The NFL Pro Bowl Experience returned to ESPN Wide World of Sports at Walt Disney World Resort Jan. 24-27, during 2018 NFL Pro Bowl Week. New activities to this year’s Pro Bowl Experience included some of the same challenges that AFC & NFC Pro Bowlers competed in during the Skills Showdown, such as: Kick-Tac-Toe, in which three footballs must be kicked in a row on a giant tic-tac-toe board, and the Best Hands competition to catch as many different passes as possible.

Free to all guests, the football festival included interactive games and activities such as:

  • 40-Yard Dash: Race down the field against your opponents and virtual NFL players on a giant 40-yard long LED wall.
