Disney World Resort and ESPN Wide World of Sports Team Travel

Being a Team Mom is no easy feat. There is a lot of organization involved along with a lot of new parent hand holding plus dealing with a mixture of personalities. It gets even more stressful when you are the Team Mom of a traveling team. However, Disney has made it much easier for Team Moms to actually take a deep breath, let someone else assist with all of the plans and perhaps even enjoy themselves for a moment or two. Now I am not saying that being a Team Mom is not enjoyable. I love doing it but the stressful component I could do without.

Revolutionizing Team Travel with Walt Disney World Resort & ESPN Wide World of Sports

More than 35 million kids participate in youth sports across America each year and that often means traveling to out-of-state tournaments, which can be a logistical nightmare for many parents, coaches and team moms.

Some companies are beginning to tackle the problem and nowhere is that more evident than at Walt Disney World Resort where ESPN Wide World of Sports is creating innovative solution-oriented initiatives and programs for young athletes, parents, team moms and coaches that are making youth sports travel easier for the millions of kids nationwide and beyond who are competing in soccer, volleyball, baseball, cheerleading, etc.
