It was also a result of laborious communication with Disney, to whom Sullivan initially sent an application in September of 2012 and subsequently followed through with other requirements like photos and a performance DVD. “When all is said and done, our students may not remember the big Math exam or the day they took the ACT or even a Friday night football game in October,” says Sullivan, “but they will remember marching down Main Street in the Magic Kingdom playing Hail to the Varsity (our fight song) in front of 30,000 people. “I told the band that they probably would be back at another point in their lives, but it will never be this time with these people, together, again. The marching band is a close group. The fellowship of playing, performing and sharing in the process of making music in motion is what makes that bond so strong.” Brooklyn’s Hurricane Marching Band Courtesy of Sean Sullivan The high school students began payments in February 2013 to cover the trip’s expenses of travel, food, lodging, and fun. Sixteen months later, their investment of hard work, hours of practice, and finances was realized when they boarded the two private buses at Brooklyn High School on Friday, June 6. Packed to the hilt with instruments, uniforms, luggage, students, chaperones, and loads of excitement, the busses pulled out of Brooklyn at 8:00 p.m. Unfortunately, more than an hour into the trip one of the busses broke down, obligating the group to wait on the side of the highway for a replacement. Within two hours they were back on the road, safely arriving in Orlando Saturday evening. Per Disney’s strict and meticulous stipulations, the Hurricettes danced in the parade wearing their long-sleeved leotards and boots, while the band marched and played in their complete uniforms of wool jackets, long pants, hats, gloves, and black shoes all perfect wear for northern Ohio’s chilly football season, but a proven challenge under Florida’s afternoon sun.

New Soccer Merchandise Scores a Goal at Walt Disney World Resort | TBO.com, The Tampa Tribune and The Tampa Times
Elsewhere at Walt Disney World Resort , we have recently introduced new soccer-themed goods that have a splash of Disney. Decorated in hues of blue, green, yellow and white, my company this small new assortment was created specifically for World Showcase at Epcot . The main logo features a silhouette of Mickey Mouse kicking a soccer ball, which was used on several apparel items, a glass mug and two open edition pins . These items can be found in select locations at Epcot and at the World of Disney in Downtown Disney Marketplace. The two open edition pins will also be released in select locations at Disneyland Resort . One of my favorite items is a limited release pin featuring Jose Carioca, a character not often seen on Disney merchandise. He was originally created for Walt Disneys Saludos Amigos in 1942, and now stars in the Mexico Pavilion attraction at Epcot, Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros . This pin was released at Disney Traders and Village Traders in World Showcase at Epcot, World of Disney in Downtown Disney Marketplace and Sport Goofy at Disneys All-Star Sports Resort . Speaking of Epcot, you can watch many of the World Cup games in the Odyssey Center. Thats just one of many viewing locations at Walt Disney World Resort.
