The NBA isn’t the only professional sports league coming to Disney World to finish up their season! The MLS is also set to begin games soon at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.
While the NBA isn’t due to arrive until next week, MLS players, staff, coaches, and reporters are starting to arrive today!
Stephen Fusaro, a reporter at ESPN, arrived at Disney today and tweeted that he received a nasal swab test before checking into his room.
So just checked into the hotel inside the MLS Bubble. Got my Covid nasal swab test and it was definitely uncomfortable, but I was expecting worse. Now quarantined in my room for the rest of the night until tomorrow morning, when I will get another Covid year. #MLSisBack

And with those individuals arriving, many are starting to get to know the Swan and Dolphin resorts, where they will be staying! With people quick to point out the higher room service prices for meals, Brad Humber, Associate Producer at Sportsnet, referenced one of our menus to compare prices! Thanks for the shout out!
Everyone freaking out about these "room service" prices that DISNEY is charging at the #MLSisBack resort need to chill a bit. This is normal ROOM SERVICE mark-up prices. For reference: https://t.co/cefL06nG7x

MLS players are also arriving at the Swan and Dolphin hotels, which will host the players, coaches, staff, and reporters for the duration of the MLS tournament. The Swan and Dolphin recently shared that they will be closed to the general public through July 29th, and those guests with confirmed reservations are being moved to the JW Marriott Orlando Bonnet Creek.
We will continue to cover the MLS as well as the NBA at Disney World in the coming weeks!
