If you're looking for a fun place to catch the "big game" on TV while you're at Walt Disney World, why not head on over to the ESPN Club located at Disney's Boardwalk Resort. Though Disney has closed affiliate restaurants around the country this ESPN Club continues to be a fun and happening place for sports fans in the Orlando area.
The decor inside the ESPN Club is a sports fan's dream with every spare inch of the place not holding a television bedecked with jerseys, equipment, and team banners. All forms of sports memorabilia are on display and will surely delight. Creating an attraction all it's own there's even a live studio inside the restaurant where Mike and Mike in the Morning do their ESPN show.
You won't have to miss a minute of your game because over 100 TV monitors in the bar, restaurant, and even in the bathrooms run current ESPN sports, classic sports, all day long. If you want your own personal TV at your table, be sure to grab a seat in the bar area and you can tune in to every second of coverage.
If you do plan on showing up for game day, be sure to get there early! The ESPN Club fills up fast with loud and rowdy sports fans ready for some fun!
The ESPN Club isn't going to win any awards for it's haute cuisine, good old American pub grub is what you'll get here, but our friends at the Disney Food Blog say that you're sure to find something on the menu you'll love. Our thanks goes out to them for exculsive permission to use their photos. Disney Food Blog highly recommend the Buffalo wings if you don't mind getting messy. It's a lot like a great tailgate party that never ends. If you plan on having a meal here, it's one table service credit on your Disney Dining Plan.
The drink menu here includes a wide range of beers and some fun specialty cocktails like "The ESPY" made with Absolut Mandrin, peach schnapps, orange & pineapple juices, Sprite for $9.25. If tequila is more your style, give the classic MVP Margarita made with 1800 Silver and agave nectar a try for $10.25.
The ESPN Club has a boisterous atmosphere, but the Frommer's Guide regales it for great service. It's not a lounge to chill out in but it's guaranteed fun for the sports fan in you.
