Two full rosters of the NFL’s best players from the 2019 season are in town this week for Sunday’s Pro Bowl at Camping World Stadium in Orlando.
But the fun has already started at ESPN Wide World of Sports — and there’s no reason why you can’t be a part of it, despite the un-Florida like weather.
The NFL Pro Bowl Experience runs through Saturday, giving fans their won NFL festival and a level of access to players and events fans never get during the regular season. So don’t let this week’s chilly weather keep you inside — after all, this is football weather! Just ask someone from a northern football town like Green Bay, Detroit or Buffalo.
Best of all, it’s free to attend, even the parking. Just be sure to register at the kiosk at the front of the practice fields to get your NFL OnePass in order to get the most out of the experience.
From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., football fans of all teams — imagine an event where Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles fans all get along — including kids and adults who look to act and play like kids can also test their own football skills in an interactive fan zone.
Separate stations allow fans to check out their 40-yard run times, and run against the Tennessee Titans’ Derrick Henry, practice throwing, catching and kicking. If you’d rather just watch the best in the business do it, the NFC and AFC squads will be practicing during the week, which you can watch live.
It’s at Disney, so of course there’s concessions and a myriad of Pro Bowl-inspired gear like replica game jerseys, hats and other apparel, pins and the like are for sale. Pro Bowl games tickets are also available at the Experience.
