Pro Bowl Week is only about a month away from arriving at Walt Disney World Resort and now we know many of the NFL superstars who will be coming to Orlando for the big game.

Among the Pro Bowl players recently announced are New England quarterback Tom Brady, Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers, New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and Dallas rookie sensations Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott. These are just a few of the 88 all-star players selected to the AFC and NFC team rosters.

Pro Bowl Week starts Tuesday Jan. 24 and the first stop for these marquee players will be ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Disney. The first class sports venue will host many of the Pro Bowl Week activities, including AFC and NFC team practices; youth football events; a free, family-friendly football-themed festival – NFL Pro Bowl Experience; among others.

This site will also host the taping of “The Pro Bowl Skills Showdown,” pitting the AFC and NFC All-Stars against each other, which will air on ESPN on January 26 at 7:00p.m. EST. Additional exciting activities are planned for Disney Springs and Epcot, which will be the site of the Pro Bowl 5K run.

Perhaps the most magical event will happen on Friday, Jan. 27 at Magic Kingdom Park where Pro Bowl players, NFL cheerleaders and various community groups will take part in a celebratory parade down Main Street, U.S.A.

If you’re visiting Walt Disney World Resort January 25-28, Pro Bowl Week is an experience you will not want to miss! Tickets for the game are still available at www.nfl.com/probowl where you will also the star-studded rosters of the AFC and NFC teams. For more information on Pro Bowl Week, visit espnwwos.com.


  • ! Do you need extra tickets to see theprobowl parade at Magic Kingdom

  • What time is the parade?

  • When are they going to announce any times? Very hard to plan. We are coming from out of state and have no idea what time anything is being held. It is just not that far off and we don’t even know when the parade is or what is going on at Disney Springs. This is very frustrating. Not the norm for Disney, all my vacations there have had such great communication. Too bad that cannot be said for the pro-bowl week!

  • For being an annual passholder, there is a promo code under the “Events and Special offers” page of my passholder account that gives us admission to a “VIP practice”prior to the actual Pro Bowl. I’ve purchased my tickets almost 2 weeks ago and still have not received any information on this practice and I would like to accommodate my work schedule so that I can make sure that I can attend this event.

  • I’m running the Pro Bowl 5K- any word if there will be any players, mascots etc out on the course?

  • Any word as to when the parade will start?

  • Awesome! Do you need extra tickets to see the parade at Magic Kingdom and what time will that start?
