On another board, people saying they are being moved already. But as with anything, wait for something official to be announced.

Where have you seen this being reported? We have a room booked at CR for the 2nd weekend in April but haven't received any emails from Disney yet?

Makes sense. That’s the minor leagues so those guys may get sent to the All Stars ;) I wonder if the NBA has continuing issues with Covid if they consider a return to the bubble for their playoffs in May. I think the league was holding out hope that if the vaccine rollout was really fast and effective that they could get fans back in for the playoffs this summer. It doesn’t look very likely but who knows. The bubble worked pretty well last year.

Would still be an upgrade

Contempo needs a gut job in the main concourse area. It looks like a mall food court. A proper job could make this the flagship resort if they just spend the money and work with 70s/Mary Blair vibe instead of fighting it. Picture a really high end airport terminal in the pan am era... now we’re talking.

The bubble is happening for something called the G league? Starts Feb 8th and has 18 teams.

The NBA season already started but they are already having Covid issues. Maybe they are looking for a bubble for the playoffs which ramp up end of May but they could bring teams in to finish out the regular season a month earlier. The NBA rumor could have some smoke to it.

I don’t know NBA timelines haha, but that answers that!

Yes, but I thought the NBA was in February and this refurb is April to September (supposedly). Who knows! :)

A Contemporary refurb has been on the table for ages, so it wouldn’t shock me if they used this time to pull the trigger. That said, I wonder if this could also be about NBA Bubble 2. I’ve been told that resort(s) will be pulled offline to accommodate it instead of using the still closed ones (Pop Century and Port Orleans aren’t really up to snuff). But, the Contemporary, other than the ballrooms, seems like a really odd choice for that.

@Magic Feather - Have you heard of Contemporary closing for a refurbishment from April to September of this year? People starting to report being moved, but unsure why. Being moved to Grand Floridian. thanks!

Did he say it wasn't? I think 1/36 counts as "small."

Not only all of this... but I would now personally question the 15 minute guidance itself. With the new UK B.1.1.7 strain taking hold, viral load is higher and the virus can spread easier in situations with shorter contact: https://www.livescience.com/uk-variant-coronavirus-faq.html Does it spread more easily? Yes. Experts now think the new variant is between 50% and 74% more transmissible than other dominant strains, according to a study by the Center for Mathematical Modeling and Infectious Diseases (CMMID) that has not yet been peer-reviewed. The WHO estimates this would tack on 0.4 to the basic reproductive number R, which dictates how many people each infected person would spread the virus to. Based on models of that growth, the new variant could be responsible for 90% of all new COVID-19 cases in London and East and South England by mid-January, that study found. Another study from the U.K., published Dec. 27 to medrXiv and also not peer reviewed, found higher viral loads in PCR tests that are negative for the S gene. Testing negative for the S gene means the virus has the 69-70Del mutation and so such S-gene dropouts are thus a proxy for, but not a certain indication of, the samples coming from the B.1.1.7 variant. And a higher viral load makes it easier for the virus to spread.
