    We are attending the Summit at the beginning of May. Since we don’t have hotel reservation numbers since they are booked as a group, can we still access the parks early and if so, how do we do this?

    Hi there Megan! From one cheer mom to another, Welcome to planDisney! Thank you for stopping by with your excellent question. I'm thrilled to assist you! Can you believe The Summit 2024 Championship is right around the corner? My daughter's team will be at the D1 Summit Championship so I will also be at Walt Disney World next week cheering the teams on!

    I also purchased my package through Varsity, where Disney Hotel Resorts are bundled with theme park tickets and admission to ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. As a mom who has attended The Summit Championship for multiple years, I have always found it a bit frustrating that Varsity does not offer spectators who book the package our hotel confirmation number. But rest assured there is a way to obtain this information!

    I recently received my confirmation number and I did so by calling the hotel number listed in the hotel information email Varsity sent. The subject of the email is "The Summit Championship 2024." That email contained hotel information including the hotel address and phone number. When I called, I spoke with a friendly Cast Member and advised I'd be arriving next week and requested my confirmation number. After verifying my personal information, the cast member was able to locate my reservation and give me the confirmation number. If the Cast Member is unable to locate your reservation (I ran into this a few years ago and was told it was because it was a group reservation) you will be able to obtain your confirmation number at check in.

    A helpful tip - In preparation for our arrival, Varsity sent out an email yesterday that contains an event information packet filled with details that will help you leading up to and during your time at the The Summit and information on ESPN single day tickets.

    I hope you find this information helpful Megan. Thank you again for visiting planDisney. Here's to hitting zero!
