    Hi Bret! Just read your answer about the ESPN Club. My son really wants to eat there. I have a ? though... What would you describe as a "big sporting event"? Thursday night football? Worried with no ADRs, it may be hard to get into! Thank


    Amazingly there are some guys out there that would rather watch a football game than hang with Mickey.  Strange, I know, but true. ;-)  So, yes, unfortunately I think you'd find the ESPN Club busy on any night with an NFL game on.  During popular sporting events like this, you'll want to try to arrive at least an hour before the game starts, or you'd likely need to wait in line to get in

    Fortunately there are other dining options at the Boardwalk and nearby in Epcot's World Showcase, in case you find the line is too long at the ESPN Club.  You might even want to consider making a back-up Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR) in a second-choice spot, just in case.

    Good luck, and hope you and your son get to enjoy the ESPN Club.
