    For the past few years I've thought a "regional" style competition should happen for all teams with bids to compete and then only the top portion of each division actually go to worlds, almost like the US trials/prelims type of thing.


    But I know it doesn't really work logistically because at that point how far in advance does it need to be to allow for booking flights/accommodation etc (but wouldn't it be nice if this part was covered by USASF ;))

    Walt Disney World is home to around 68000 hotel rooms, Disneyland has around 3600. Not saying Disney is the end all be all for cheerleading, but I wouldn't assume Disney has the availability just because they're Disney.

    That's just looking at Disney owned properties, though - there are over 20,000 hotel rooms in Anaheim (a small percentage of which are owned by Disney, I actually thought it was less than you listed), so it's still plausible to host Worlds. Transportation would be an issue but could be figured out, and since traffic in Anaheim isn't nearly the nightmare it is in Orlando, it could actually be doable to just Uber everywhere. Now something as large as Summit would never fit and should definitely stay in Disney World, but there is absolutely no reason a World Championship shouldn't actually move around the world.

    There are events far larger than Worlds (even with international access) held in places other than Orlando, Florida. I am not holding my breath for it to change, but the idea that is somehow uniquely qualified to host the event seems silly to me.

    I tend to think that there are multiple reasons for Orlando. One, sheer amount of hotels and food facilities. Two, International Airport access which allows direct flights not only from the US, but Internationally, as well. Three, Disney is Internationally friendly from a translation standpoint, Disney has translators and translating devices available. Four, is mass transit availability around Disney. Five, it is a International destination, which may not mean much to those of us that have been to Disney multiple times, but it does to people that are traveling abroad. Six, Orlando is very reasonably priced for hotels and food.

    McCormick Place-Chicago
    Orange County CC-Orlando
    Las Vegas CC-Nevada
    Georgia World CC-Atlanta
    New Orleans Morial CC-Louisiana

    The above are the top five US Convention Centers. For Cheersport Nationals, the GWCC is already expensive and crowded. Does anyone know if World's and Summit are bigger, smaller or about the same as Cheersport?

    Worlds is significantly smaller. Summit is still a lot smaller as well. Though Summit is over 4 days, there are around 500-600 teams each day (less on Thursday), where Cheersport has over 1000 teams each day.

    Hotels are soooooo much more expensive at CS! And gotta say...I love that Summit and World’s aren’t STP. Teams from everywhere can choose housing tailored to their specific situation and budget.

    I agree. It costs me much less to go to Worlds than NCA.

    Agree we got a beautiful house for 8 families at Worlds. I spent less than $125 on food for the 5 days as we just stayed at house and enjoyed the community amenities instead of going out to a restaurant. House was great price too split between us all.

    It’s supposed to be. But I believe it was last year too but no teams entered the division so we’ll see!

    Yup. It's one of the new divisions this year. Didn't exist last year

    That being said more teams compete at wide world of sports than at CS, just spread out over a longer period between summit, D2 summit, worlds, and ICU. When you factor in HS and college nationals WWoS is the biggest cheerleading venue in the world I’m sure, just spread out over a large period of time.

    Oh my bad! I read somewhere they tried to have that division last year but there wasn’t any interest. I think it’ll be mostly European teams which will be cool!
