We have shared many details on if the NBA will finish their season in Disney World.
Now, the NBA is one step closer to making this a reality.
Lots of change has been happening around Disney World lately! Even though the parks have remained closed since mid-March, things are really starting to heat up.
Some Disney Springs businesses have recently begun to operate and Disney World’s theme parks now have an official reopening date. Now, sports fans’ attention is centered around the NBA’s decision to resume its season on Disney soil. The OFFICIAL announcement is expected to be made TODAY once the plan is approved.
While we’ve been chatting a lot about the possibility of the NBA finishing out its season in Walt Disney World (and you can read the latest on that developing story here), it also looks as though Major League Soccer will be doing so, according to an article by The Washington Post.
While the article notes that MLS has not issued an official statement, Major League Soccer and the MLS Players Association have reached an agreement to continue the 2020 season. [Read more…]
With sports still on pause, the NBA is looking to Disney World as a potential site for finishing the season.
Earlier this week, we reported that the NBA is set to vote on resuming their season at Disney World this Thursday, and more details have emerged in the meantime. If this happens, the games would resume at the ESPN Wide World of Sports and players would stay on Disney property, potentially at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. Let’s take a look at proposed dates and lodging arrangements for the NBA playoffs!
The NBA has been in talks with Disney since April when the idea to finish their 2020 season at Walt Disney World’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex was initially proposed.
And now Keith Smith (a former Walt Disney Company employee and current writer for Yahoo Sports) has just posted on Twitter that Disney and the NBA have potentially agreed on a place for the players to stay!
While most of us are just regular people who like to enjoy a nice time at Disney World to relax and unwind, there is another group of super-human athletes that come to Disney to COMPETE!
We’re talking about football players and cheer squads (along with their entourages!) which can sometimes flood Disney World Resort with THOUSANDS of peppy peeps!
The NBA has confirmed that they’re in talks with the Walt Disney Company to potentially finish their season in Orlando.
While the NBA season was previously suspended in response to health concerns, the league is now considering potential locations where they could finish the season at a single site. We previously reported that Disney World is a potential frontrunner, and the NBA has now confirmed that Disney is one of the locations being considered.
We’ve been keeping a close eye on the details that are being discussed by the Re-Open Florida Task Force as well as the local Orange County Economic Recovery Task Force.
Today, two of the Orange County committee’s subgroups met to discuss new ways to reopen businesses and bringing tourism back to Orlando, Florida.
An interesting piece by Keith Smith (a former Walt Disney Company employee) on Yahoo Sports presents a compelling argument as to why Walt Disney World Resort could be the perfect location “for the NBA to salvage its season.”
It goes without saying that the current global situation which has resulted in the temporary closure of Disney Parks around the globe has, of course, had major impacts far and wide. And this particular piece explores a way to continue the 2019-2020 National Basketball Association season, which has been suspended. [Read more…]
