Disney has been involved with Special Olympics Florida for a long time, so the involvement of Disney Live Entertainment in this year’s Special Olympics Opening Ceremony is nothing new. Many of the state events or local events for the Special Olympics have been staged at Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, and Disney has also “included additional sponsorship and in-kind support for the USA Games”.

Disney will also be carrying on with its usual volunteer efforts during the summer games, with Cast Members and volunteers from the community stepping up to help out the crowds supporting the athletes who are competing.

Guests who are interested in learning more about the Special Olympics in Florida and the plans that Disney Live Entertainment has for the Opening Ceremony of the summer games are encouraged to keep checking back on the Disney Parks Blog as June draws closer. We’ll be keeping an eye on these plans as they develop here at Disney Fanatic, too!
