The Disney Parks Blog revealed new images of the NBA Experience that is coming to Disney Springs West Side. The building is described as being inspired by the modern architecture of new NBA arenas around the country, with the same spirit and energizing impact, while creating an unmistakable and entertaining connection to the NBA in a way that only Disney can.
The location has announced that it is scheduled to open in the summer of 2019. Disney announced that the location would close in July of 2015, a month before the announcement of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge which will also open in 2019. DisneyQuest closed in July to make way for construction.
“We are inspired by the design of the new building and the energy that it will bring to the West Side of Disney Springs,” said Senior Vice President of Disney Springs and ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex Maribeth Bisienere.
The facility will include interactive games and competitions, immersive experiences, a retail store and an adjacent restaurant.
NBA President, Global Partnerships Sal LaRocca, recently commented on the project, sharing, “This one-of-a-kind experience is sure to be enjoyed by basketball and Disney fans of all ages who visit Disney Springs from around the world.”
