Travel Tips and Discounts

Mears Connect: Airport Transportation

  • Transportation is not included in the hotel travel package to and from the airport. The Disney Magical Express is not in operation at the time. Transportation is provided from the hotel to the venue for those on the travel package.

Walt Disney World Theme Park Reservations:

To help manage park capacity, the Walt Disney World Resort has introduced the Disney Park Pass service, a new Theme Park reservation system. In order to make your Theme Park reservations, you will need a My Disney Experiences account and valid Theme Park admission linked to it.  Once you are paid in full, approximately 7-10 business days later, Varsity Spirit will send you a ticket confirmation order number. Then, simply create a My Disney Experience account and select the dates and Theme Parks you wish to visit. To enter a Theme Park, both a reservation and valid admission for the same Park on the same date are required. Please note that reservations are limited in capacity, subject to availability and are not guaranteed until confirmed. If the first park you would like to attend reaches capacity, you can make a reservation for another park and then “hop” to your top choice after 2PM that day. Park availability is very limited and Varsity Spirit will not be able to assist with park reservations.

IMPORTANT NOTE WHEN PURCHASING THEME PARK TICKETS: The reselling or the transferring of theme park tickets in the state of Florida is a crime as described under Florida state laws; Florida Statutes s. 817.361 and Florida Statutes s. 817.36

Park Reservation How-To Resources:

Please note: There is a 25 person/ticket maximum on managing/linking per unique My Disney Experience account. And in the PDFs above, MDX is an abbreviation for My Disney Experience.

Dance Summit Testimonials

"'Our first experience at the championship in 2018 totally exceeded our hopes and expectations! Our program has been competing for many years and our older dancers are so passionate about Dance Worlds. Dance Summit has created that same level of excitement and pure commitment for our younger, yet equally intense dancers. It was an honor and an absolute blast to share the stage with such amazing programs. The memories our dancers and their families made are priceless and we can't wait to come back.'" Lee Eaves MitchellThe Vision Dance Center
"'There is no event like this one, where the best talent in the industry come together to challenge and inspire each other. My dancers always look forward to an unforgettable bonding experience and as far as the memories made.'" Lauren NewellDance Dynamics
"'This is the competition that each and every one of our dancers counts down the days to every year. The championships makes every dancer from every program feels like they are a part of something truly epic, and it’s because they are! It’s an amazing, smoothly run competition, where our dancers learn and grow with other dancers from around the country.'" Kayla PittnerDollhouse Dance Factory
