  • May I bring a spouse or my family to the WWA Show?

    Yes! We know that our host venue, Walt Disney World® Resort, is a popular spot to bring your family along with you to the WWA Show. So, we offer a Spouse/Companion Package for non-industry employed spouses or significant others, as well as a Child Package for children 18 and under who are accompanying their parents to the show.

    The Spouse/Companion Package costs $139 and is for non-industry employed spouses or significant others. Fees include access to the 2-day trade show, one buffet lunch on the day of your choice on the show floor, the opening General Session, the Annual Reunion Party at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park and the Island H2O Live! Party.

    The Child Package costs $19 and is for children 18 years of age or younger who are not working in the industry. Fees include access to the 2-day trade show, the Opening General Session, the Annual Reunion Party at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park and the Island H20 Live! Party.
