While we know the playoffs are coming to Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports, there hasn’t been a definite answer regarding where the players will stay when the season begins after the parks’ grand re-opening.

According to a recent report from ESPN, NBA players will be “contained to three specific hotels within the Disney complex.” While there is no definitive statement about which resorts the players will be staying at, there IS information regarding how the players would be following health and safety protocols on Disney property.

The players will be tested every night and receive the results in the morning.

NBA Teams Playing

Players who test positive will be quarantined for a minimum of seven days. If a team is required to pull in another player from an inactive roster, the NBA would have that player quarantine for a week prior to joining practices and games.
