NFL Pro Bowl Week is finally here, which means some of the biggest stars in the NFL will be buzzing all around Walt Disney World Resort. And there are several opportunities for you to get involved in the fun with Pro Bowl events happening across the resort.
The fun begins Wednesday at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, where NFL fans are invited to get a close glimpse of their favorite NFL players during AFC and NFC team practices. The practices, which will be held Wednesday through Saturday, are free and open to the public, but fans can register for priority access here.
In addition to catching some of the NFL’s marquee players on the practice field, you can also attend the NFL Pro Bowl Experience, a family-friendly football fan festival at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex with interactive games and activities. There’s also the “taste of the town” tailgate which brings food trucks filled with selections from Disney’s theme parks and its best restaurants right into the center of all the action. Fans interested in exclusive access to Pro Bowl content and events should register for the NFL Fan Mobile Pass here.
At Epcot, football fans can earn a one-of-a-kind finisher medal at the inaugural NFL Pro Bowl 5K Run on Saturday morning. Spots are still available – register here.
At Disney Springs, you’re invited to a Pro Bowl Bash where NFL cheerleaders and team mascots will take over Disney Springs Marketplace on Saturday, from 4 – 7 p.m. ESPN Radio/ESPN2’s “Mike & Mike” show will broadcast live from Disney Springs on Thursday and Friday, from 6 – 10 a.m. ESPN’s “NFL Live” will also broadcast live from Disney Springs on Thursday and Friday, from 3 – 4 p.m. The broadcasts are open to the public, but seating is limited. Who knows, you may even see some of your favorite NFL players there too.
And at Magic Kingdom Park on Friday afternoon, four Pro Bowl team captains will take a trip down Main Street, U.S.A. during a special Pro Bowl parade with Mickey and his pals. If you can’t make it out for the parade, look for photos and video from it here on the Disney Parks Blog.
