    My daughter is coming to compete at the 2022 cheerleading worlds. I am not staying on site, do I need to purchase an additional park pass to attend the events at ESPN? I already have purchased the single day spectator tickets

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Deanna. 

    Congratulations to your daughter and your daughter's team for making it to Worlds. That is such a big accomplishment. My daughter is also an all-star cheerleader and I know just how hard those girls work to make it to those types of competitions. In fact, my daughter is also competing in a competition at Walt Disney World in May. 

    Because we've been to quite a few cheerleading competitions at Walt Disney World over the years, I kind of have a good feel for how they all work and operate now. For the competition itself, you'll only need an ESPN World Wide of Sports entry ticket that you can purchase through the event company itself. You can typically purchase these the day of, that way if your team doesn't advance to the next day's competition you aren't out any additional money. That's really all you will need to see your daughter compete. Now, if you wish to visit the Walt Disney World Theme Parks in addition to the competition, you will need to purchase tickets to do that. Typically you'll have a link for your team through the event company to purchase additional theme park tickets for your athlete's family. This can be a 1 day or a multi-day ticket. Keep in mind that you don't have to visit the Walt Disney World Theme Parks, it's just an additional option if you would like. After you've purchased your Walt Disney World Theme Park tickets you'll then link them to your MyDisneyExperience account. After that, you'll need to make park pass reservations for a particular theme park you'd like to visit each day. Once all of that is done, you are all set for a magical Walt Disney World vacation

    I'm sending your daughter and her team all of the pixie dust, Deanna. If you have other questions about this or anything else, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm here to help. 

    Good luck!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
