A new, fan-friendly event is coming to Walt Disney World Resort just in time for Labor Day weekend – the unofficial end of summer.
The Labor Day Fan Zone – taking place Sept. 1-2 inside the Visa Athletic Center at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex – is an interactive fan festival featuring high-energy music by a popular DJ, food and beverage options, event merchandise, vendor booths, character greetings and big-screen televisions showing various sporting events. The event runs 7:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m., both days.
It’s going to be a busy weekend at the sports complex, so the Labor Day Fan Zone provides a nice way for people to relax and have some fun in between other activities. Access to the Labor Day Fan Zone is included in the admission price to ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. The sports complex admission price for Adults and kids who are 10+ is $18.50; the admission price for children ages 3 – 9 is $13.50.
More than 260 athletes from 43 teams – including five from the U.S. Virgin Islands and five from Puerto Rico – will participate in the Disney Labor Day Baseball Classic, Aug. 31-Sept. 3.
Nearly 4,400 boys’ and girls’ soccer players from 270 teams around the country will be competing in the Disney Soccer Showcase Qualifier, Sept. 1-3. This event is the precursor to the prestigious Disney Soccer Showcase events later this year, nationally regarded as the top youth soccer tournament in the country, attracting hundreds of college coaches looking for top recruits.
Champions from each division of the Disney Soccer Showcase Qualifier earn automatic selection into the Disney Girls’ Soccer Showcase (Nov. 22-25) and the Disney Boys’ Soccer Showcase (Dec. 27-31).
It should be an exciting Labor Day weekend, all around. For more information about upcoming events at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, visit www.espnwwos.com.
