You may see a lot of 'spirit' around the Disneyland Resort this weekend as the USA (Untied Spirit Association) cheer competitions come to town. This weekend is the first in a series of cheerleading competitions that will be held in the Anaheim Resort area, most of which will take place across the street from Disneyland at the Anaheim Convention Center. But this weekend, March 3 - 4, the 2012 Junior Nationals will be held at the Hyperion Theater inside Disney California Adventure park. Registration for the events will be held inside the Stage 17 building in the Hollywood Pictures Backlot (Hollywood Land) area as well.
On Saturday, March 3rd, four sessions will be held at the Hyperion, starting at 10:30a - 6:30pm. On Sunday, March 4th, there will be three sessions starting at 10:30a - 4:15p.
This weekend is the first in a series of competitions that will take place in the Anaheim area. The Anaheim Convention Center will host the All-Star Championships on March 17 - 18, the USA Collegiate Championships March 18 - 19, and the big USA Nationals March 30 - April 1st.
If you are planing to visit the Disneyland Resort during these weekends you can expect larger crowds in the parks and booked hotels in the resort area. Also expect some traffic delays, especially along Katella Blvd between Disneyland Dr and Harbor Blvd.
