Student Rules/Regulations at Disneyland


Remember that you are representing our school and community during the entire time of this trip.  Not just the time when you are on stage.  Your personal behavior in public affects our entire group and is equally as important as the adjudicated part of the festival.  Mature behavior is the rule!


  • For the duration of the trip, make sure your chaperone always knows where you are. When you have Free time, You do not have to let your chaperone know every single ride that you are going, rather the general vicinity.  Students who are leaving with their families from Disneyland must check out with their chaperone AND Mr. Kirby.

  • Your Chaperone WILL need to stay with you for the first hour!

  • One person in your group MUST carry a working/charged cell phone at all times and return calls and/or texts within a reasonable amount of time.  PLEASE BE IN THE HABIT OF ALWAYS CHECKING YOUR PHONE.

  • You are required to meet (visually) your chaperone at the specific times indicated on the schedule and you are REQUIRED to attend the Workshop from 9:30am – 11:30am

  • You MUST stay with your group the entire time.  Group switching is generally not allowed, but may be approved by your chaperones AND Mr. Kirby!

  • Treat all chaperones and other adults with respect.  Any defiance or disrespect directed toward a chaperone or another adult will result in having to stay with Mr. Kirby or another adult at the Chaperone station for the rest of the time there.

  • You MUST wear your Paulding Band T-shirt (Green), ALL day at Disneyland.  School rules still apply regarding dress code, ie. Shorts.  However Hats will be allowed.

  • On the bus, remain seated.  No switching seats.  Stay out of the aisle, which must remain clear at all times.  No instruments, bags, legs or other body parts allowed in the aisle.  If a chaperone or the bus driver asks you to switch seats, comply graciously.  Don’t argue.

  • On the bus, talk in soft voices, keep your feet off the seats in front of you. Yelling, group singing or tossing things across the aisles to other students, and flash pictures are not appropriate for the bus and will distract the driver.  Don’t leave trash on the bus!

  • You may use electronic devices on the bus but not at the festival site.  Once we step off the bus all devices must be put away!

  • No One is to be on his or her own.  Always stick with at least 2 people. Even when you use the restroom. 2 people should always go.  If there are only 3 in the group then all 3 should go.  Don’t leave anyone alone!  Always make sure that your chaperone knows where you are and WHO you are with. You must report visually to your chaperone at the required times. (Did I say this already?)

  • Stay out of restricted or off-limits areas at the festival site and at Disneyland.  Climbing on ledges, balconies, etc. or cutting through shrubbery or over walls is never allowed.  Always use sidewalks or provided walkways. 

  • Always observe all safety precautions.  You must be adhere to ALL Disneyland Rules.
