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: Lunch at ESPN Wide World of Sports Grill in Disney World

Welcome, Sports Fans, to the ESPN Wide World of Sports Grill!

To clarify before we begin, the ESPN Wide World of Sports Grill is not to be confused with the ESPN Club located on Disney’s BoardWalk. The ESPN Grill is a Counter Service eatery found in Disney World’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex — a place you may be familiar with if you’ve participated in a runDisney event, attended a Major League Baseball Spring Training game here, or visited as a participant or spectator in a sporting event hosted at the facility.

My visits to the Complex stem from being a participant in runDisney races (the Fitness Expos including runner Packet Pickup are typically housed here). Understanding how jam-packed any runDisney race weekend can be — from transportation to and from both the Expo and the races, the events themselves, as well as packing in all the park touring you want to do — it can be convenient to have access to some Counter Service eats at one of your required stops during the trip.

When I went to pick up my race packet for the Inaugural Star Wars 10K, I figured it would be a good time to grab a bite and give Complex visitors an idea of what’s available. After all, if you’re here, you’ve clearly got sports on the brain, so you’d better fuel up :)!

Atmosphere

As a facility that hosts numerous sporting events throughout the year, the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex spans over 230 acres that include playing fields and building facilities. The ESPN Wide World of Sports Grill is located in the Complex’s Jostens Center.

The very first thing you see upon entering are the menu boards and ordering counters, located outside of the main dining area. So you’ll place your order here… [Read more…]
