Word came out a few months that the Disneyquest attraction at Disney Springs was closing to make way for a new NBA Experience complex. Disneyquest is now closed, and Disney has released more information about what visitors to the new NBA Experience at Disney Springs can expect, including an opening date of Summer 2019. Here is a rundown of all the details (source):
Inspired by the modern architecture of new NBA arenas around the country, the building design exudes the same spirit and energizing impact, while creating an unmistakable and entertaining connection to the NBA in a way that only Disney can.
It’s one of several ways Disney Springs is still growing and adding new experiences to delight and entertain our Guests.
“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 state-of-the-art space 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.”
