We're excited it's finally time for Worlds 2018! of fun. Below you will find many travel details and guidelines for the upcoming weekend. Please have this information handy to refer to throughout the weekend. For a complete performance order and competition information please go to FloCheer
The competition will be held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in the Walt Disney World Resort. We will be staying at the Disney All-Star Resort and be using the buses provided by the USASF to shuttle teams and parents back and forth throughout the weekend. It is imperative that all athletes are on time, as it takes a while to get from one place to another.
All athletes must pack uniform, bow and shoes in their carryon bags. If you decide to use the Yellow Luggage tags provided from Disney, keep in mind that your luggage may not show up to your room for hours after your arrival. Put everything you need for that day in your carry on so that you are not without your shoes or practice wear or something necessary for that day. You can also choose NOT to use your yellow luggage tags and just carry your bags to your hotel room yourself.
Everyone traveling and staying at the team hotel will pick up their own room keys, park hopper passes and lanyards for the weekend. If you are sharing a room with another family, the person who will be arriving at the hotel first will pick up the package for the entire room. However, if you did not provide KC Cheer with your flight information the room contact will be under whomever in the room did turn in their flight information. Be sure you communicate with those you are sharing a room with to make arrangements to meet them.

KC Cheer will be enforcing a strict 10:30 p.m. curfew for all team members. This means all athletes must be in their rooms at 10:00 p.m. with lights out by 10:30. This does not mean leaving a park at 10:15 because your curfew is at 10:30. You will not make it back in time. The staff will be strictly monitoring this, and athletes found outside of their rooms after curfew will not compete the next day.
We realize that this event is taking place in Walt Disney World, and are excited to allow our athletes the opportunity to go to the parks and spend time at the hotel pool in their free time if they arrive on Thursday. Please note that the priority for the weekend is to perform with your team and support KC Cheer, and this is not a vacation. There will be no swimming allowed starting on Saturday until after you're finished performing on Sunday. It is imperative that you are on time to all of your team meetings and practices, and adhering to the curfews put in place by the staff. It takes approximately 1 hour to get from a park back to the hotel on a Disney bus, and you cannot get to the Wide World of Sports directly from a park. Please keep this in mind as you plan your days so that you are not late for practices, meet times or curfews.
