They traveled more than 950 miles from Farmington to take part in Disney Performing Arts. 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. Once selected, they are given the opportunity to perform at the resort for an international audience of theme park guests. Millions of performers have graced the stages of the Disney Parks in the more than 25-year history of the program.

Though the hotel welcomes its first guests on Monday, a few of its signature amenities wont be open until later this month. The BIndulgedSpa http://travelingepcot.tumblr.com/ will debut with four treatment rooms, including one for couple therapies, a hair salon, nail boutique, relaxation lounge, mens and womens locker rooms, and fitness center. A sampling of their aromatherapy scents offered a sense of the luxuriousness that guests will enjoy while being pampered there soon. AVEDA products are used throughout the hotel, including the guest room bathrooms. Also opening soon is American Q, an on-site BBQ restaurant created by Jeffrey Chodorow of China Grill Management specifically for the hotel to feature smoked meats, fish and poultry. At todays preview, a deceivingly simple dish of a deviled egg, dressed veggies, and strips of bacon brought incredibly bold flavors that immediately brought excitement toward the upcoming restaurant. Theres no doubt their chefs know how to cook well. The look of the restaurant was previewed via a mood board today. Downtown Disney is about a 10 minute walk away from B Resort but complimentary shuttles are available to take guests throughoutWalt Disney World. Dont B surprised if you leave this hotel talking in abbreviations as all staff are quick to B witty with plenty of puns.
