Typical Dates: late January

The NFL's annual all star game, the Pro Bowl, had been held in Hawaii for many years. In 2017, however, the Pro Bowl moved to Orlando and has remained in Central Florida. The actual game is played in Camping World Stadium in Orlando, but a few festivities leading up to the event happen in Walt Disney World.

Practices and Events at Wide World of Sports

The official Pro Bowl team practices will be taking place at the Wide World of Sports complex on Walt Disney World property. If you or your family has a favorite player, there's actually a chance at seeing them in person!

The popular NFL Pro Bowl Experience will also be a Wide World of Sports. This is a fan zone where you can take part in many different interactive experiences--all football-related of course.

Crowd Impact

Having the Pro Bowl in Orlando is not expected to have a major impact on crowds in Disney World. Specific events will likely have a minor impact on traffic patterns, but overall it will not increase the crowds significantly at the resort.

The reason we are expecting minor or no impact is because of the large capacity of the parks. Even if everyone who is visiting Orlando for the Pro Bowl comes to Disney World, it would only increase the attendance at the parks that week a small percentage. If you spread that number over the many, many different attractions, it would only mean an increase in wait times of a few minutes. A few minutes per attraction is not enough to drastically change our crowd levels.
