Tips from the DFB Guide: Where to Watch the Super Bowl in Walt Disney World

The BIG GAME is almost here! We’re talking Super Bowl LI, which takes place this Sunday!!

DFB Guide 2017 Second Edition Cover

There’s only one little problem, though: you’re in Walt Disney World.

Now, normally, that would be all kinds of awesome. But when the New England Patriots clash with the Atlanta Falcons this weekend, we’re betting that there will be lots of you looking to find a TV in time to catch the match.

But where?

Lucky for you, we’re huge football fans too! So we’ve done our research to figure out where the best places to catch the Super Bowl — or any big game, really — are throughout Walt Disney World. And today, we’re here to share them with YOU, just in time for kickoff!

They come to you courtesy of the DFB Guide to Walt Disney World Dining. And if you like what you see, check out our Pre-Order of the 2017 Guide, Second Edition deal: pre-order our latest edition, and get the current edition for FREE, as an immediate download!

The Impossible: ESPN Club at Disney’s BoardWalk

So…here’s the deal. You were planning to head over to Disney’s BoardWalk suuuuper early, and stake out a spot at the bar to watch the Big Game at ESPN Club.

Um, here’s the bad news. Don’t bother.

Seating at this ultimate sports bar (yep, there are even TVs in the bathroom) is at such a premium that they aren’t even accepting walk ups. For the Super Bowl, it’s all premium reserved seating, which comes with a cover of $100 per person. [Read more…]

Review: Ice Cream Flights and Hard Floats at Ample Hills Creamery in Disney World

Ample Hills Creamery arrived on Disney’s BoardWalk in May of this year.

And here’s something you should know: the new Disney location for this Brooklyn-based ice cream company is pretty nice about letting you try samples of their sixteen house-made flavors.

Which is almost a problem. Because choosing between Peppermint Pattie, Cotton Candy, Ooey Gooey Butter Cake, PB Wins the Cup, and the rest  (including the BoardWalk’s exclusive flavor, Sally Sells Seashells) almost gets MORE difficult after you taste them. You just kind of want them ALL.

And that’s where the spot’s Ice Cream Flights come in awfully handy! So we’re back to check out those Flights along with a couple of Hard Floats that hit the scene a little while back.

The Ice Cream Flights are $10.19, and you get to choose six flavors per Flight. It’s a fun way to try several when you just can’t decide. (I mean, sure, they are keen on the samples, but they gotta draw the line somewhere ;) !)

My friend and I grabbed a couple flights so that we could try twelve out of the sixteen flavors. Here are some mini reviews to go along with these mini scoops! (By the way, while “bite-size” is obviously different for everyone, I’d estimate that each scoop gives about four-five bites of ice cream.)
