EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Some local police officers and students are off to experience some Disney magic.

The kids and chaperones gathered at C. K. Newsome Center Monday morning to get on a bus and head to the airport in Nashville.

The students were chosen to go to Walt Disney World in Orlando, based on their good behavior in school.

Some could not contain their happiness when they found out.

“I was super pumped. I was like punching the air like. I was up there, I was too sporadic to do anything. I was just sat down then I stood up. I was just jumping. I was happy,” said Jaxson Egdorf, a student at Princeton Community Middle School.

The group was so big that it was split into two groups going on two separate fights.

The Disney trip takes place every year to build positive relationships between members of law enforcement and the youth in their respective communities.
