    Laura from PA Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    I will be attending the Summit Championship in May in support of my niece, but traveling separately so if I buy a celebration party ticket will it be emailed? Will the party have characters for pictures? Food? Thanks. Excited for her and team!!

    Ready, Laura? OK! Thanks for visiting planDisney with your question today. Consider me your personal spirit squad, ready to help track down the information you're looking for!

    I'm so excited that your niece and her squad will be traveling to Walt Disney World Resort to compete at The Summit Championship--what a remarkable accomplishment! This event takes over the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, with talented teams from around the world showing off their high-flying skills. And what a terrific aunt YOU are to come and support them! The atmosphere is electric, and it is so fun to be a spectator. 

    These athletes work really hard, so they certainly deserve a post-competition party to unwind and celebrate. This year's event will be happening at Disney's Hollywood Studios from 9:00 PM-1:00 AM on Sunday, May 5 and it's sure to be a great time! Athletes and spectators attending the Celebration Party will enjoy exclusive after-hours access to the park and shorter lines for attractions. A DJ will be spinning tunes, and select food and beverage locations will be open. Typically, there are not Disney characters at these events. 

    Laura, if you choose to purchase a ticket for the Celebration Party, keep your confirmation on your phone. You will receive a wristband upon entering Hollywood Studios on the night of the party, which will identify you as a Guest for the Cast Members in the park that evening. The complete list of attractions open that evening will be available closer to the event, but I can share that at the recent national dance and cheerleading championships (operated by the same event organizers as Summit), these included: 
    • Alien Swirling Saucers
    • Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway
    • Millennium Falcon: Smuggler's Run
    • Muppet*Vision 3D
    • Slinky Dog Dash
    • Star Tours - The Adventures Continue
    • The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
    • Toy Story Mania!
    Wishing your niece and her team a wonderful experience at Summit, Laura! You'll have to let me know how they do. Thanks so much for visiting planDisney, and please reach out again any time if we can help with any other vacation planning questions. 

    Go Team!
