    Hi all. Visiting for our 30th time and wanting to go to WWS. Sadly there seems to be nothing on until Nov - is that correct? Always managed to watch something on previous visits. Also cannot find opening hours of the grill and can’t seem to book a table.

    Hey there, Alastair!

    Welcome to planDisney. I'm so glad you've hustled over with your Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question! It looks like you'll be arriving at The Most Magical Place on Earth tomorrow! I'm excited for the opportunity to help you make your visit a grand slam, Alastair. There are so many wonderful things to do beyond the theme parks at the Walt Disney World Resort! Let's discuss how to score some incredible experiences during your upcoming vacation.

    Flag on the play... Did you say this would be your 30th visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!? Now that's a milestone that calls for excessive celebration! Alastair, I understand that you've enjoyed visiting the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex during previous visits. Unfortunately, the complex is only open to Guests during scheduled events. At this time, it doesn't look like there are any events scheduled until later this year, so I'm afraid you won't be able to visit during this trip.

    However, no need to fumble your plans, Alastair. I want to ensure your special visit is a slam dunk, so I'd like to offer some comparable suggestions! It sounds like your travel party is made up of sports enthusiasts. In that case, I recommend checking out one of the terrific miniature golf courses on Walt Disney World Resort property. My family just loves putt-putting at Winter Summerland Miniature Golf! If you're up for more of a challenge, you may enjoy hitting the links at one of the outstanding golf courses on property. Oftentimes, walk-up tee times are available. Guests can even rent clubs and shoes at The Happiest Place on Turf, if needed!

    Alastair, if you enjoy dining at ESPN Wide World of Sports Grill, perhaps you might like trying Rix Sports Bar & Grill at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. It has similar offerings plus lots of TVs, allowing Guests to catch the big game! I know it's likely disappointing that you won't be able to enjoy some of your tried-and-true experiences on this visit, but it's always exciting to try new things, especially for us long-time Disney Parks enthusiasts! You never know when you'll find your new favorite restaurant or experience!

    I hope you've found these suggestions helpful, Alastair. I'm wishing you a home run Walt Disney World Resort vacation and an extra-special 30th visit! If you have any additional questions we can help with, please feel free to stop by planDisney again anytime. We're here to help you make the most of your time at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    See ya real soon,
