Report from ESPN The Weekend

Travel reporter Dewayne Bevil from the Orlando Sentinel reports back from the first day of ESPN The Weekend at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and gives some good advice.

+ Fans come dressed in team gear. Football jersey are dominant. I saw an entire extended family of 10 all decked out in Pittsburgh Steelers wear, but almost every NFL team was represented on someone (Didn’t notice any Chiefs, Titans or Falcons, for instance). Next year I’m going to bring a list of the teams and check off whenever I spot one — It’s a theme park version of license-plate bingo!

+ It appears to be a very father-and-son driven event. That combo was much more evident than on other days at the park.

Go read his column for more. I’m a sports fan, and particularly like ESPN, but I haven’t yet been to an ESPN The Weekend. That will change tomorrow. I plan to drop in for a few hours.
