During the Thanksgiving weekends at Walt Disney World Resort are a great time to visit due to all of the holiday fun and festive offerings, but sports fans who are visiting during this time will also be able to check out college basketball during the Orlando Invitational tournament. The event takes place at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. Disney Parks Blog confirmed that tickets are now on sale for the event. The 12-game pass tickets can be purchased at Ticketmaster outlets and at the box office for the complex.
The tournament will last for 3 days. During this event there will be 12 basketball games from November 28th through December 1st. The 12 game pass cost ranges from $130 to $150. Single-game tickets will go on sale in October.
