Accessible Disney – Braves Spring Training at Champion Stadium


Braves Spring Training at Champion Stadium

I was able to mark several things off of my Disney bucket list on our recent trip. One of the things I was most excited about was seeing the Atlanta Braves play a Spring Training game at the ESPN Wide World of Sports. Disney, the Braves, and ESPN are three of my favorite things! Champion Stadium is really nice and we had an awesome time. Here is a little info about the wheelchair accessibility of the stadium.

Parking

Parking was very easy. Disney has several Cast Members in the parking lots that will direct you to the correct parking lot. There are several disabled parking spaces available but if there are several event they can fill up pretty quickly. If all of the designated disabled spots are taken you can still park pretty close to the stadium. I would suggest arriving early to make sure you get the spot you need. Disney also provides transportation from their resorts so check with Guest Services at your resort on game nights.

A beautiful day for baseball!

Hill leading to the entrance of Champion Stadium.

Champion Stadium is a short walk/roll from the parking lot. There is a hill leading up to the gates but it wasn’t too steep. Once you get to the entrance, there is a sign to the left designating the wheelchair entrance. Security will check your bags and then a Cast Member will scan your tickets.

Seats

There is wheelchair seating available in several sections at Champion Stadium. You can check out this seating chart for locations. We sat in section 109 on the first base side. There are blue lines marking the the locations of your seats. They don’t leave chairs out, which cuts down on people sitting in the wrong spot, so when you arrive you’ll have to wait for a Cast Member to bring them out. It doesn’t take very long.

The only problem with the seats is that if the people in front of you stand up you can’t really see. But there really isn’t a lot of instances where people are standing so it wasn’t too much of an issue. We had some really nice, considerate guys sitting in front of us as well.

We had such a great time that we are already planning a trip next year to see the Braves Spring Training at Champion Stadium. Parking was a breeze, Champion Stadium is one of the nicest that I’ve been to, and you can’t beat the extra Disney touches. If you have any questions check out the Atlanta Braves Spring Training website or leave a comment below.

I really like Champion Stadium. It's a cool place. I'm glad it's accessible for all and that it isn't too hard to get around. Great post!
