Walt Disney World® Park Reservations

  • NEW: If you are on the travel package or purchase a Magic Your Way Ticket with Park Hopper® Option from Varsity Spirit, you will be able to make a reservation for at least one of the theme parks. It is a possibility that some parks may reach capacity so we strongly recommend you register / pay early so you can get your tickets and book your reservations for your top choices. 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.
  • To help manage park capacity, the Walt Disney World Resort has introduced the Disney Park Pass service, a new Theme Park reservation system. Once you register and pay in full, Varsity Spirit will send you a ticket order confirmation number in 7-10 business days and details on how to make your reservation, including how to create your account, make park reservations and how to get your Park Hopper tickets. One contact person for each invoice will receive ticket confirmation numbers and can make theme park reservations. Please note, tickets will be available in late August to those who have paid in full.
  • In order to make your Theme Park reservations, you will need a My Disney Experiences account and valid Theme Park admission linked to it. Then, simply log into your 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.
  • Please note that NO changes/upgrades are possible after ticket orders have been placed. And remember, no Disney Park Hopper tickets will be sold on site during registration this year.
  • For those spectators and participants on our hotel travel package and those who purchased a Walt Disney World Park Hopper pass from Varsity Spirit,  a park reservation for Magic Kingdom will be pre-loaded on to your ticket for the day of your All American’s performance.    When you receive your ticket number from Varsity Spirit and enter it into your My Disney Experience account, you will see the reservation for the performance day.  This reservation cannot be moved to another park nor deleted.  Information about how to make Park Reservations for the other days of your stay will be included in the information you receive with your park ticket numbers in late August.

Health & Safety Information

FAQ

How much spending money should I bring with me?
That’s up to you. You will only need money for meals not included in the package and miscellaneous items such as snacks and souvenirs.

How often will I receive updates?
We try to communicate regularly with all attendees. Most of the communication will come through email or our Facebook page. If you’re not receiving emails or have additional email addresses you’d like added to our distribution list then email John Calitri at jcalitri@varsity.com.

My coach is coming to Florida as a spectator. Can he/she attend practice? Can my parents?
In order to eliminate all distractions and comply with social distancing, our rehearsals are closed to all spectators. This will hopefully allow us to streamline the practices which in turn should allow for more time in the parks!

What happens if I get injured or become ill during the event?
We will have first aid staff on duty throughout the event. Additional medical treatment is at the expense of the participant.

When do we need to arrive to Orlando?
Normal arrival day is Friday, Nov. 19. We do offer a limited number of extra nights on Thursday, Nov. 18 for those requesting an early arrival. We suggest arriving at the resort no later than 3:30 PM on Sunday (2:00 PM arrival to the Orlando International Airport MCO).  This will allow plenty of time for you to get to the hotel, register and be ready for rehearsal that evening.  It will also allow for any potential flight delays due to weather. 

Do we have to follow the group itinerary when it comes to visiting the theme parks each day?
No, unless it is your performance day.  You must follow the group itinerary for your group performance times.  Other days you do not have to follow the group itinerary.

We missed our deadline for registration and deposit…Are we too late?
Please call our Customer Service at 844-399-0644 for availability.

How do we know what size uniform to order?
Watch this short video with instructions on how to properly measure for your uniform. Please note: Your current Varsity uniform will more than likely be a different fit than the uniform we use for Special Events. 

My performer already has a uniform from a 2019 Varsity Spirit Spectacular. Is the uniform the same and do we get a discount? 
The uniform for the 2021 Varsity Spirit Spectacular will be the same as the 2019 event but not the 2020 event. If your performer already has the uniform from the 2019 Varsity Spirit Spectacular, please indicate this on your uniform sheet and you may deduct $40 from your cost.

What is the difference between the Participant and Spectator pricing?
The uniform, performer bag, choreography material and parade opportunity are the only differences. Everything that is listed as INCLUDED in the tour package is available to everyone.

Are there advantages to staying at the Coronado Springs Resort™?
Yes, in addition to the convenience of the Varsity check in, orientation and rehearsal being at the Coronado Springs Resort™ Disney provides transportation to all of the Walt Disney World theme parks from the resort.
