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!

UPDATE – ESPN CLUB IS CLOSED

If you’ve been looking forward to the ESPN Club, it’s important to note that this boardwalk sports bar has closed permanently. Most lists for the Best Sports Bars will include it, but that’s because it’s an outdated collection of tips.

SPLITSVILLE

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.

POOL BAR

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!

YOUR RESORT HOTEL ROOM

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!
