College GameDay is Opening the Season at Disney World Because Why the Hell Not

In TV, sometimes you have to change things up a bit and do something different.

ESPN's College GameDay is certainly doing that, as they're opening the season down at Disney World on August 24.

Why are they going to Disney? Who knows, but ESPN is a Disney product so I guess it makes sense.

This is the Saturday before they kick off the 2019 college football season in Clemson for the defending champs' first matchup of the season against Georgia Tech.

Unfortunately for fans who want to attend, it'll be different than what it's usually like on a Saturday at the College GameDay set, most notably that signs won't be allowed.

It'll be more tight knit than usual, as there will be no special access for those who want to watch GameDay. You'll need a general admissions pass for Magic Kingdom if you want to get a glimpse of the GameDay crew.

So basically, this won't be how College GameDay normally looks. It appears to be a preview for the upcoming college football season at "The Happiest Place on Earth."
