- the Magic Kingdom® Park that brings a star player from each team on top of a car driving through main street;
- the NBA Shootout between a star from each club and a selected fan, which takes place at one of the Orlando Magic games at the Amway center, downtown Orlando;
- the Florida Cup All Star Game displaying skills from former idols of the game of soccer.
