The dates have been released for the Atlanta Braves' final spring training season at Walt Disney World.

In September, it was revealed that 2018 would be the team's last season at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.

The Braves decided to not renew their contract with Disney after nearly 21 years of using the facility. The decision came after the Braves received approval for a new complex in North Port, Florida. The reportedly $100 million facility is expected to open in time for the 2019 spring training season.

For their final season at Disney World, the Braves will play 18 home games. The first one is Feb. 26 against the Washington Nationals.

Other notable home games include the Houston Astros, who won this year's World Series championship, on March 8 and the New York Yankees on March 9.

The Braves will play their final home games on March 24 against the Yankees.

In addition, there will be appearances by Disney characters and other in-game entertainment opportunities.
