PHOTOS: New NBA Practice Courts Installed Inside Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort Convention Center

The NBA is settling into its new, temporary home at Walt Disney World, and with that comes big changes to the resort landscape as we know it. Just installed at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort Convention Center are these expansive practice courts, to be used by various teams housed at Gran Destino Tower.

The interior of the convention center is now laid over with glossy court flooring.

Pallets of flooring had to be delivered by way of large semi trucks. Thankfully, the infrastructure of Walt Disney World is built to handle large installations such as these.

Preparations such as these, plus housing, entertainment, and more are not cheap. In fact, it’s costing the NBA roughly 1.5 million dollars a day to maintain the Walt Disney World “bubble” for the upcoming resumed season. Bright blue perimeter fencing has gone up at even Walt Disney World’s flagship resort, the Grand Floridian, marring the landscape to ensure the health, safety, and privacy of the players. To read more on the extravagant details behind the NBA staying at Walt Disney World, click here. And for a full restart schedule of upcoming games, set to begin on July 30, click here.
