ESPN Wide World of Sports
South of Hollywood Studios is the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex (formerly Disney's Wide World of Sports). This is a state-of-the-art sports complex with fields, stadiums, and arenas for a variety of sporting events. There are no regularly-scheduled events here; whether you'll find something going on is hit-or-miss. If there is something happening, it's probably a high school game with just a handful of spectators.
Admission is free if you have the Water Park Fun & More option on your Magic Your Way tickets. Otherwise, admission is $13.50 for adults and $10 for children ages 3–9.
