    Hello I am hoping to watch Manchester United football match on Saturday April 21st. Will this be shown at espn world of sports? Is it possible to hire a private area? Helen

    Hi Helen!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I know Manchester United fans are die hard so it's not a surprise to me you want to make sure you have a spot to watch the game on your visit to Walt Disney World Resort!

    When I contacted the ESPN Wide World of Sports Grill they did not have their hours yet for the month of April as dining hours fluctuate based on events being held at this time. For Saturday April 21st though there are several events taking place at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex so I'd imagine they'd be open in time for the 10 AM EST game. To double check their times as your date approaches I would recommend calling the Welcome Center at 407-541-5600. If you arrive and the game is not on, just simply request from one of the Cast Members that you'd like to watch and they can easily change the channel for you. Please note that to access the ESPN Wide World of Sports Grill you will need complex admission!

    For private areas, there is the possibility for catered meals or private parties. For more information on this you'll want to contact them directly by visiting the Sports Complex Dining Options page and filling out the Contact Us link under Special Functions.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions!
