Volunteering at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex

There are a finite number of volunteer positions.  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.

Online registration will be available starting on August 27 at 12:00 p.m.

The registration site is operated by TRS, per the Walt Disney World Co.  After registering, if you have any questions or issues, please either contact Volunteer Ambassador Information Line 407-938-3880 or email

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.


Cooler Policy

Guests will not be permitted to carry coolers into ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex except as follows:

  • Each guest may bring in a single cooler of up to one gallon in size for personal use. Coaches may bring a single cooler into the facility of up to five gallons for team use.
  • Guests with special dietary needs (i.e., medical conditions, religious doctrine, etc.) may bring in food for their personal consumption.
  • No glass bottles or alcoholic beverages will be permitted.
  • Lockable storage is not available to store coolers or other personal belongings. Disney’s Wide World of Sports® is not responsible for personal items that are lost or stolen.
