    We are coming in March 7-11. I have seen that the after party for the UCA cheer competition is going to be at Animal Kingdom. Could you tell me which attractions would be open that night?

    Hi Erika!

    We've got spirit, yes we do! We've got spirit, how 'bout you? I'm so excited to hear you'll be in The Most Magical Place on Earth this March for the UCA Cheer Competition! What an exciting event to attend - the level of talent of the cheer teams is off the chart.

    UCA events are held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex - an amazing venue with a touch of Disney magic. The sprawling complex has several locations where teams can compete, so if you're not sure exactly where to go, familiarize yourself with this map before you arrive!

    The Celebration Party at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is sure to be a "wild" time! The theme park will only be closed for an after-hours private party for the competition attendees and competitors. Select rides and attractions will be open and there will be a DJ spinning tunes to entertain the crowd. Maybe a dance mix of "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" or Katy Perry's "Roar" would be the perfect choice for a party at Animal Kingdom! 

    While they haven't yet released information regarding which attractions will be open during the Celebration Party, I encourage you to keep an eye on your email or the official UCA Competition event page for more details closer to the event. I hope you'll get to experience my two favorite Animal Kingdom attractions, Avatar Flight of Passage and Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain!

    2-4-6-8, who do we appreciate? You, for bringing your question to planDisney! I hope you have a wonderful Walt Disney World Resort vacation, and that there's lots to celebrate at the Celebration Party. Wishing your team all the best in the competition!
