Is the Pro Bowl on ABC this year?

Thanks, I was searching for what exactly it was all about and why Brees, Roethlisberger and Russel Wilson all decided to go to Disney World at the same time ;)

Cool that Disney hosts this but I agree that it's misplaced both on the calendar and the map. I don't see where anyone cares any more that this is held before the Super Bowl, and Orlando does seem like a major downgrade from Hawaii, regardless of the previous attendance there. The game itself is pointless and risks injury, so why not just go with the awards ceremony they already have and call it a day? As much as I love Disney, I still don't see a reason to watch this game, even if I happened to be in Orlando for it. To each their own though.

Explanation for Patriots fans... the Pro Bowl is an event that features players on those other teams that don’t go to the Super Bowl every year.

And it's the park you want to avoid going to that day..

Lots of people did, because the players who were invited actually showed up

I'm with you ----I could careless about the NFL- even less when they disrespect the flag and they are paid far more than they are worth

The players are already rewarded handsomely. And the stadium in Hawaii was barely half full. Last year seemed like a big a success. Plus many of the players have families and I’m sure their kids would vote for a week at Disney over a week in Hawaii. I do agree it should be moved to after the Super Bowl, though. If the game ever did end, I really wouldn’t care. Even though they don’t play hard, there’s still and injury risk.

But who really would watch after the Super Bowl?

Very true...It's just I've been coming in Jan/Feb for the past 6 or so years and it wasn't that bad with the Cheerleading competitions during the time they use to take over the Indy stunt show arena adding the mix of tour groups and the Super Bowl weekend when the winners come to MK it was not that bad except the middle of the week and family's start coming for the weekend...I'm a solo traveler and I like my time there to be the best it can be..

That's fine, but I'm sure if you decided to visit the parks during these events then you won't be negatively impacted, as these all take place at either Wide World of Sports and Disney Springs. I don't think it's fair to expect everything that TDO does to appeal to each of our personal interests.

Even when I didn't watch football much, I really looked forward to the skills competitions. It was some incredible stuff, and it really showed why these guys were professional athletes.

I'm not a fan of sports......So it's doing nothing for me...
