The holidays will soon be upon us and that means that we are just one Santa visit away from the 15th annual Festival Disney music competition at Walt Disney World Resort!

If you’re still looking for the perfect gift for the young performers in your life, why not surprise them with an experience where they can take their skills from minor to major? With a feedback session from nationally-recognized collegiate adjudicators and a splashy awards ceremony, Festival Disney is the gift that keeps on giving as performers create lifelong memories with ensembles from around the globe.

Who is eligible to receive this gift of grandeur? Middle and high school concert bands, jazz ensembles, orchestras, vocal ensembles or show choirs can participate for the chance to earn “Best in Class,” as well as Gold, Silver and Bronze awards for their pitch-perfect performance.

There really is no better way to surprise your aspiring performers and show that you appreciate them this holiday season than with an experience that they will cherish for a lifetime. After getting their awards, they can celebrate performance excellence with the latest experiences, creating the perfect melody! From Mickey & Minnie’s Surprise Celebration at Magic Kingdom Park to The Incredibles and Pixar pals taking over Disney’s Hollywood Studios, now more than ever, Walt Disney World Resort is the place to celebrate!

So, trade in those stuffed stockings for symphonic studies when Festival Disney takes centerstage on select weekends throughout March, April and May with the best availability in early March and May.
