It’s Pro Bowl week for the first time ever in Orlando and Walt Disney World is playing a huge part in the festivities. ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex is hosting the 2017 Pro Bowl Experience. Check out our full list of events around Walt Disney World property.
Here’s a look around ESPN Wide World of Sports this morning.

Overall, hour one of day one seems to be a hit! If you’re in the area and like football (or just want a spot for your kids to burn off some energy), I would swing by ESPN Wide World of Sports for the Pro Bowl Experience. Disney very much has the facilities to host an event like the Pro Bowl and I personally hope Orlando can play host for years to come.
