The Pro Bowl kicks off at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando on January 29th at 8pm which means that Walt Disney World is currently playing host to some of the NFL’s much-loved heroes. To honor their contribution, the Magic Kingdom pulled out all of the stops on Friday, January 27th, in a Main Street U.S.A parade that featured marching bands, cheerleaders, lots of confetti and a special visit from Mickey Mouse himself who was joined by local charities and community groups.
The guests of honor for this event were five Marquee players for Sunday’s NFL Pro Bowl game including: wide receivers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders of the Denver Broncos, tight ends Greg Olsen (Carolina Panthers) and Delanie Walker (Tennessee Titans) and linebacker Ryan Shazier of the Pittsburgh Steelers who took time out of their busy practice schedules at ESPN Wide World of Sports to greet the cheering fans who turned up for this spectacular event.
The five Pro-Bowlers where also joined by finalists for the Don Shula NFL High School Coach of the Year Award as well as families that are being supported by Make-a-Wish Central and Northern Florida and Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS).
The appearance at the Magic Kingdom marks a week -long Pro Bowl takeover at Walt Disney World Resort which includes everything from team practices over at ESPN Wide World of Sports to Pro Bowl themed dance parties at Disney Springs.
The 2017 Pro Bowl will take place at Camping World Stadium on Sunday, January 29th at 8PM and will be televised live on ESPN.
