Walt Disney World® Park Reservations

Walt Disney World requires “Park Reservations” made in advance to attend the theme parks.  We strongly recommend that all friends and family (spectators) register on a separate invoice from the team.

To help manage park capacity, the Walt Disney World Resort has introduced the Disney Park Pass service, a 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.   Please note that reservations are limited in capacity, subject to availability and are not guaranteed until confirmed.  You will not need a reservation to enter ESPN Wide World of Sports for competition, but you must link your ticket to enter the Complex.

Payment and Ticketing Information

Anyone included on your invoice will be part of your “ticket order, Ticket orders will be placed when your invoice is paid in full.

Once the order is placed, you will receive a ticket confirmation number via email for each person depending on their package or upgrade. If paying your registration in full before November you may not receive your ticket confirmation email until then.

Information on how to obtain your park reservations will be sent with your ticket confirmation email.

No Changes after ticket orders have been placed and ticket order numbers have been distributed.  Any upgrades must be requested before paying your invoice in full.

Please note that parks may reach capacity so be sure to get your payment in early!

Safety Champion Information

Each team will need to designate one person (other than the head coach) to be your Safety Champion. This person will need to be confirmed upon registration, over 18 years of age and willing to participate in additional safety training prior to Championship. Each team/squad needs a separate Safety Champion (ex: If you bring a JV and Varsity squad, you need two different individuals.) Some of the Safety Champion’s responsibilities include (but are not limited to) ensuring the athletes, coaches and spectators follow all safety guidelines.
