dining at ESPN

    We are heading to Disney in November and are huge Alabama football fans. We are staying at fort wilderness in a tent so watching in our room is not an option. I know ESPN will show them but it get busy. Any other ideas for where to watch?

    Hi Elizabeth!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. As a Texas A&M Aggie I just have to get my obligatory WHOOP in, but I'll be glad to help you find a spot as a fellow SEC football fan!

    You are correct that ESPN Club at Disney's BoardWalk is definitely going to have the most amount of TVs to watch the game, but it can be crowded and I certainly wouldn't try without a reservation. You'll also likely have a table minimum per person per hour to meet for the length of the game. While my family has never had trouble meeting this, it is something to consider. If you are looking for another location I do have some great recommendations!

    My first would be Splitsville Dining Room at Disney Springs. This is a more laid back place to take in a game, but I would still recommend making an Advanced Dining Reservation to secure your table. You'll have to check the specific dates for your visit but another thing to consider is the Quick Service location within the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. The ESPN Wide World of Sports Grille is only open when the Complex is and admission is required, but being a Quick Service location you won't need a reservation nor have a table minimum. If you have booked a Magic Your Way Package you'll often have a voucher for admission one day anyways. My final, but most versatile recommendation is any of the lounges at Walt Disney World Resort. You'll find one at many of the Resort hotel locations and they usually have several TVs and a laid back environment.
