Rules for a fun day @ Disneyland
Check In: Any group missing a check point will stay after upon return.
Bathroom: Never separate from group, never go alone.
Rides: Never separate, take last escape point if not riding, & wait at exit.
Eating: Never separate from group. Wait in line together and then go to another place together if you don't want to eat the same thing. Tomorrowland has the widest selection with food all in the same area and COMMUNICATE with your group if you feel a place is too crowded.
Phone & Battery: Reception is never the same in different locations. Be prepared for your battery to drain much quicker than normal. Have a power bank with at least 2 full charges & a charging cord. (consider Low battery mode, brightness down)
If Lost: Go to Magic Castle - those passing castle temporarily adopt the lost one. To avoid getting lost or separated always keep one person in your group in your sight. Get each others numbers if you are able to text each other. Once separated it is very hard to find each other.
Stay off each other. You'll end up fighting discovering everyone's personal bubble of space is different. No one wants to be annoyed at Disneyland. Be respectful. Communicate with words.

Near wet rolling ball - I will be here if any issues. Please don't injure yourself on the wet rolling ball - it's slippery

Stay with group/buddy, check in, use restroom with a buddy.
7:33-46 pm Meet by Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln or near Magic Shop - when group dismissed, take tram to Toy Story parking.
LATE CHILDREN PAY LATE BUS FEES $110.00 This is a major safety issue.
8:03 pm Bus leaving We plan to return to school by 9:23 pm. Students staying after 20 minutes are selected based on trip behavior, tardiness, absences & no communication.
9:26 pm Arrive @ Chaminade MS unless a child is late to the bus. LATE CHILDREN PAY LATE BUS FEES $110.00
Check in points are imperative. Do not be late, and have your whole group. If missing someone, come to the check in point anyway. I need to see everyone's face & make sure each student knows each check in time & place. Being late guarantees staying upon return to make sure everything is put away properly.
Suggestion: Have your group write down everyone's first choice of ride, then consult map to make a path to hit everyone's ride. Choose fast passes for rides with longest lines. If everyone doesn't respect each other there will be problems, crying, and phone calls accompanied by lack of fun.
