ESPN Wide World of Sports single-day tickets:
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.
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.

$40 per person
Spirit Video: Teams competing in Game Day at NDTC will submit a video prior to the championship that will include footage of the dance team in school and in the community. There is a possible total of 15 total points to be earned and these will be played at the beginning of the team’s performance at NDTC. For more information on Spirit Videos, click HERE.
Fight Song: The first element should reflect your school’s traditional Fight Song. The skills and choreography should represent the traditional Fight Song that your team performs at games and community events. Teams can choose to incorporate crowd effective skills to enhance the overall effect. For teams that do not have an official Fight Song, it is recommended to use the second selection of band chant music. Music guidelines are available at varsity.com/music.
Spirit Raising Performance: This element will follow the Fight Song. There will NOT be a cue given by the announcer. Teams will choose to perform ONE of the following elements; Sideline Routine, Stand Routine, or Drum Cadence. Squads should focus on crowd appeal, and choreography/skills need to be relevant to a game-day environment. These can be performed to band music or a piece of popular music. Music guidelines are available at varsity.com/music.
Performance Routine: The final element is a 1:00 routine that can be in any of the following styles: Pom, Jazz, Kick, or Hip Hop. There will NOT be a cue given by the announcer. These routines should be designed for crowd entertainment and would be something your team would perform during a timeout or halftime. This is the best time showcase your team’s energy and connection to the crowd.
Teams must show a clear separation between elements. Teams are highly encouraged to show spirited interaction as a clear transition.
The format for Game Day is inspired by what teams do at home throughout their season. With all three elements combined, the Game Day performance cannot exceed a 3:30 time limit (Spirit Video will not count toward the overall time limit.)
