    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - The Walt Disney World Resort just announced that the NBA Experience, a brand new destination coming to the West Side of Disney Springs, will officially open on August 12, 2019.

    The NBA experience will give guests a chance to feel like a basketball superstar in a one-of-a-kind environment packed with 13 interactive elements and hands on activities across 44,000 feet and two floors.

    The design of the NBA Experience at Disney Springs was created in collaboration with the NBA, and will include immersive environments such as an entryway designed to make guests feel as if they’re walking through the players tunnel at an NBA or WNBA arena.

    A ticket to the NBA experience grants guess access to every activity, in any order they choose with the ability to return to stations to improve performances or learn even more about the game, players, and the teams they love.

    In addition to all of the experiences you can have, there will also be a retail store featuring NBA themed merchandise.

    Here are a few of the elements that you will find inside of the NBA experience at Disney Springs:

    • A Slam Dunk Challenge, where guests can change the height of the standard 10-foot hoop to as low as 7-feet to perform their own superstar moves – captured by burst photography.
    • An activity that tests shooting skills with spots on a court that light up as guests move from one location to another attempting to sink as many shots as possible in 15 seconds.
    • A way for guests to see how they stack up to some of the world’s best basketball players by measuring their vertical leap, wingspan, shooting, and dribbling.
    • Personalization for various activities with guests names and associating me activity with their favorite NBA or WNBA teams.
    • Real-time technology to aggregate statistics of NBA and WNBA games and players for continuous updates, while leader boards will track top NBA experience performers throughout each day.

    Tickets are availble now for the NBA Experience!
