On February 15, sixty-seven students of the senior class congregated in the auditorium at three in the morning. It was the beginning of an exciting, remarkable, and unforgettable adventure. Although it was so early and cold, you could feel the anticipation in the air. The excitement persisted until the very last day of the trip. From walking around the park from early in the morning to late at night, going on rides, meeting characters, taking pictures, and spending time with friends the trip was truly magical. Personally, I absolutely loved every second of this trip and I would do it all again in a heartbeat. I interviewed some of my fellow classmates who attended the trip to ask them about their experience.
Q: What was your favorite part of the Disney trip?
The entire trip was one of the best experiences of my life but if I had to pick a favorite part, I would say it was getting to create such a bond with Mr. Terrusa and Mr. Dellegrazie. The both of them had always been very high up on my list of favorite teachers, but after a week of being with them outside of the classroom I was able to make so many memories with them and I realized that they are two of the funniest, kindest people I’ve ever known. They put so much time and effort into planning every last detail and seeing them have fun with all of us made it all seem worth it.
Q: What was your favorite ride?
My favorite ride was the Harry Potter Gringotts ride in Universal Studios. The wait for the ride in the bank setting was so detailed and the goblins were very realistic. The ride itself was the best I have ever been on in my life. The visual effects were exciting and riveting, as I was chased by dragons, armored giants, and He Who Must Not Be Named. -Brandon Griffo
Q: Who was your favorite character to meet?
My favorite character to meet was Rapunzel because she told me to let someone steal my tiara because that’s how she found her prince. -Katie Frey
Q: Is there anything you would recommend if someone were to go to Disney in the near future?
Definitely get as much sleep as possible. Our schedule is so tight – we wake up so early and go to bed so late that we were taking naps at any possible second.- Amanda DeMeo
Q: Is there anything you would change about your experience?
I would have loved to get more sleep but there are only so many hours in a day.
Q: What advice would you give to juniors who are considering going on the trip next year?
Definitely go! -Isabella Biesty
Advice to juniors: If you are considering going on the trip but you’re not 100% sure, I would totally recommend going. It’s probably your last opportunity to do something all together as a grade that you’ll look back on after Tech. -Julie Moses
Q: What was the most memorable part from the trip?
Eating dinner at Belle’s Castle- I felt like I was in the movie! -Isabella Biesty
Q: If you could describe your trip in one word, what would it be?
If I could describe the trip in one word it would definitely be “exciting” because i got to experience everything the happiest place on earth had to offer with all of my best friends. there was never a dull moment on this trip, especially because we were in the parks from opening until closing. -Amanda Aurilia
“Magical.” -Baaba Annan
