    Hi! I am a cheer coach and I attend the All American and High School Nationals Events every year. Can my annual pass be used for those events since typically those packages are purchased through Varsity?

    Hi Kristi, 

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for asking us a great question! On behalf of all parents whose kiddos play in organized sports, THANK YOU for volunteering your time to help them grow and develop, both on and off the court!

    The answer to your question really depends on what types of packages your event organizers offer their participants. While you can always use your Annual Pass to enter a Theme Park during regular operating hours (provided that your pass doesn’t have any blackout dates), event organizers may not allow you to “opt out” of purchasing tickets with their packages. This will be especially true if the packages include access to an “after hours” or other special event that will take place after a given Theme Park closes for the day, which sometimes happens for these kinds of sporting events. 

    My recommendation would be to speak to Varsity about the package options that are available to you for their competitions. They’ll be able to give you a concrete answer about whether you’ll need to purchase Theme Park Tickets as part of the event package. Please note that any ticketed competition events that may take place at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex will also need to be purchased separately as well. 

    I hope my answer helps you plan a successful and Magical competition for you and your teams. Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions!

    Have a Magical Day,
