We are pleased to offer all groups of 40 or more paying passengers the exclusive use of their own 48 or 49 seater coach for the entire duration of the Festival. Groups of less than 40 paying passengers will be allocated a shared coach with another school or club for their travel arrangements for the duration of the Festival to ensure they have no coach under-occupancy charge to pay.
Specifically chosen for its suitability for junior sports teams, Disney's Davy Crockett Ranch offers cabin style accommodation, with each cabin containing one double bed in one bedroom and three or four single beds in a second bedroom. These spacious two-bedroom bungalow cabins can therefore accommodate up to six people (*For school teams it is best to plan your tour arrangements based on five sharing a cabin - for details see the Information Pack).
Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park
All attendees of the International Junior Festival of Football have a three day Hopper Ticket that will provide them with unlimited access to both Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Therefore outside of the time devoted to football, everyone is free to enjoy both Disney Parks, ensuring a packed itinerary throughout your time away.
