The classic expected hallways of Marian Central have now turned into the magical experience everyone loves, Disney World. Marian’s Homecoming brings the Disney World experience to Woodstock without ever leaving the state. The seniors’ hallway has been transformed into the grand castle of Magic Kingdom. The cultural hall of Epcot, which was once the junior hallway, is a worldwide experience everyone can enjoy. The sophomore hall has been rebuilt into the backstage set of Hollywood Studios. The mighty jungle of Animal Kingdom is now home to the freshman. There is no need for a ticket to enjoy this exciting version of Disney.

Zebras and leopards have been spotted in the Animal Kingdom. While strolling through the jungle in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, explorers can enjoy safari-like rides and visit the wild zoo. Lauren McNulty (9) believed her hallway sounded exotic and fun and easy to dress for. McNulty said, “I’d say to go all out!” McNulty was seen around the jungle as a cheetah along with lions, tigers, elephants, and many other animals. These freshmen are wild!

The spotlight is on the sophomore class as they take action in Hollywood Studios. The theme park is known for its backstage movie presentations and movie-themed rides such as the Tower of Terror based off of The Twilight zone. Lilly Sharp (10) stated, “I thought the Disney theme was different and fun, so I was excited to do it. Hollywood Studios has a wide variety of things to choose from.”  Sharp was dressed as Boo from Disney’s Monsters Inc. as it is one her favorite movies.  Sharp was seen in purple leggings along with a pink shirt and pigtails. She believes it is important to have fun with the themes while not overdoing it. Other students have been seen as film directors with paparazzi, wearing cameras around their necks and official TMZ hats. Like the movie stars of Hollywood Studios, the sophomores really got into character.

Epcot is both an around the world and futuristic experience! Cultures are also blended together in this theme park. People can visit their favorite country and the enjoy authentic food. The junior class students have been seen as people from all over the world including Germany, Hawaii, and even touring the United States.  Juniors were seen dressed in French berets, Chinese kimonos, and British flag shirts. Emma Baader (11) responded, “At first I thought the theme would be difficult to dress for, but then I realized that America is in Epcot, so then I got excited!” Baader was seen as a New York tourist along with Thor Paglialong (11). The two students wore “I love NY” shirts and been taking pictures of their adventures across the globe all day. Even though most students focused on the cultural aspect of Epcot, they were still able to bring this theme out of this world.

The royal seniors are now the princes and princesses of Magic Kingdom. The kingdom features a ride for every Disney princess including Ariel’s experience under the sea and a ride with Snow White and her seven dwarfs through their underground mine. Princesses Anna and Elsa,  also known as Julia Jenkner (12) and Madelyn Merryman (12), were spotted roaming the castle. The two princesses wore long gowns and heels with tiaras. Jenkner excitedly states, “When I heard about my hall, I was really excited because when I think of Disney, I automatically think of Cinderella’s Castle at Magic Kingdom. I feel like it’s the heart of Disney and captures what Disney really is.”  Seniors were dressed as other princesses including Belle, Snow White, and Cinderella, all wearing gowns and tiaras. Minnie Mouse was also seen among the seniors dressed in a red tutu and Minnie ears. Winnie the Pooh and friends were represented by seniors dressed in Piglet pink shirts with ears and Winnie the Pooh red and yellow shirts. These Disney characters all were seen wandering the castle halls of Marian Central’s Magic Kingdom.

The costumes definitely brought out the personality and inner creativity in everyone. From princesses and princes to wild animals, the Disney theme presented by Marian is one that is inventive and fun for all students, bringing magic, wonder, and excitement to all. The theme is loved by all and has created many memories of homecoming week that the Marian Central student body will remember forever.
