ESPN Wide World of Sports at Walt Disney World will host the football Pro Bowl Skills Showdown.  This showdown pits AFC and NFC football All-Stars against each other in order to compete in various skills competitions.  The skills competitions will include a variety of different players including linemen, linebackers, defensive backs, quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers from each of the pro bowl teams from the divisions.


The competitions are:

  • Best Hands: Quartersbacks and wide receivers will complete as many successful pass attempts as possible before time runs out
  • Epic Pro Bowl Dodgeball: Exciting games of good old school dodgeball
  • Power Relay Challenge: Timed relay race with 4 players on each team
  • Precision Passing: Players battling against each other to hit moving targets.

The Pro Bowl players will be determined by voting.  The voting of fans, players and coaches each count as 1/3rd of the total weight to determine which players will represent each of the teams.  The final decision for the players will be announced on December 20th.  The entire event will air during Pro Bowl week on Thursday, January 26 and 7PM ET on ESPN.  This should be an exciting and fun event to watch!


About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
