More details about the NBA/Disney Bubble have been released
Per Shams – the NBA & teams have agreed upon hotels and other details as the league plans on resuming in Disney World. The 76ers will be staying in the Grand Floridian, based on seeding. (I cant believe they actually did that)
Judging by all the travel review websites, Grand Floridian is the place to be:
Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa comes in at #13 in Orlando with praise from 11 reviews such as Travel + Leisure, Frommer’s and DK Eyewitness. … Overall, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa scores significantly higher than Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort.

If we’re counting preseason (we definitely are) then we’re a month and a week away from NBA basketball returning. Absolutely love it. It’s great news.
