While Disney has not released any official information on what this barrier could be for, it comes at an interesting time. The NBA is expected to come to Disney World in July, with select teams making Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort their home base.

If other guests will still be staying at the hotel, it’s possible this fencing could provide a temporary barrier to help space out the NBA players from Disney World guests, helping to achieve the “bubble” that the NBA hopes to create for the players, personnel, and media that will be in the area.

Reporter Scott Gustin also shared photos of this barrier on his Twitter, which show additional views of the fence being put up and also the approximate placement.

At this time, Disney has not released any official information on this new addition to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort, but we will keep you updated with any additional information!

  1. It looks like the barrier is to contain the Hotel to DVC Members only. The GF may only open to DVC and the rest of the property and hotel rooms are blocked off. I heard NBA Players would be staying at Colorado Springs.
