New Details for NBA Experience Coming to Walt Disney World

All of you basketball fans are closer to being able to enjoy the new NBA Experience at Disney Springs within Walt Disney World.  We previously announced this new experience coming in 2019.  It currently looks like summer of 2019 is when we can expect it to finally open.  The new experience will allow kids of all ages to get a complete NBA experience.  It was developed by Walt Disney Imagineering in collaboration with the NBA for a one-of-a-kind destination that will offer hands-on activities that give guests a taste of the action and excitement of professional basketball.

 

 

Here are some of the things you can expect from NBA Experience:

  • Experience one of the biggest milestones for a basketball player at the NBA Draft with a photo moment that re-creates the atmosphere of the draft stage.
  • Track and improve their jump shots and passing skills in a replicated NBA Combine challenge, complete with a scouting report that highlights their stats at the end of the session.
  • Step onto the court and hear the roar of the crowd as they maneuver through a series of timed shots to aim for a high score.
  • Execute the perfect slam dunk just like NBA superstars, captured by cameras surrounding adjustable baskets.
  • Test their ball-handling skills with an interactive trainer who will challenge them with a variety of dribbling routines.
  • Use an oversized slingshot to launch basketballs at hoops of varying heights, making as many shots as possible before the clock runs out in this thrilling timed challenge.
  • Immerse themselves in the rich legacy and history of NBA and WNBA championship-winning teams.
  • Access a team locker room that showcases up-to-date statistics and visuals of top NBA and WNBA players.
  • Test their knowledge of the NBA and WNBA – past and present – during a trivia game with up to 25 participants competing against one another to be champion.
  • Enjoy two 180-degree cinematic presentations that showcase the in-arena experience moments before the start of the game, as well as special stories from the players’ perspectives.
  • Take a seat at an interactive multi-screen module to watch replay clips from NBA games, using the tools at their stations to make the right calls.
  • Play interactive basketball games, from the fan-favorite Pop-A-Shot to modern video games

We will keep you posted on all of the details as soon as we learn about them.
