Disney Gives Schools First-Class Treatment

When you let your students discover the wonder and joy of Disney on Broadway, we’ll make the experience unforgettable! This school year give your students a day to remember by taking advantage of Disney’s educational program, which provides schools with special rates for groups of 15 or more for Beauty and the Beast, Aida and Lion King.

In addition, because we know that you want to provide the necessary adult supervision, Disney gives educators one free ticket for every 15 purchased at all three shows. Flexible policies allow teachers to pay in full 2-3 months before the performance. Disney invites schools to dedicate an entire day to the theater and to enhance the group’s experience by taking a historical tour of the New Amsterdam Theater the morning prior to the performance. Built in 1903, the New Amsterdam has long been the crown jewel of Broadway’s theaters. After a two-year restoration process that led to the theater’s re-opening in 1997, the theater now hosts Disney’s Tony Award winning musical, The Lion King. The New Amsterdam Theater is the perfect venue for events ranging from 15 to 1800 people. The theater and its two historic rooms, The Ziegfeld Room and the New Amsterdam Room, can accommodate everything from a full production to an intimate candlelight dinner. For more information please call Amy Andrews at 212-282-2907.

We will help teachers arrive to the theater prepared. For every show Disney has developed study guides that help teachers develop projects, discussion and activities. And, for those students who always have a question after most Wednesday matinees, members of the cast, orchestra or crew are available to appear for special Q & A sessions with students.

Students can also enjoy discounts on Disney on Broadway souvenir merchandise, as each member of your group will receive a merchandise coupon for great savings at the theater. Teachers can also arrange special lunch savings at McDonald’s Times Square location, which, with seating of over 2000, specializes in school groups customized for any budget. Finally, groups save on Gray Line New York bus charters, as special Disney promotional rates are available.
