Get ready!! We are about to learn a lot more about the nicest hotels on the Disney World Resort campus.

As many concerns as well as new protocols from the league have been reported over the past few days with the NBA eager to send 22 teams to begin play in Orlando on July 31, we now know where the teams will be staying while they're in the Disney ‘bubble.'

Shams Charania of The Athletic reported that the hotel situation for each team is actually based on current standings:

Thus, with the Trail Blazers currently tied for the ninth-seed out West with a 29-37 record, they will be staying at The Yacht Club instead of the Gran Destino, which just opened last summer.

Check out the differences for yourself:

Gran Destino:  

Yacht Club:  

But according to sources close to me, the Yacht Club is "more family friendly and has a bigger variety of entertainment and food options… There's a lot of food!"

So would the family friendliness be the reason former Trail Blazers Robin Lopez is looking to stay at the Yacht Club versus kicking it at the Gran Destino?

Probably.

ROLO even went as far as to ask the Trail Blazers Big 3 of Damian Lillard, Carmelo Anthony, and CJ McCollum to swap rooms with him since the Bucks are holding down the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference and thus will stay at the brand new hotel.

Lopez isn't alone in his thinking that the Yacht Club is where it's at:

The current Milwaukee Bucks big man is looking for a beach getaway theme hotel, clearly.

Social media, though, has had a field day with the seeding of hotels and poking fun at the Yacht Club.

Now we wait and see if Lillard, Melo or CJ are willing to trade hotel rooms with ROLO, and how the ‘Yacht Club team' fares in Orlando.

Cheers to the Yacht Club Squad!
