Florida Fun-raising Festival Disney Information


Festival Disney

Achieve performance excellence at our all-Disney-produced competitive music festival. When you own the Disney stage, you own the world. Join Festival Disney and give your talented ensemble the chance to compete with other instrumental, vocal and auxiliary ensembles from schools across the country. Directors can choose non-competitive adjudication options for their performance ensembles. And even if your ensemble chooses not to compete against other ensembles, the up-tempo environment and adjudication process is sure to light the flame to compete against your last performance.

Throughout select weekends in the spring, this educational festival experience gives students the chance to perform at the magical Walt Disney World® Resort. Performance venues have been carefully selected to provide an excellent experience for all participants. Ensembles are also encouraged to meet fellow students and attend performances of other ensembles.

Festival Disney is open to concert bands, jazz ensembles, marching (parade) bands, orchestras, vocal ensembles, show choirs and auxiliary units. And after your ensemble has spruced up their performance skills and gained a competitive edge, they get the opportunity to explore the magic of Walt Disney World® Theme Parks!

Where: There are two main venues in which Festival Disney takes place. The first is the Premiere Theater at the end of San Francisco Street in the Backlot of Disney's Hollywood Studios™. The second is located in Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort Performance Hall.
