing the scores of classic films in workshops such as "You're Instrumental" and "Disney Sings," or to learn real-world audition techniques and choreography that puts them in the spotlight of their own Disney show through dance and theater showcases.
