When it comes to football, no day is bigger than Super Bowl Sunday. Not far behind is Championship Sunday when the fun is doubled with two titanic games. The football party might work or it might be a lot of work. The best way to take in the game takes the work out of the equation, just go to ESPN Zone Downtown Disney in Anaheim and enjoy the football and television smorgasbord.
Having a championship game that matches up Seattle versus New England is going to bring the fans out in all of their glory, which means ESPN Zone is going to be a packed house, but we have the answer for that. ESPN Zone has turned both big game Sundays into their “Ultimate Watch Parties.” What does that mean for you? For only $50 you get a guaranteed seat. $75 just to get a seat? The seat is just the beginning; ESPN Zone has actually added more value to that seat than the $75 that it costs you. In addition to a reserved seat, you also get; a separate entrance to the first game of the day so you don’t have to fight the crowds, your reserved seat in screening room with stadium style seating, a $75 credit towards food and beverage, a $10 game card to head upstairs just in case your team is getting blown and finally 10% off the Studio Store, which is loaded with gear. Just remember, your $50 doesn’t include your tax or gratuity and you are going to find that ESPN Zone has Super Bowl quality servers, so make sure to tip appropriately!
Watching the game is one thing, what you get with ESPN Zone is an experience. The large televisions are so big that you feel as if you are on the fifty-yard line. There are no TV timeouts to slow down the game, if there is a commercial; you just watch another game until yours comes back on. Do you want cheering? You got it! The ecstasy and agony of World Cup fans could be felt and heard and that only scratches the surface of the fandom at ESPN Zone Anaheim. You have Angel and Duck fans that fill Orange County. Dodger fans who will find ESPN Zone is one of the few places around Southern California that actually carries Sports Net LA so you can watch every game. Of course you have the Lakers and Clippers once basketball season rolls around and while the rest of Southern California has another television rights issue to deal with, ESPN Zone carries the Pac-12 network to make sure you can watch any UCLA or USC sporting event. It is hard to cover all of the sports that Southern California is home to, but ESPN Zone has them all. If you want to keep up with your fantasy sports team, ESPN Zone taps into the Disneyland Resort’s free wireless internet access.
ESPN Zone is far from your typical sports bar if that is what is crossing your mind. Comfortable booths and tables that are all in prime time viewing locations, unlike stadiums there is not a bad seat in the house! The experience would have to be highlighted by the individual DreamSeat® leather recliners located at the front of the screening room. You would not feel more at home even in your own house, just get there early as these are a fan favorite.
Last, but far from least is the food at ESPN Zone. It will dominate anything a live game will serve up to you and you are not going to want to put up what comes out of your kitchen against the food that is on the menu at ESPN Zone. This is not your typical game day food, although if you are looking for the dish that was made for watching sports, the cheese fries that are buried in a combination of perfectly crisp fries, bacon, cheddar, mozzarella, and pepper jack cheese and drizzled with ranch dressing would like win an appetizer bracket contest. The wide-ranging menu contains; Grilled Steak Salad, Mahi Tacos, Grilled Salmon and Sun-Dried Tomato Penne and a burger list that will make anyone happy just to get you started! On those days when ESPN Zone opens up early for sporting events you also get the option of the breakfast menu which features a mouth-watering burger topped with a fried egg. There is no better way to start a sports day than biting into a thick juicy burger and having the yolk run down out of your bun, creating a tasty pairing! The only way to complete your visit to ESPN Zone is with the Chocolate Chip Cookie Sundae. This monstrous creation just screams dessert as it contains a chocolate chip cookie topped with vanilla bean ice cream, hot fudge, caramel sauce, and whipped cream. Other than trying to finish it, your toughest task will be trying to get a little bit of each ingredient in every bite. You might want to have your friends join you to try and finish this one off.
What truly separates ESPN Zone from attending a live sporting event, watching the game at home or any other venue is that it has a world of sports games for the whole family to play in the “Sports Arena” on the second level and if that is enough, you have Disneyland® and Downtown Disney® right outside the front doors. If your kids are not into watching the game as much as you are, you can make sure they are having as much as you are by taking them up to the gaming area on the second floor. Air hockey, pop-a-shot, a regulation basketball shooting game, the best arcade games around, boxing, football, a rock wall and much more. Your kids will get tired before they get bored up here and the best part is there are of course televisions everywhere and a bar so you can make yourself at home while the kids are having fun. May sure you get your own game card because all of the games are very adult addicting!
If you and the family are at Disneyland for the day and you need a little break from princesses and lines waiting for rides, lunch or dinner at ESPN Zone is the perfect place to bring the family. If you need your own private break and your family can navigate Disneyland without you for a few hours take a quick stop at ESPN Zone for an appetizer, cocktail, a few innings of baseball and get reenergized. If you are lucky enough to be a Disneyland Annual Passholder, you get 10% of your purchase each time you dine at ESPN Zone Anaheim.
While watching a game in-person still provides a majestic experience, the options that are out there that allow you to avoid the crowds, parking and ticket costs are becoming more enticing. ESPN Zone Anaheim makes you feel as if you are almost at the event and they have so many options to go along with the game that they will change the way you think about how a sporting event should be experienced after one visit.
