Wondering where you can catch the Big Game on Sunday, February 5, 2017 at Disney World? We've got several great options for you.
ESPN Club - Boardwalk Entertainment District
This is going to be everyone's default choice for the Big Game so plan on the ESPN Club being a very packed house. The restaurant is located in the Boardwalk Entertainment District at the Epcot Resort area and it does not accept advance reservations - they recommend arriving an hour prior to game time for the best chance of being seated before the game.. They do offer VIP seating reservations for $100 per person and that does include any good item on the menu, excluding tax and gratuity . Parking is limited so Disney resort guests are encouraged to use Disney transportation.
Splitzville - Disney Springs (formerly Downtown Disney)
Splitzville will have the game on with sound up the second floor and it will be business as usual. You can make an advance reservation, subject to availability, online through your "My Disney Experience" app or by calling 407-WDW-DINE. You cannot specifically request the second floor during the reservation process so that will happen first-come-first-served at the podium. This is a huge venue with lots of tables but expect a crowd.
Rix Lounge - Disney's Coronado Springs Resort
Rix Lounge, at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort has not yet announced their 2017 plans. In 2016, they had a special event for the Big Game. The cost was $25 per person and the buffet includes Italian and turkey club submarine sandwiches, beer braised brats with sauerkraut and mustard on pretzel hoagies, tailgate chili, sea salt chips with habanero chili salsa, a nacho bar, and BBQ riblets. Beer bucket specials will also be offered. The doors opened at 3PM and the buffet started at 5PM. This is event became adult only (age 21 & up) at 9PM but families were welcome prior to that. Free parking or use Disney transportation - take a bus to either Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios and then catch a bus to Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. This is a little off the beaten track and, as of today, they don't have the event posted on their website so crowds may be lower here.
The game will most likely also be playing on the TVs in the other Disney hotel resort food courts and lounges.
John T's Lounge - Hilton Hotel at Disney Springs
