    I will be heading to Disney in February for a weekend long event at ESPN Center. I will be staying 4 nights in all and was thinking about getting the dining plan. Are there any places at ESPN Center that accept the Dining Plan credits?

      Teresa – Yes, the ESPN Sports Ball and Grill is a quick service restaurant that accepts dining plan credits and serves both lunch and dinner.
