Spend Super Bowl at Disney World
Although the players may say, “I’m going to Disney World!” to celebrate their victory on game day, there’s no need for you to wait until after the game for your Disney vacation. Whether you’re a football fan or not (or if your team didn’t make it to the playoffs this year), there’s plenty to do.
Watch the Game.
Disney’s ESPN Club offers a VIP viewing experience, complete with game-day snacks and drink specials. This is a popular venue, so make sure to get reservations in advance. You can also watch the game in one of the lounges at your resort, or one of the restaurants in Downtown Disney. Many of them will have game-day specials too. Or, if you prefer, you could order some room service and relax in the comfort of your room.
Enjoy the Parks.
If you’re not a big sports fan, or if your party contains a mix of football fanatics and those who couldn’t care less, you should head out to the parks. One advantage of visiting the Disney parks during the Super Bowl is that there are very few crowds. February is one of the least busy months at Disney World, so you won’t have to wait in long lines to go on the rides you’ve been dreaming about. Trust us, the game watchers won’t mind being left alone – they’ll appreciate the uninterrupted viewing.
Celebrate the Victory (or the Peace and Quiet).
On the Monday after the big game, the Super Bowl MVP is the star of a triumphant parade in the Magic Kingdom. So if you can stick around for a long weekend, this is a fun event for the whole family. If you don’t feel up for the (small) crowd this event draws, you could spend the day at one of the other Disney parks, which will likely be even less crowded than they were on game day.
