Gotta' love the multifaceted advertising by the marketing folk at ABC/ESPN/Disney--timing this just before SWGE opens--wanna' bet the Game Day guys will be giving a preview during the show?

    Hi Coach! It would be fun to watch live without worrying that my team is going to lose a big game :D

    I wonder if that will break the streak for the WSU flag since you cant have them inside of Magic Kingdom?

    I wondered if maybe ESPN would arrange to get ahold of the WSU flag so they could hang it somewhere on set for the show, just to keep the streak alive.

    As an avid Disney and college football fan, I'm excited for the collaboration, but I have to admit I've been a bit exasperated by some of the reaction on social media. Specifically, the thought that folks are being charged over $100 to watch Gameday. Sure, that's what it will cost to get in and see the show, but that's just the price of admission to the park, whether they watch the show or not.

    I half-way read the part of the press release that says “guests may catch a glimpse of the live broadcast...” as they won’t really be letting people just hang out in the background like a normal GameDay setup. And that’s not exactly the best spot to have a massive group of people just hanging out/blocking people heading down Main Street.

    But very curious to see how exactly they set this up.

    DW is predicting it’ll be “boring” on TV without the signs and such. And she also said the same as you about the WSU flag - that they’ll find a way. :-)

    I'll definitely be watching. I'm guessing they can get away with it being a different set up, as that week isn't the true start of the NCAAF schedule.

    Um, yes it is the true start of the NCAAF schedule. Thats why the game is called the
    Camping World kickoff. The game was originally scheduled for 8/31 and was specifically moved to 8/24 for the ratings advantage of being the only primetime game to start college football's 150th season. They aren't getting away with anything having game day at MK, they're simply utilizing a prominent space since neither Miami/Florida have their main campus in Orlando.

    I'm looking forward to attending and seeing the crew a top the train station and attending the game later that evening.

    Um ok. It's being referred to as "week zero."

    And providing a 3 hour "infomercial" for Magic Kingdom, SWGE and the rest of the Walt Disney World Resort. :)

    Not surprised at all that they lifted the sign restriction.

    Should be a really fun and unique GameDay with quite possibly the best Backdrop in the history of the show!!!!:)
