Tour Itinerary

Day One - Sunday 13th April

You will be picked up from your club or school this morning for the journey to Disneyland Paris. On arrival, our tour managers will check you into your accommodation and you will then have the remainder of the evening free to settle in.

Day Two - Monday 14th April

This morning we will commence the International Junior Rugby Tournament matches which will take place throughout the morning and early afternoon. At this pool stage of the Tournament, teams compete to determine their place in either The International Cup or Shield Competition Play-Offs and Finals. The remainder of the afternoon and evening are then free to enjoy Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park.

Day Three - Tuesday 15th April

Today players and coaches will take part in our exclusive Coaching Clinics and International Players Masterclasses. The specialist sessions will promote and develop both team and individual player skills. By spending time with each team and players individually it is possible to deliver bespoke and innovative sessions that build on their current ability levels and lay the foundations for future development.

Team coaches are also encouraged to interact with our coaches and the international players and to participate in the Clinics and Masterclasses. As part of our ongoing coaching support, each team coach will receive a copy of the Festival Coaching Manual. There will then once again be free time during the late afternoon and evening for everyone to enjoy the Disney® Parks.

Day Four - Wednesday 16th April

The International Cup and Shield Competition Play-Offs and Finals will be played today, taking place during the morning and early afternoon. Traditionally competitive and featuring a high standard of rugby, they also enable players to put into practise the knowledge and skills picked up during the Coaching Clinics and International Players Masterclasses. The late afternoon is then free to enjoy the Disney Parks.

The Festival will conclude with the Awards Ceremony, held in Disney® Village, with dinner included. The international player celebrities will present the tournament winners with their trophies.

Day Five - Thursday 17th April

After breakfast you will leave Disneyland Paris and make the journey back to your school or club at the end of a thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding five days away.

Further Information

Coaching Clinics and International Players Masterclasses

The clinics and masterclasses are delivered in partnership with Paul Turner's Elite Rugby Coaching. As a result of his time at the top level of the game, and the great respect in which he is held, Paul will be supported by an outstanding coaching team and renowned international players. International players who have led masterclasses in previous years include Luke Charteris, Ryan Jones, Andy Gomarsall, Keith Wood, Jason Leonard, Scott Quinnell and Zinzan Brooke.

Paul and his coaching team will be delivering up-to-date skills sessions, both 'Core' and 'Technical', as well as introducing 'Games for Understanding', that enable young players to understand the different kinds of situations they find themselves in on the rugby field and then how to 'read' or 'react' to those situations for the benefit of their team. The coaching team will focus on 'GfU' immediately after each skills session, so the players learn the rugby knowledge of 'Where' 'When' and 'Why' on the rugby field.

Travel Arrangements

We are pleased to offer all groups of 40 or more passengers the exclusive use of their own 48 or 49 seater coach for the entire duration of the Festival. Groups of less than 40 passengers will be allocated a shared coach with another school or club for their travel arrangements for the duration of the Festival to ensure they have no coach under-occupancy charge to pay.

Accommodation

Specifically chosen for its suitability for junior sports teams, Disney's Davy Crockett Ranch offers cabin style accommodation, with each cabin containing one double bed in one bedroom, two bunk beds in a second bedroom and one double sofa bed in the living room. These spacious two-bedroom bungalow cabins can therefore accommodate up to six people. Ideal for groups, the Ranch's large indoor swimming pool is available for use by guests, free of charge.
