Volunteering at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex

Sports Enthusiast positions are available on Friday and Saturday.  Positions are available for Gymnastics (Saturday only), Powerlifting, Softball, Meals, Opening Ceremonies, and Healthy Athletes.

There are a finite number of volunteer positions available and they will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.  Anyone who is not pre-registered and arrives during the Fall Classic will be turned away.  Having more volunteers than what is required is not beneficial to Special Olympics or the volunteer’s experience.

Family Information

ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex is a very large facility and guests should anticipate a fair amount of walking, in order to get to the competition and special event venues. For guests needing wheelchairs: you should plan on bringing your own (if you have one), or you may borrow one from Disney for the day. Chairs can be picked up at the main entrance (top of ramp) and you must leave a photo ID, which will be returned upon return of the chair.

Families and spectators may purchase food and/or beverage at an array of kiosks throughout the Sports Complex, including a quick service restaurant near the main entrance.  There is no fee for parking at the Sports Complex.
