Don’t Miss the Big Game: The Best Places to Watch Sports in Disney World!

We have a lot of big-time professional and college games coming up this fall and winter — not to mention the Olympics Games next summer! Pretty soon we’ll be watching classic rivalries, conference championships, and 30+ bowl games; the NHL and NBA seasons will kick off; and the NFL will finish out its season and head toward playoffs. And this is all before we talk about college basketball, which closes with March Madness just as MLB is opening their spring training season!

Even Mickey and Minnie Love Sports!

Phew — we’re tired just thinking about all of that! Where’s our water boy? But the bigger question is: with SO MANY games to watch, where do we watch them at Walt Disney World?

Turns out there are quite a few places in the World where you can catch the game (along with a drink and meal!).


We’ll get the obvious one out of the way! This Boardwalk Inn fixture is home to dozens of tv screens in the dining room and bar (not to mention in the restrooms!!). You should be able to find your team on one of the TVs while you enjoy a drink along with apps and a meal.


Depending on the outcome, you can either celebrate your victory or drown your sorrows in an ice cream from ESPN’s neighbor, Ample Hills Creamery!

Coronado Springs’ Rix Sports Bar and Grill

With a name like Rix Sports Bar and Grill, the recently re-imagined Rix Lounge in Coronado Springs can be your new game-watching destination.

The menu is similar to any sports bar. You’ll find burgers, sandwiches, apps, and (of course) drinks here. Plus, at half time or when the game is over, you can check out the new Gran Destino Tower and get an after-battle gin tonic at Barcelona Lounge!

Yacht Club’s Crews Cup Lounge

The Yacht Club’s Crew Cup Lounge is home to several TVs that are usually broadcasting the big game. This is not large, so be sure to get there before the game to nab a table or chair so you don’t miss the game.

In addition to being a cozy place to watch the game you can nosh on those prime rib sliders on the Yachtsman Steakhouse‘s delicious onion rolls!

Splitsville Luxury Lanes

Disney Springs’ Splitsville is home to an outdoor bar, numerous indoor bars on two floors, and of course lots of TV screens!


Plus you can even bowl while watching the game as you enjoy a drink out of a souvenir cup shaped like a bowling pin! That’s a Disney-fied hat trick!


NBA Experience

You can check the score and follow your NBA team on the screens at the recently-opened NBA Experience. If you want to be a part of the action, be sure to check out the NBA Experience itself — learn about our opening day experience!
