In only a few days a rather big football game will be taking place. Millions will be tuned in to watch football and high-priced commercials. But wait, you are going to be in The Most Magical Place on Earth. How will you watch the game?
Fear not, our Disney Parks Moms Panelists are here to help.
“With all the monitors strategically placed throughout this fun eatery, guests will have no trouble seeing the game while they dine. I have no doubt ESPN Club will be pulsing with energy during the big game.” Jill adds, “however, personally, I would head to either Geyser Point Bar & Grill (if it’s a warm evening), Territory Lounge (if it’s a chilly evening), or Crew’s Cup Lounge to view the game. I enjoy a more intimate football viewing experience than one might experience at a larger establishment.”
“A favorite of mine is Splitsville Luxury Lanes. Here sports fans will find the game, great food and room for a healthy family bowling competition! For those more excited about shopping bags than quarterback sacks, there are so many incredible stores just steps away,” Lauren explained. “If shopping isn’t your style, catch a movie at the AMC Movies at Disney Springs 24. Disney Springs is a great place to spend the day and then enjoy an evening celebrating or commiserating your team’s outcome.”
Non-sports lover? We have got you covered too!
“If you’re into the Big Game just for the commercials, skip the gathering and watch them the next day on the internet. Then, escape the crowds by doing something new!” exclaimed Lindsey P. “While the big gamers collect for cheers and beers, head out to the Resort with your MagicBand to accomplish something on your bucket list. Finally try out that last mini golf course that’s been evading you, or grab both a Dole Whip and a Citrus Swirl so you can debate with your tastebuds as to which one is truly superior. You’ll be a happy adventurer with a little free time and a mission ahead of you!”
“A night to myself at Walt Disney World while my partner’s watching the game?” ask Robyn M. “Yes, please! I would absolutely head over to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, where the ambience at twilight and evening is so magical; the gorgeous neon, park music, and shadowy palm trees set just the perfect tone. I would grab a to-go Peanut Butter & Jelly milkshake from 50’s Prime Time Cafe and stroll the streets, do some shopping and an attraction or two, and end the night with my kind of spectacular – Fantasmic!”
So, football fanatic or football widow, Walt Disney World Resort has all the options one could want for that very special evening on Sunday, February 4!
