Walt Disney World Park Reservation Information

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 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.

Qualifying Information & Important Reminders

  • 75% of the qualifying team must have attended a Varsity Spirit Summer Camp and participate in the Squad Credentialing program in order to be eligible to compete and receive a bid at a 2020 UCA fall qualifying tournament for the 2021 National High School Cheerleading Championship. For more information on the Squad Credentialing program, click here.
  • Individuals may NOT represent more than one team at NHSCC. Exception – Junior Varsity members may perform with the Varsity in a Varsity Game Day Division.
  • It is understood that teams that participate in the National High School Cheerleading Championship will NOT knowingly and willingly participate in any other cheerleading event promoted as a national or international championship for the 2020-2021 school year.  (Exception: USA National Championship and The Quest Recreational Championship) A school can compete at UCA and NCA if that team is recognized as a separate team by the school and no athletes are the same.  (No athletes can compete at both events).  Teams who violate this rule will be subject to disqualification and will forfeit the opportunity to participate in the subsequent National High School Cheerleading Championship.
  • USA Cheer recommends that all coaches complete the USA Cheer/AACCA Safety Risk Management certification course. One coach per cheer team will be required to complete the certification course and must accompany the team at the NHSCC. Proof of certification is required upon registering for the National Championship. The course is accessible online or in person, and certification is valid for four years. The online course takes between 3 and 6 hours. Coaches can take the USA Cheer/AACCA safety course on USACheer.org/safety or on the NFHS site.
