Best Sports Bars at Disney World

The best sports bars in Walt Disney World are filled with fans from around the world, and it gets loud and incredibly exciting! You’re not in Kansas anymore Toto, surrounded by like-minded fellow fans who are die-hard Cheeseheads!

We’ve found a few cozy spots, a couple mainstream locations and just some of the best spots on property to experience a sporting event on the big screen!


The Boardwalk is packed with nightlife, great food…and a ton of TV screens! The ESPN Club falls into the category of “Gotta Check it Out” if you’re a sports fan with their 100 tv screens, classic American pub-style food and classic ESPN branded experiences and events. Downfall? Because it’s not really a secret, you’re going to be with everyone else who googled where to watch the Big Game on the Big Screen!

Superbowl Tip: Premium reserved seating sits at around $100 cover per person. Call 407-WDW-Dine (407-939-3463) for reservations and last minute cancellations.

Disney Springs is home to options, and the one that we’ve come to know and enjoy is Splitsville. Not only for the bowling (because that’s worth it right there) but more for their ability to adapt to the game-of-the-week! Private events have taken over the traditional “show up and wait” mentality, so make sure that you’re keeping in touch with their staff if you’re planning ahead.


Want to make an ADR on and not have to worry about a bar-atmosphere? Well, your best bet may be Shula’s Steak House at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort (in between EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios). Steak and football? Talk about the best pairing!


Beer, nachos, burgers and tvs! Talk about the recipe for a game day!

Who needs to be in a crowded bar to enjoy a game? In fact, some of our favourite spots on property to watch things like the SuperBowl, NHL Stanley Cup or the NBA Finals are with a small group of friends at a Walt Disney World Resort Pool Bar. Just be cognizant of the fact that a few of the spots may not have televisions and that you’re close to a pool with other guests who may be louder than you’d typically like during a 4th and goal!


Order some pizza, grab some candy and drinks from the gift shop and hunker down for a relaxing experience. Remember, you don’t always have to be out in the thick of things with drunk and rowdy crowds to truly enjoy a sporting experience! With technology today, you can stream seamlessly with sound-blocking headphones and you’ll never be happier!
