Lake Howell Protocols and Important Reminders

  • Check-in begins at 5:30pm and ends at 6:30pm.  Due to the nature of the venue, if you are not checked-in by 6:30pm, you will not be allowed to enter prom. This cannot be stressed enough so please PLAN ACCORDINGLY
  • Once you check-in, you cannot leave the registration area.
  • Plan for traffic!!  Travel from Lake Howell to the venue can take up to 50 minutes.  Accidents happen on roads and sometimes Google Maps does not account for the accident.  GIVE YOURSELF TIME!  Rather be safe and on time than late and sorry.
  • Once you park, it can take up to 15 minutes to walk to the registration area.  Parking will be free.  If you are travelling via limousine or Uber, there will be a drop off area for you.
  • There will be a free coat check at prom.  Use it wisely.  Do not leave your valuables unattended.  Neither Lake Howell or Disney are responsible for items that are lost or stolen at prom.  We suggest you bring ONLY the essentials. Per SCPS Protocols, purses cannot be larger than 6in. (half a sheet of paper).  Absolutely no backpacks, tote bags or large purses.  Leave those in your car or at home.
  • Prom ends at 11pm.  If you are getting picked up, please make sure that they are at the parking lot before 11pm.

Prom is a very formal event so please, mind your manners.

  • Gentlemen, please remember to pull out chairs for any of the ladies sitting at your table.
  • Elbows off the table please!  Chew with your mouth closed.
  • Do not yell across the room.
  • The silverware set at your table is setup to be used starting from the outside and working your way in.  Also, your napkin goes on your lap.
  • Drinks are placed on the right-hand side of the plate.
  • Please stay seated during dinner.  Every time someone gets up to walk around/use the restroom, the hotel staff have to wait until everyone is back at the table to serve your food.  That takes up valuable “dance time” so please STAY SEATED!
  • When the waiter/waitress asks to see your wristband, please show them immediately.  If you take your wristband off, you will not be served and you will be escorted out of prom.
  • The dance will begin after dessert is finished.
