Disney to Sponsor Orlando Magic Basketball and Offer Perks for Walt Disney World Passholders

The NBA has announced that they will go through a 3-year trial where companies will be able to sponsor uniforms for the different NBA teams.  Disney has now announced that Walt Disney World will be the sponsor for the Orlando NBA team, the Orlando Magic.  The Disney logo will be proudly displayed on the jerseys of each of the players, located on the front left shoulder of the uniform.  Not only will the Disney name be present with the Magic team, but there will also be perks and other benefits available for Walt Disney World Annual Passholders.


Disney Annual Passholders will have the opportunity to get special seating at games at the Amway Center.  You will even be able to renew your passes or purchase new passes from Amway Center, too, while you are already there.

This is what George A. Kalogridis, President of the Walt Disney World Resort, said, “At Walt Disney World Resort, we naturally believe in all things magic and are happy to support our hometown team.  This long-term relationship symbolizes our shared focus of solidifying Orlando as a world class city for sports.”

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
