On-site Info – Hotel

Because this is a USA FH sanctioned tournament, all players must go through the team’s group travel (set up through USA FH’s travel agency) for their hotel accommodations.

Anthony has reserved a block of team rooms through USA FH for players and coaches:

Wyndham Lake Buena Vista Disney Springs Resort Area 
Address: 1850 Hotel Plaza Blvd,
Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830
Phone: (407) 828-4444

Players and coaches will stay together at a team hotel.  This tournament is considered a “stay to play tournament” which means we have to stay at a USA field hockey sanctioned hotel and book our hotel reservations through USA Field Hockey.

If a family member wants to book a hotel room at the team hotel in our reservation block, please contact Coach Anthony ASAP!
