    Good Morning, My granddaughter is going to be competing at Walt Disney World on FEB 10-12 and I am hearing several different answers on the cost of getting into the competition and to also enter the parks. Are there special ticket prices for these events?

    Hi Teresa,

    Welcome to planDisney! It looks like your granddaughter will be competing in a cheer competition. As a former high school cheerleading coach, I literally can feel the excitement about this cheer competition that is coming up very SOON!!! I took a look at the schedule of events and it brought back so many memories!

    I am so sorry to hear that you are getting different answers. I hope mine does not add to the confusion! First things first, go to the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex link. From there, follow these instructions to find more details on tickets for the event and theme park tickets.

    1. Click on Learn More (bottom of page)
    2. Click on Events and More (top right of page)
    3. Scroll to find the link for the 2024 UCA National High School Cheerleading Championship (February 9-12)
    4. Click on Pricing & Info
    5. Click on Spectators & Fans

    From there, you should see the options. I will say that there is a note that says registration is now closed. However, when I clicked on the Discounted Park Tickets and Event Extras link, there was a note that says theme park tickets can be purchased until January 30, 2024 at 5:00 p.m. Central Time. There is an option for "Need Help Registering" that lists Event Registration Specialists, so click on that link and find the person that would be designated for your granddaughter's school if you have other questions about tickets for the event.

    It also looks as if the hotel packages are sold out. I did call to check with a cast member in Disney Resort Hotel Reservations and she confirmed that you would need to verify resort hotel package availability with the event organizers. After checking with them, if you still need hotel arrangements, I suggest that you take a look at the Special Offers page for the Walt Disney World Resort. When I just searched, there were a few resort hotels with availability with a selected special offer rate. Please note that resort hotel and special offer availability can change at any time.

    Teresa, I hope this helps! With cheer competitions, you will need a little extra pixie dust for your granddaughter, her team, all of the coaches and families. I just sprinkled some and sent a wish to the Evening Star for good measure! 

    Magic and memories,
