Florida Vacation Guide to Atlanta Braves Spring Training

When you’re planning a vacation for a family of baseball fans, consider a trip to Walt Disney World in the spring of 2012.

Imagine watching the Atlanta Braves playing the Houston Astros under the lights during a night ball game at Disney World. The loud crack of the bat, the smell of popcorn in the air, the roar of the crowd; it’s all made that much more magical when it happens at Disney World.

The ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex will play home to the Atlanta Braves for the team’s 2012 spring training season. Many of Major League Baseball’s most popular teams will be coming to Disney to play the Braves. See the Cardinals, the Phillies, the Yankees or the Mets at Champion Stadium during your 2012 Florida vacation.
