Disney Trip 2018

The Bridger Band will be heading to Florida December 5-9, 2018!

This note has been sent home to all parents regarding the trip:

Letter from Mrs. Dewar

This page is intended to help provide information related to the trip including the tentative itinerary, payment schedule and package details. The total cost of the trip is $1,425/student, based on quad occupancy. The pricing is assuming an airfare of $300 per person. A non-refundable $250 deposit is due on June 8, along with a signed trip contract, which you can download here:

Payment Schedule

When making payments, please submit these printable Payment Coupons to help us track the incoming funds. Checks should be made payable to "AABB, Inc."

Note that the final balance (October 5) will depend on the total final price of the trip. The final number will depend on the exact cost of airfare, and how much money has been generated by Booster-sponsored fundraising activities. The more money the band is able to raise through fundraisers, the lower the total amount per student will ultimately be. We encourage all parents to help with fundraising activities for the benefit of the group.

When students participate in band fundraisers, their share of profits will be added to their student accounts. That money can be used toward the trip balances. In the past, several students have managed to fundraise their entire trips so that they didn't have to spend any money to participate (aside from whatever spending money they want to take along for souvenirs, etc.)! The band provides numerous fundraising opportunities in the hopes that cost will not prevent students from attending. Student accounts are currently being managed by Laura Mikush. Contact Laura to have money applied from a student account to trip balances.

  • Round trip air on Southwest Airlines PIT/MCO
