I know this is an annual event, but I thought I'd bring it to everyone's attention. Even with the official ESPN complex, they're still this event in the park. This from the Disney Parks blog:


Just got a peek at the list of big-time athletes and ESPN personalities coming to Walt Disney World for ESPN the Weekend this year and it’s pretty impressive. There are tons of marquee names on the list this year, including Chad Ochocinco (Bengals), Larry Fitzgerald (Cardinals), LaDainian Tomlinson (Jets), Cal Ripken, Jr., (MLB legend), Karl Malone (NBA legend), Mia Hamm (soccer star), Julius “Dr. J’’ Erving (NBA legend) and Urban Meyer (former Gators coach).

In all, more than 35 athletes and ESPN on-air talent will be at Disney’s Hollywood Studios for the March 4-6 event that’s presented by Dick’s Sporting Goods this year. Check out the complete list of ESPN personalities and sports celebrities expected to attend at (Click on Who’s Coming).

But fans will have much more to do than just see and hear their favorite players and ESPN personalities. There’s an interactive ESPN Sportszone area where fans can test their skills at a wide variety of sports, possibly even against one of the many sports celebs. There will also be daily motorcades with athletes, sports trivia game shows with Howie Schwab (Stump the Schwab) and fan Q&As with athletes.

If you’re a sports fan, is there really any other place you’d rather be? Probably not. So, if you want to get up close and personal with these sports stars, just go to to get tickets. You can get any last-minute additions to the player lineup on Twitter at @DisneySports and search #ESPNWKND.

And don’t forget to bring your “A’’ game!
