    My daughter's cheer team was eligible to participate in a Disney parade a few years back. I am unsure how her coach registered them to do this. Is there a way to register a team to participate in a parade?

    Hiya Ashley!

    Welcome to planDisney, the most magical place on the internet! I am so glad you decided to stop by and ask us this magical question today, as the Walt Disney World Resort has become an influential place and home for cheerleaders worldwide. Some of the events hosted at the Walt Disney World Resort are absolutely spectacular, and I love that you are looking to bring the Disney magic to others! 

    The Walt Disney World Resort has many incredible opportunities for middle and high-school students. One of these incredible experiences is the Varsity Spirit Spectacular. As a part of this program, hundreds of high school cheerleaders and dancers get the once-in-a-lifetime chance to walk right down the middle of Main Street USA. The selected performers are then treated as honourary Cast Members and work with professional coordinators and technicians. A quick Google search should lead you to their website and more information. However, since the next event is still in its early planning stages, limited information is unfortunately available. For that reason, I would suggest keeping an eye on the Varsity and ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex websites, where more information might be released closer to the event!

    Wow, Ashley, what an honour it would be for a young student to perform at the Walt Disney World Resort, especially during its 50th anniversary! The best part is that not only do the students get to perform, but you also get enough time to enjoy the theme parks as well! And during the World's Most Magical Celebration, there is so much to discover. Personally, I would highly recommend checking out some of the new entertainment available during the 50th anniversary, such as Mickey's Magical Friendship Faire and the 50th-anniversary Cavalcade. In addition, two new nighttime spectaculars have premiered at Magic Kingdom Park and EPCOT in October of 2021 as a part of the 50th-anniversary celebrations. Indeed, although Disney Enchantment and Harmonious have only been with us for a few months, they have already become some of my favourite shows! And no Walt Disney World vacation is complete without the treats. You can find specially-themed treats and meals throughout the Walt Disney World theme parks and Resort hotels, making your stay that much more special. My favourites were the EARidescent mini nachos from Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe at Magic Kingdom Park, but the Tropical Serenade at Aloha Isle Refreshments might just steal the crown!

    I hope this was helpful, Ashley, and that you and your Ohana will be able to visit and perform at the Walt Disney World Resort real soon! If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your next trip, or if you have other questions about the various performing programs available at the Disney Parks, please don't hesitate to reach out. You've got a friend in us, Ashley!

    Have a magical day,
