    Hi Brett, we're going to DW in Nov of '09 and I wanted to know how the ESPN Club was? Is it like a big sports arcade, or is there other things to do there as well?


    The "big sports arcade" you describe sounds more like an "ESPN Zone" than the "ESPN Club" at WDW's Boardwalk.  I would describe the ESPN Club as a very large and complete sports bar/dining establishment.  The Club is a single-story building divided into a dining area ("Sports Central"), a bar area ("Sidelines"), and an arcade/store area ("The Yard").  The bar and dining areas have over 100 video monitors, including a 90 sq foot projection screen in the bar, and a 108 sq foot video wall in the dining area.  The arcade area is similar to other basic arcade areas in many of the WDW resorts -- it is NOT very similar to the highly interactive / virtual reality sports themed games that you find at an ESPN Zone.

    If you are looking to catch almost any live televised game from across the globe, it is a good bet that the ESPN Club will have a satellite feed of the game.  Be sure to arrive at the ESPN Club at least an hour before any popular sporting event begins, as the lines outside can be long, and they don't move very fast once the big games begin.

    If you are interested in seeing photos of the ESPN Club, you can find some helpful ones over at www.wdwinfo.com (search for "ESPN Club")

    Hope that helps you get a better idea of what the ESPN Club is (and isn't).  ºoº
