ESPN Zone was a chain of large sports-themed restaurants owned by Disney Regional Entertainment. ESPN Zone restaurants typically feature large arcades and television and radio studios for ESPN. The first ESPN Zone opened on July 11, 1998 at the Power Plant in Baltimore, Maryland. With most of the ESPN Zone restaurants closing between 2009 and 2013, there is only one location remaining, at Downtown Disney at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. With the dissolution of Disney Regional Entertainment in 2010, operations of the Los Angeles and Anaheim locations were turned over to third parties, licensing the ESPN brand from Disney. The now-closed Los Angeles location was operated by AEG, and the Anaheim location is run by Zone Enterprises. This location is slated to close by June 30, 2018, to make way for the Disneyland Resort's fourth onsite hotel.[1]
