Where to watch the Super Bowl at Walt Disney World

The ESPN Club is a fantastic place to watch the Super Bowl. It is located near Disney’s Boardwalk hotel, along the Boardwalk itself. They have almost 100 TVs/monitors and I don’t think there’s a bad seat in the house. It is a full-service restaurant and bar and during big sporting event it can get very crowded. You don’t have to make reservations, but we strongly suggest it. The ESPN Club also have a VIP Premium Package for the Super Bowl.  The VIP Premium Package is $85 for Adults and $35…

Downtown Disney/Disney Springs Parking

The makeover of Downtown Disney to Disney Springs is well underway. We have mostly avoided that area over the past few visits as much as possible, because parking has been a problem during the construction. Since the first parking garage is partially open we thought that we would venture over to T-Rex for dinner back in November. Parking was a mess, and it doesn’t look like that is going to change anytime soon.  We have friends that are currently there now and they said it is still a mess. My…
