    Hello! I have reservations for ESPN Club, is this inside a park that I would need tickets for? Also, same question for the NBA Experience in Disney Springs? (have an 8 yo big Basketball fan)

    Hi Catherine!  Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is about to begin!  I’ll be happy to help you with your questions.

    ESPN Club is a restaurant located at Disney's BoardWalk, an entertainment district with shops and restaurants.  No admission is required to access this area, although specific locations, such as Jellyrolls dueling piano bar, may have a cover charge.  Be sure to allow time before or after your meal to stroll along Disney’s BoardWalk and enjoy this beautiful area.  You’ll find some carnival games, and in the evening jugglers or magicians may be performing.  One of my family’s favorite things to do at the BoardWalk is to rent a Surrey Bike and take it for a spin on the path around Crescent Lake.  Afterward, we treat ourselves to an ice cream creation at Ample Hills Creamery or Beaches & Cream Soda Shop.

    I’m sure your basketball fan will have a great time at the NBA Experience!  My own son can’t wait to test out his skills on our upcoming visit.  Tickets are required for the NBA Experience, but no other admission is required to enter Disney Springs.  There are so many great dining locations within Disney Springs; I recommend timing your visit so you can enjoy a meal there as well.  Perhaps you’d like to try the new City Works Eatery & Pour House located right near the NBA Experience.  Don’t forget to allow time to browse the plethora of shops at Disney Springs.  If your son is also a LEGO fan like mine is, take some time to explore The LEGO store and the amazing LEGO sculptures.

    Have a wonderful vacation, Catherine, and please let us know if you have any additional questions.
