Business Insider shared a video that took a deep dive into the world of food inside the NBA “bubble” at Disney World.
The NBA called Walt Disney World Resort their home in order to restart the 2020 season amid the coronavirus pandemic. This became known as the “bubble” since players weren’t allowed to leave certain parts of the Disney complex and Guests at the Resort had to remain outside of the NBA’s designated area.
Now that the bubble is breaking, more information is getting released on how things were run behind the scenes.

Here are some key facts from the video:
Disney was initially responsible for feeding the 22 teams that made it into the bubble. But after negative Twitter reviews and complaints from players, the NBA brought in chefs like Lex to live inside the bubble under strict quarantine.
She and the other chefs whip up about 4,000 meals a week. But Chef Lex is no stranger to star-studded clientele. She’s cooked for the Portland Trail Blazers, Oprah Winfrey, Kelly Rowland, Meek Mill, and competed on Food Network’s “Chopped.” We followed Chef Lex to see what it’s really like cooking thousands of meals for players inside the NBA bubble.
It really is amazing how many meals the team of chefs were able to create for the NBA! And, the NBA may not be the only basketball bubble at Disney World, we reported that college basketball may attempt to recreate the success of the bubble.
Here is a quote from our report on college basketball showing interest in moving to play at least a few games at Walt Disney World:
ESPN is planning to move at least eight of its men’s college basketball events to the ESPN Wide World of Sports property at Walt Disney World in Orlando, conference and team sources told ESPN.
ESPN runs 10 nonconference events in November and December, and at least eight of them are expected to take place in Orlando this year. The Champions Classic, Charleston Classic, Myrtle Beach Invitational, NIT Season Tip-Off, Wooden Legacy, Orlando Invitational, Jimmy V Classic and Diamond Head Classic are expected to move to Disney.
