The student performers, under the direction of Linda Huck and Elliot Naes, greeted the guests of the park as they marched past Cinderella Castle on their way down Main Street, U.S.A. Their performance was truly in the Disney spirit as they performed several classics including Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious from Mary Poppins and Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah from Song of the South. The students helped to get the crowd excited before Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade, giving them an inside look at what it is like to be a professional in the entertainment industry. The group also participated in the Disney Performing Arts workshop Youre Instrumental, where the students learned how to get the most of their rehearsals and honed their sight-reading skills under the guidance of an experienced Disney Teaching Artist. This is the marching bands third visit to the resort with Disney Performing Arts, having first performed in 2008 at Magic Kingdom Park. Vocal, instrumental and dance ensembles from around the world apply to perform each year as a part of Disney Performing Arts at both the Disneyland Resort in California and the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.
