New NBA Experience Coming to Disney Springs
Opening in 2019!
An exciting new basketball-themed experience is coming to Disney Springs and the official opening date has just been revealed...

Back in 2017, Disney announced that they would be replacing their DisneyQuest attraction, with a brand new, one-of-a-kind basketball-themed experience. They revealed that the new attraction would be called ‘The NBA Experience’ but were careful not to give too much away- until now!

That’s right, after a long wait, Disney have finally shared even more details for the exciting new attraction as well as confirming that it will open to the public on 12th August 2019! Here’s everything you need to know…

The NBA Experience will give kids (and big kids!) the chance to live out their basketball dreams with a host of hands-on activities that will give you an insight into professional basketball. There will be a total of 13 interactive elements spread over 44,000 square feet and two floors. Disney Imagineers have been working closely alongside the NBA to bring this unique experience to life and it sounds like it's going to be incredible.

NBA Basketball Experience at Disney Springs

As soon as you step inside this immersive attraction, you’ll find yourself right in the middle of the action and will feel like you're walking straight through the players' tunnel out onto the court at an NBA arena. You’ll be able to step onto the draft stage (one of the biggest moments for any basketball player), practise your passing skills and jump shots, master the perfect slam dunk and use an oversized slingshot to shoot basketballs at hoops of varying heights in an exciting timed challenge. You’ll have to complete a series of tasks to see if you can get a high score.

You can also see how you compare to some of your basketball heroes by measuring your vertical leap, wingspan and shooting & dribbling skills. 

There are lots of great photo opportunities throughout the attraction too, and you’ll even be able to watch playback footage of yourself showing off your best basketball skills afterwards. Various activities will be personalised with your name and associated with your favourite basketball team, with all of your stats tracked just like a real pro game. 

Think you’re an NBA expert? Go up against fellow guests and put your knowledge to the test in a tough trivia quiz, to see if you’ve got what it takes to be crowned champion. You’ll also be able to play video games, watch iconic clips from NBA games and visit a team locker room to check up on the most up-to-date NBA statistics.

When you’re finished on the court, head over to the NBA-themed merchandise shop, where you’ll find exclusive souvenirs that have been designed by Disney.

Whether you’re a lifelong basketball fan or completely new to the game, there’s something that everyone can enjoy. If you’re visiting Orlando next summer, make sure you check it out at Disney Springs.
