Disney fan Robin Lopez from the Milwaukee Bucks began his stay at the new Destino Tower at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort by watching Stacey’s “Must-Do’s.” We hope he watches Company Clips next.

Serge Ibaka of the Toronto Raptors also shared a video of his arrival at Destino Tower.
Not everyone is thrilled with the Destino Tower rooms, such as Enes Kanter of the Boston Celtics. Wait until he hears where some of the other teams are staying…

Worried about safety? Players, staff, and journalists have to wear a sensor that alerts them when they get within 6-feet of another person.
Here’s a look at some players arriving at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort, one of Disney’s Deluxe Resort options. For comparison, Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort is in the moderate category.
The Grand Floridian’s Player’s Lounge looks like it’s in a luxury tent on Seven Seas Lagoon.

The Portland Trail Blazers are also staying in style at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort, another Deluxe level resort. The players can also look forward to experiencing some of Walt Disney World’s classic theme park attractions during exclusive after hours events just for the NBA.
