Mad Micromanaging Disney Mom

That's pretty remote. If he was another teacher in the district, he wouldn't be there as "her boyfriend". He would be there as "another teacher".
The OP didn't really go into detail, nor have they really been back to address anything. So the bf could still be another teacher, maybe from another district (who knows what he does). Whatever the case, if he's going, he's going. In actuality, at least he's known now... before the trip. As long as the kids aren't sleeping in coed situations, who honestly cares what the adults do? They're adults.

I wouldn’t care about the boyfriend being there but I’d be annoyed if I the trip was being spent as a vacation for teacher & boyfriend vs them chaperoning the kids as they are supposed to.

I really don’t understand why in the world they would make high school kids cancel a Fastpass and not let them go on splash mountain though. I don’t know how groups trips to disneyworld work though. I went to Disneyland in high school and we were pretty much let go on our own with scheduled meet-ups.
Yeah, forbidding rides on Splash Mountain seems to be overkill for high schoolers.

I think it was pretty unprofessional of the teacher to bring her boyfriend, especially if this wasn't run by the parents first. Not because they were unmarried, that's not a big deal. But because it's too likely it would interfere with her job. IMO, trip chaperones are there to make sure the kids don't run into trouble. They're not there to have a romantic trip with the SO. Call the school and tell them what's up, but just focus on the teacher part. The school probably will not care that your daughter had to stand in lines, but they may be bothered by what the teacher did. I would also ask around and see if any other parents are bothered by it.

Heck my kids school doesn't even allow chaperones for field trips without a background check, finger prints on file, and a 4 hour training course on proper chaperoning. I don't know how common the class portion is but definitely not something I remember when I was in school.

I understand your point about the boyfriend part and I understand it is 2019 but this is a trip for the students not for the chaperones.
It should be professional.

She is going to Disney world. I’m sure everything will be fine.

If the students had to pay for this trip I think they should be able to pick what they want to do or try.

On the group trips like this, when they're organizes by the school, its usually a requirement that the kids stay in groups. It's not really feasible to let the kids pick out the itinerary, since even if they're split into groups of, say, five kids each, that's going to be five different opinions on what they should be doing and five sets of parents mad that their kid wasn't able to do what they wanted. I know on my schools trip to New York the students were given some time to explore (in areas that were approved by the chaperone) but for the most part they had to stick to the activities that school planned.
