    We are coming to visit the week of October 16th and on the website it says Dragon Boat Festival on the 20th. What is this? Thanks!

    Hi there, Kari!

    The International Dragon Boat Festival is a fairly new tradition at Walt Disney World. This year - its fifth at Disney - , it will be hosted at at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.

    While not a large event in comparison with other sporting highlights at the Complex, the Dragon Boat Festival is sure to draw a loyal group of rowers and their followers.

    The sport, that originated in China, is gaining a fan following here in the US, and is on track to become a widely-accepted test of athleticism.

    Have a wonderful trip!

    See you later, celebrator,
