NBA Players at Disney World
With this in mind, many guests will be hoping to see NBA players at Disney World theme parks over the next couple of months. However, due to the current situation, (COVID-19), sources have confirmed that players will not be “roaming the parks and getting on rides”. This rule will also extend to their families as well.
