All 22 NBA teams playing the remainder of this year’s basketball season have assembled at Walt Disney World. However, don’t expect to see NBA players at Magic Kingdom anytime soon. The league is preparing to restart their basketball season in a controlled environment. But the NBA has made arrangements with Disney to provide after-hours access to attractions.
The NBA informed teams of “bookable experiences on the NBA campus at Disney” in a memo to basketball players. A list of their options for after-hours access includes access to Expedition Everest, Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster, and Test Track.
“Players will have the first opportunity to select experiences on a first come first serve basis and are recommended to book experiences at least 48 hours in advance,” the memo said. “Open slots for experiences will be released 24 hours prior to the beginning of the event, during which period other members of the team travel party may book available inventory.”
The NBA’s season will resume on July 30, 2020. They’ll play at Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex near Orlando, Florida. Besides the after-hours Disney attractions, NBA players can utilize other amenities.
Golf and other amenities
Players and staffers will have access to three golf courses with tee times for foursomes throughout the day, six days a week.
Disney’s Palm Golf Course, Disney’s Lake Buena Vista Golf Course and Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course are the three courses to play.
Players can also utilize bowling opportunities at Splitsville in Disney Springs on select nights. Meanwhile, their resort lounges include pool tables, table tennis and video games, swimming pools, tennis courts and bikes.
