It’s Football Season in Orlando

Just because Orlando doesn’t have an NFL team does not mean we don’t love and celebrate sports! In fact, we think sports are Magic!

Professional football season is here and it’s in full swing. While your Orlando luxury vacation villa is certainly fully equipped to handle the games on state-of-the-art flat-screened televisions so large you can see them from space, there is nothing like the camaraderie of others to help you cheer on your favorite team. Sure, they may be strangers to you but when they love your team as much as you do, there’s an inherent kindling of spirits.

Maybe you don’t feel like cooking even though you have a gourmet kitchen at your disposal. You are not alone. The game is on and you’re all about it. Time to choose a place to spend the next couple of hours of your vacation that offers the 3 F’s of Autumn: Fun, Food and Football.

I enjoy the festivities of game day myself once in a while, if the Skins or Fins are playing, and here are a few great places near your vacation villa to watch kick-off, enjoy a meal and maybe make a few new friends.

Miller’s Ale House at Champions Gate

Miller’s Ale House (whose motto is: If you have a team, we have a screen) at Champions
Gate offers “All Day Every Day Specials” as well as “Limited Time Specials.” These consist of football-themed menu items with names such as Touchdown Tacos, Blitz Burger and Tailgater (please note it’s tailgater not gator tail…would hate to disappoint those who like the idea of eating gator on game day). Of course there are drinks specials by the glass, bottle, pitcher or bucket. And we all know that nothing screams camaraderie like a big bucket of brews.

Red Robin at Champions Gate

Red Robin is another venue located at Champions Gate. Relatively new to Central
Florida, this tavern offers football with a sideline of juicy burgers. Their gourmet burgers are fire-grilled and served in so many ways, there’s surely something to please everyone. A great variety of appetizers, entrees, desserts and a full bar round out this venue as a perfect place to get your game and your gourmet on! So if your team didn’t win, at least your meal did.


What about ESPN says sports? Everything. So you can imagine what this venue offers sports lovers. It’s pretty much all in the name so I’ll keep this one short and sweet. There are nearly 100 video monitors, each featuring global satellite feeds so you can watch virtually any televised game. There is also a 108-square-foot video wall! If that is not enough for you, there are TVs over every stall in the bathroom. You really love your football, huh? As for food, ESPN Club offers a pub-style menu as well as specialty cocktails and craft beers
on tap. This place is truly a sports lovers paradise and it’s located very near your luxury vacation villa. As the saying goes, too much of a good thing can be wonderful.

Football for all Fankind – Buffalo Wild Wings

As a sports fan, you probably know all about BWW. This one is located conveniently in Kissimmee and offers whatever a football fan could possibly need for a winning game day. Go to their website and peruse “Today’s Lineup” and fantasize about what you will order so you don’t miss a minute of the game. They call themselves the “sports bar for sports fan” and their selection of wings (about 20 flavors) and beer (domestics, imports and drafts) won’t disappoint. Plus, with more than 30 screens for your choice of game, it’s too bad you only have two eyes. Bring the family for an entire day of fun.

NBC Sports Grill & Brew

This place is a game-changer. NBC Sports Grill & Brew offers a unique sports-dining experience unlike anything you’ve seen before. Nearly 100 high-definition screens immerse you in a stream of sports coverage as you drink and dine. Expect much more than your average bar food; a mix of tasty classics and incredible new creations. Plus, with over 100 bottles and drafts to choose from, youre bound to find an ideal pairing. You’ll enjoy local favorites, unique imports, ciders and your favorite team on the big screen. What more could you want? Well, maybe for the Browns to finally win a game…
