The NBA could very well be making its way to the home of none other than Mickey Mouse.

Wednesday evening, Shams Charania of The Athletic broke the news that Orlando’s Walt Disney World has emerged as the “clear frontrunner” to host the NBA once the 2019-20 season resumes.

According to the report, the NBA is in “serious discussions” with Disney about the property, with games potentially set to resume by mid-July.

“The NBA is in serious discussions with Disney about the property, which has gained clear momentum over cities such as Las Vegas,” Charania reported. “It remains unclear when the games would begin, but multiple sources say the prospect of players fully training in mid-June and playing by mid-July has been the most popular and possible scenario discussed. NBA commissioner Adam Silver told the Board of Governors on May 12 that he aims to decide on the season in two-to-four weeks, and that he wants to wait as long as he can to make final decisions.”

The NBA has also considered the likes of Las Vegas and Houston, but Orlando is holding firm as the solid leader to win its bid to host, “so long as final details regarding testing and hotel use are resolved.”
