Can I stay at the same hotel?
Yes. You may make reservations on your own for the hotel the band is staying in. Unfortunately you will not receive any special rates at the hotel by mentioning you are with the AW Band. Please realize that several aspects of the trip (breakfasts, early admission to Animal Kingdom, Thanksgiving Buffet, etc.) will only be available to the participating band members, chaperones, and band fans who have purchased the trip through Noteworthy Tours.
Can I take my child away from the band?
No. For liability reasons, students need to remain with the band at all times. You may meet up with your son or daughter at the parks, but he/she may not leave the park with you. It is important to realize that your son or daughter will be expected to follow the same rules as other students while on the trip. It is unacceptable for students whose parents are going to be afforded special privileges, including but not limited to, attending other events not included in the itinerary, staying out past curfew, having food brought in after curfew, or traveling away from the band with their parents.
