There have been many questions regarding AAU Nationals in Disney, however there have not been many confirmations from those families. The deadline regarding AAU Nationals in Disney is Thursday, May 5th. This is a hard deadline, as we have a hard deadline to meet. Please stop at the front desk if you plan on participating. Anyone who has participated in the Rainbow and Love’s Park meet has qualified to attend. If you have not participated in either and would like to still attend, please stop at the front desk so that we can tell you how you can still go.
Please remember that travel and accommodations are the responsibility of the family. Below is information on accommodations that one family has found.
The Disney Caribbean Beach Resort. There are several things to do on the resort which is great if you want to do the trip on a budget and skip parks. Please copy and paste the address in your browser. https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/resorts/caribbean-beach-resort

Choose Option 1 (to book your reservation)
To make it as easy as possible mention that you are coming for the
“2016 AAU Gymnastics Age Group Nationals” and you are with “Wildcard Gymnastics Team”. They will group our rooms close by.
You will receive an email with your confirmation number. You can use this number and link it to “Disney My Experience” on the Disney world website. It takes up to two days for the booking to hit their main system so you will have to wait up to two days to add your reservation to ‘my experience’. (My experience allows you to customize your magic band – which is a bracelet you will use to get in your room or any parks in place of a card – comes free with resort stay. It will also allow you to reserve any sit down dinners at the disney resorts.
If you are flying in you can reserve a free magical shuttle ride from the airport (Orlando International Only) to your resort. You can also use the Disney transportation to get around any where on Disney grounds.
There are many other affordable options. The above is one that one family wanted to share.
Again, please let us know if you plan on attending as soon as possible.
