Participating pep bands and drumlines will engage in a bracket-style performance, competing for crowd engagement against other Game Day Live pep bands. The purpose of this performance is to provide participating bands with another performance opportunity, engage with their peers in a fun and crowd-driven environment, and showcase the spirit raising abilities of bands to their audiences and administrations.
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. Park availability is very limited and Varsity Spirit will not be able to assist with park reservations.
Starting in 2024: visitors to Walt Disney World will be able to “hop” from park to park with no time restrictions. On Jan. 9, 2024, all-day park hopping access will return allowing any guest with a valid park hopper ticket to freely visit any of its four theme parks at any time during normal operation hours. Guests must still have a theme park reservation for the first park they want to visit. Once you visit that park, you can hop, anytime during the day to another park without a park reservation.
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.
