The ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex has hosted a variety of different sporting events over the years.
From NBA games to NCAA tournaments, the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex has seen it all. This year, it’s hosting another event.
If you’re planning a trip to Disney World you’ll need to think about several big things — Where will you stay? How many days will you be there? How will you get there? Do you want to rent a car? What time of the year will you visit? And, perhaps most importantly, what tickets will you buy?
You might be surprised to learn that there’s more that goes into buying tickets than simply clicking “Add to Cart.” There are a few important decisions you and your family need to make prior to purchasing the tickets for your trip. Today we’re breaking down some big things you should consider when deciding what tickets to buy.
Who’s ready to RUN? There are some exciting runDisney events coming soon, like the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend (happening now) and the Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend! But all that athletic activity can really work up your appetite, so you might need a snack after the race!
Whether you’re planning on running or cheering for a family member, Disney’s got you covered with some NEW snacks arriving just in time for the upcoming marathon. Some of them look DELICIOUS, but there’s one snack that’s leaving us with a few questions… .
For over 20 years, there’s been a busy season in December during which some particularly large groups visited Disney World and added to the holiday crowds. All of that is changing in 2021, and 2022 might look quite different in Disney World. Let’s get into it!
Thinking about buying or renewing a Disney World Annual Pass?
There’s been a lot of new information released lately about the updates coming to Disney World’s Annual Pass program, including price changes, new pass options, different blockout dates, and more. Right now, we’re going to break down what you’ll have to pay EXTRA for if you get one of the new Disney World Annual Passes. [Read more…]
Happy Monday everyone!
It’s been a big Disney news day already, with lots of information coming out about Disney World’s new Annual Pass program. We’ve looked at the pricing differences, blockout dates, and how this will affect current Annual Passholders, so now let’s see what’s missing from this new program. [Read more…]
It may be hard to believe, but it has been a FULL year since the Disney World theme parks reopened following its four-month-long closure in 2020 [when this post was originally published]. It’s a unique anniversary many of us wouldn’t have predicted being faced with just a few years ago, but here we are!
Since then, a lot has changed — health and safety policies have been updated drastically to make face masks optional for most guests and Cast Members in many locations, and most social distancing measurements have also been lifted. For all of the things that HAVE returned to Disney World since the parks reopened, there are also a number of things that have STILL not come back.
Last year, the United States Army Training and Doctrine Command announced that the 2021 Department of Defense (DoD) Warrior Games would be hosted for the first time at Disney World’s ESPN Wide World of Sports complex.
If you’re unfamiliar with this event, it celebrates the “resiliency and dedication of wounded, ill, and injured active duty and veteran U.S. military service members” with an adaptive sports competition. DoD features 12 events like sitting volleyball, powerlifting, and wheelchair basketball — and Disney’s participation this year corresponds with the company’s long history of supporting active military members and veterans.
Disney World has a long history of supporting members of the U.S. military.
Disney World holds a flag retreat ceremony every day, Veteran’s Day is significant in the parks, and Disney often offers special discounts to members of the military. And now, Disney World is preparing to host a major military event on its property.
