Sample Itinerary for Disney USA School Football Tours
Depart from UK airport bound for Orlando International Airport. On arrival you will be met by a member of the Activ4 School Tours destination team and taken to the Colonado Springs Resort which is central for both ESPN Wide World of Sport and the theme parks.
Team registration and coaches meetings will be held during the day, and over at the ESPN Wide World of Sport there will be a few famous faces. Each team will receive a commemorative match ball. Then in the afternoon, why not take advantage of your theme park tickets? Which of 4 Theme Parks in Walt Disney World Resort will you choose?
The serious business begins as the tournament gets underway with the competition group stages. All fixtures are played at ESPN Wide World of Sport; the 220 acre complex includes 9 purpose built venues and hosts numerous amateur and professional sporting events throughout the year. After you have played you can opt to visit a theme park or perhaps a waterpark.
It’s another early start as the group stages progress. The tournament has a one game per day policy so you can be sure you’re in action in yet another hectic day of sport. You may have caught highlights of yesterday’s game or that of your opponents on TV in the hotel last night, so you can be fully prepared for today’s match.
It’s semi-final day which means that the pressure feels like it has been ramped up a notch or two. Hopefully you will have made some friendships with other teams. So you will want to watch a match or two. Many teams head for the parks in the evening where they can enjoy the rides and maybe even see the firework show.
Its finals Day! ESPN will be covering it on ESPN 3 and as with the tournament in general, both the players and the coaches are made to feel like ‘Pro’s’. The set up and the media coverage mean that this football experience is second to none. The photo opportunities will mean that you will need a bigger notice board when you get back to school!
Unfortunately all good things come to an end and today is departure day. Teams from the UK often opt to leave the hotel early and stop off at the shopping mall on the way to the airport. All spent up and it’s on to the airport for the overnight flight back to the UK: tanned, happy and hopefully victorious!
The tour officially ends when you get back to the UK, but with a trip of this magnitude we are sure that it will live long in the memory…
