    We are attending the May 10-12 D2 summit and didn’t purchase the hotel packages through Disney/varsity. We purchased our room and tickets directly through Disney’s website but still wanted to attend the celebration party(may12).How do we buy tickets?

    Hey, howdy, hey, Jamie! Welcome to planDisney! You're just a few days away from your visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth and I'm sure the anticipation of attending the D2 Summit at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex is building as each day passes by! You're going to have a magical time watching your favorite team compete and enjoying the competition atmosphere all around you!

    For Varsity-sponsored events like this one, there is a Celebration Party hosted on the final night of the event; in this case, the Celebration Party will be held on Sunday, May 12 from 9 PM to 1 AM at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Tickets for this event must be purchased in advance directly from Varsity; while online advance sales have ended, spectators can still purchase tickets on-site at the Championship Office at select Disney Resort hotels while supplies last. I'd recommend reaching out to your coach or Varsity event representative directly to get specific locations and hours for purchasing your tickets once you arrive in Orlando. It's important to note that these tickets are not like traditional theme park tickets where you will connect them to your My Disney Experience account to access the event; they will be wristbands required for entry to the event, so be sure to keep them in a safe place until you're ready to attend the party!

    Jamie, while you're celebrating at this exclusive event, you'll have access to certain attractions like The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and Toy Story Land favorites like Slinky Dog Dash! You'll also have the opportunity to dance on the red carpet of Hollywood with dance parties - there's nothing quite like celebrating your team's accomplishments in a park that's sure to give you the VIP star treatment!

    One last reminder about your upcoming visit - because you mentioned that you did not purchase a hotel travel package with Varsity, be sure you have purchased tickets for the D2 Summit competition to gain entry into the events at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. These tickets are separate tickets that can be purchased online only, and ticket sales will remain open throughout the event. There will be no on-site ticket sales for spectators, so if you still need to purchase these admission tickets, you can find them online here.

    Jamie, I'm wishing you a magical vacation experience and I'm wishing your team great success as they compete for a spot at the top of the Summit! If you have any other questions I can help with before you leave, feel free to come back and let me know

    Here's to making magic and hitting zero,
