NBA experience opening at Disney Springs

I think some people get the impression that Disney had a lot of various possible ideas and went with the NBA, instead of the NBA being the ones who wanted to push for and build this. It's not like Disney can't build anywhere else in Disney Springs

Disney loves to be the landlord of Disney Springs. I agree the NBA went to Disney asking to be a tenant. I am sure the tenant pays the construction costs. I would not be surprised if the tenant pays some sort of rent even during the construction, so the tenant can complete construction as soon as possible so that the unsightly construction completes as soon as possible.

And as I said in previous posts, even if this fails, there will be another tenant willing to rebuild, move in and pay rent. Disney always wins.

The construction cost was the big holdup on this site. The NBA wanted Disney to pay and Disney didn't want to pay. I would think the solution was crediting the rent something each month until the construction costs are paid for. However, only the NBA and Disney know what the actual deal is.

It's rare that I ever see people WANT something to fail so badly before it even opens (ok, maybe the American Idol experience is one). Is it just because it replaced the dying DisneyQuest?

Agreed that some people are just going to want to see it fail just because THEY aren't interested in it. Guess what, I'm not interested in Cirque Du Soleil AT ALL, but I don't go on bashing it for being there.
Chris, you’re not new here.
Don’t you know that the only course of action for something that doesn’t appeal to YOU is to bash it ad nauseam, and badger and mock everyone who disagrees with you?

Sadly, it is not enough to say “Sorry, not my cup of tea” and just move on. Case in point - the Coronado Springs Tower thread. 🤦🏻‍♀️
