Brook Lopez is going to be in the happiest place on Earth in the off-season because he is building a home in Disney World.

Lopez told the New York Daily News he first started thinking about moving to the massive theme park a few years ago when it first opened the Golden Oak development, allowing people to live on the property for the first time.

“My older brother Chris sent me a link when the property development was first announced three or four years ago now,” Lopez said. “We joked about doing it. As it got more real and real, I just decided I wanted to do it.”

According to the Daily News, Lopez's home will be completed in about a year and a half, and the Brooklyn Nets center plans to live there in the off-season.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the development will eventually contain up to 450 homes, starting at $1.8 million.
