The NFL Pro Bowl
is coming to Orlando end of January, and while the bowl game itself takes place at the Citrus Bowl, er, Camping World Stadium, Disney World is hosting many of the special events that take place around
the game. The ESPN Wide World of Sports is hosting numerous events and experiences for guests.
After last year’s failure of a Pro Bowl, the most declined Pro Bowl
in NFL history, the league is adding some special events. The NFL Flag & Punt, Pass & Kick Championships were added to the offerings, taking place at the ESPN Wide World of Sports where an NFL Pro Bowl Fan Experience will be housed.
A special Pro Bowl parade will take place at Magic Kingdom
on Friday, January 27th. The parade will feature Mickey Mouse and many of the Pro Bowlers. No time has been set yet for the special ceremony. With this being Disney a 5K race will, of course, be included and numerous other events will take place at Disney Springs and across Disney World during the week of festivities.
The game itself, if you’re not too tired by then, will take place at the Camping World Stadium on January 29 at 8 PM. It will be broadcast on ESPN, which is conveniently owned by Disney. Let’s just hope that ESPN can stop the hemorrhaging of subscribers long enough to help the NFL convince some players
actually to attend the Pro Bowl.
