FAQs

  • How much does it cost to register for the WWA Show as a park attendee?

    Please note: We will be finalizing pricing for the 2019 WWA Show in the coming weeks. The pricing information found here is a sample taken from our 2018 pricing schedule.

    Our most popular and most comprehensive package option is the Symposium Package. This package includes access to all breakout sessions that are held October 8th-10th, both days of the trade show, lunch served on both days of the trade show, a ticket to the Annual Reunion Party that will take place October 8th, entrance to both Keynote Sessions and entrance to the Opening General Session.

    Here is a summary of pricing on this package for 2018: 

    For members:

    Symposium Package with Hotel Discount: $449* (reflects Early Bird discount and $100 price break for staying at the headquarters hotel, Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort)

    Symposium Package: $549* (reflects Early Bird discount; this package would be selected if you stay somewhere other than a Disney Resorts property)

    For non-members:

    Symposium Package with Hotel Discount: $624* (reflects Early Bird discount and $100 price break for staying at the headquarters hotel, Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort)

    Symposium Package: $724* (reflects Early Bird discount; this package would be selected if you stay somewhere other than a Disney Resorts property)

    *These prices will increase after the early bird deadline passes. In 2018, the early bird deadline was August 17, 2018. As the show is earlier in 2019, the early bird deadline will likely expire earlier as well.
