Disney first announced plans to open a basketball-inspired attraction way back in 2015, and after a long wait, they've now given us a sneak peek at what’s in store. Last week, Disney revealed that the NBA Experience would officially open at Disney Springs in summer 2019. They also released some artist renderings, giving us a glimpse of what the exciting attraction will look like.
If you haven’t heard much about the new NBA Experience, it will be a family-friendly attraction that basketball fans are sure to love! It’s been described as a “one-of-a-kind basketball-themed experience featuring hands-on activities that put guests of all ages right in the middle of NBA game action”. The state-of-the-art space will feature interactive games, immersive experiences and competitions to name just a few. There will also be a retail store where you can pick up exclusive merchandise to take home, and a restaurant for when you’re feeling hungry.
The building design will be inspired by the modern architecture of NBA arenas across the country. There will be screens showing basketball games as well as pictures of famous sporting legends. Guests will get the chance to explore inside the world of professional basketball in a number of exciting ways. Sal LaRocca (NBA President, Global Partnerships) explained that the new attraction is a one-of-a-kind experience designed to “be enjoyed by basketball and Disney fans of all ages who visit Disney Springs from around the world.”
We can’t wait to find out more about the fun interactive experiences on offer. Keep checking our blog for the latest updates on this amazing new attraction.
