Update: Added photos of the building as of August 17, 2021.

The Walt Disney World Resort’s NBA Experience located at Disney Springs will not reopen and is permanently closed.

What’s Happening:

  • The location first opened on August 12, 2019 but was soon given various changes to increase traffic to the building such as becoming a location for stroller rentals. The NBA Experience then closed in early 2020 due to the pandemic along with the entire resort, but never reopened.
  • Walt Disney World has now stated that the location will remain permanently closed and will announce future plans for the location at a later date.
  • The closure will not impact their partnership with the NBA nor the Orlando Magic.

  • The NBA Experience featured 13 interactive elements and activities such as a dunk challenge, dribble challenge, and more.
