    Cheer team coming for nationals was unable to stay on site (already full). I know parking is free at ESPN. However, when the girls (and family) are able to visit the parks, will we have to pay to park? Can we park at ESPN and bus over to parks?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Christy!

    I know competing in the middle of all the magic of Walt Disney World Resort is a highlight for many cheer squads.  Congratulations to your team on receiving a bid to the 2020 National High School Cheerleading Championship!

    You are correct that standard self-parking is complimentary at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex for spectators attending events there.  Varsity Spirit (the organizer of the competition) provides bus transportation for participants between ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex and the hotels included in the event travel package.  Complimentary Disney bus transportation to ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex is provided on a limited basis from select Disney Resort Hotels.  Buses do not provide direct transportation between ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex and the theme parks.

    If your vehicle is parked at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex and you'd like to go directly to a theme park from there, you'll need to drive to a theme park parking lot.  Theme park parking is subject to a parking fee.

    Please let us know if you have any additional questions.  We are always happy to help.  Best of luck to your team as they compete!
