NEWS: Disney Gives More Info on NBA Experience Coming to Disney Springs

Since before the closure of DisneyQuest in 2017, basketball fans and guests of Disney Springs have been curious about just what to expect from the new NBA Experience that will occupy the location. Disney has just released some more details on what will be in store for visitors when the new entertainment center opens in the summer of 2019.

First off, if you’ve ever watched a live NBA Draft and imagined yourself up there with the pros, you can get that feeling in person with “a photo moment that re-creates the atmosphere of the draft stage.”

You’ll also be able to train like a professional, with “a replicated NBA Combine challenge” to help you improve your game and a scouting statistics report to go along with it.

Guests will have the opportunity to perform timed shots before a “roaring crowd,” get photos of themselves making slam dunks on adjustable baskets, and work with a trainer to improve their dribbling game.

There will also be a some less-professional games for visitors to take part in, like a giant slingshot that players can use to shoot balls at different hoops in a timed challenge. NBA Experience will, of course, feature a basketball trivia competition with up to 25 players involved. Interactive arcade games focused on the sport will also be available, from Pop-A-Shot to modern video games.

NBA Experience will be filled with visual entertainment: Two 180-degree screens will show “stories from players’ perspectives” and arena footage, while “an interactive multi-screen module” will allow guests “to watch replay clips from NBA games, using the tools at their stations to make the right calls.”

A professional basketball experience wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the locker room, and NBA Experience’s will feature “up-to-date statistics and visuals of top NBA and WNBA players.”

Lastly, and the least surprising detail, there will be a merchandise shop on hand selling Disney-designed NBA-themed products.

About the Author:

My enthusiasm for all things Disney all started when my parents took our family to WDW for a vacation. My first trip was at age 13. Since that first time, I have made a trip to WDW almost every year from age 13. As far as I knew there was only one place to vacation! My fascination with WDW began on that first trip. I wanted to know how things at WDW operated and what made it so magical. I wanted to know details like how many people worked there and the length of the monorail track. It is that fascination that fueled my interest in WDW. Each year that my family vacationed at WDW, I learned more about WDW as they built more parks and added more attractions. I am not the average fan; I want to know all the details and I love researching the facts of WDW. I research facts through the Internet, books and DVDs. To me, the best part is to conduct research trip at WDW. After college, my father was transferred to Orlando and I moved with my parents. Seeking employment, I applied for a job at WDW. I passed the first rounds of interviews and was proud to join the Disney family as a security cast member! The job was great. It included Disney-specific training and security training before assuming four duties: driving a security vehicle, standing a post, working in a resort or walking a park or other area. Sometimes I even had special duties like working the Epcot Christmas Processional. I would escort the celebrity guests from backstage to onstage. Interestingly, every cast member is given a WDW fact book monthly to aid in answering guest questions. The pocket book contained great Disney facts that added more fuel for my thirst of Disney facts. Well, all-good things must come to end so we moved back to NJ. In the summer of 2010 I moved back to Florida I am now living in Orlando less then 15 minutes from WDW and living the dream and have fun along the way.
