    When cheer teams stay offsite.. when do they get their park passes?

    Cheers, Parker! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question! It sounds like you're getting set to head to the National High School Cheerleading Championship at the Walt Disney World Resort next month! My daughter competed at this prestigious event at the ESPN Wide World of Sports with her cheer team a few years ago, and it was definitely a magical experience for both of us! You're in for a high-energy visit packed with magical moments both on and off the cheer mat!

    If you purchased your theme park tickets through Varsity, you should receive them within 7-10 business days after placing your order via email. If it has been longer than that, I would reach out to your cheer coach and ask for the contact information for your school's Varsity representative who should be able to check on your ticket order. Once you receive the ticket numbers, you can easily link the tickets to your My Disney Experience account and then assign them to the members of your travel party. To do this, make sure everyone has their own account and is linked to your account in your Friends and Family list. This will also allow you to share plans and photos, join Virtual Queues, and book Individual Lightning Lane and Disney Genie+ entries as a group, if you choose to use those services.

    Parker, the ESPN complex is beautiful, but it is also big! There will be teams competing in many different arenas, so you may want to take a look at this helpful map before you arrive to become familiar with the lay of the land! 

    And one quick bonus tip for you - when we took my daughter's cheer team, we stopped by Guest Relations at the entry to our first theme park and got an "I'm Celebrating" button for each of the cheerleaders! The Cast Members will be happy to personalize it with a message to celebrate their competition at the National High School Cheerleading Championship! Our team also loved stopping by Sir Mickey's in Magic Kingdom Park and getting pixie dusted - we are never too old to celebrate our inner princess, after all!

    Wishing you a magical vacation and a routine that hits zero! Come back anytime if we can help with anything else before you arrive! You bring the cheers; we're all ears!

    See you real soon,
