As we approach tip off for the 2015 NBA Finals, we wanted to share some exciting details on a new, extraordinary entertainment experience for guests of all ages coming to Disney Springs called The NBA Experience at Walt Disney World Resort.


The NBA Experience at Walt Disney World Resort is going to be a one-of-a-kind destination featuring hands-on activities that put families and guests of all ages right in the middle of NBA game action. You’ll be able to explore inside the world of professional basketball with numerous interactive experiences and enjoy a restaurant and retail store.


The Walt Disney Company and the NBA just made the joint announcement and also shared that initial development work has just begun. “We’re excited to join the NBA in offering this unique form of family entertainment,” said Bob Chapek, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. “It will be a terrific addition to the world-class lineup of shops and restaurants coming to Disney Springs.”

The NBA Experience at Walt Disney World Resort will be one of more than 150 shopping, dining and entertainment venues at Disney Springs.

Keep checking the Disney Parks Blog for more details about The NBA Experience at Walt Disney World Resort as Downtown Disney continues its expansion into Disney Springs.


  • That´s sounds amazing! We´ll love it! Any idea when it´s going to be open? We´re going in early November.

  • My family had just started to enjoy ESPN the weekend at Disney Studios when it disappeared. It sounds like this may be a little like one of the venues found there, at least I hope so. Hope there is no additional ticket needed or fee to have the experience.

  • As a new Premium Annual Passholder if this goes in where Disney Quest is please expect me to be asking for my money back and a downgrade to the normal pass

  • As long as it’s not a replacement for Disneyquest, I’m actually excited for this. Many years ago my father and I shared a cry when the Fiesta Fun Center shut down to become a restauant, I dont want history repeating itself with me and my son.

  • Any estimate as to when this will open?

  • Can’t wait to try this out!! Finally a NEW NBA experience available in the area! Loving all the new additions to the Springs!

  • I’m concerned at just how this can fit the theme of DisneySprings? I’m not against it, and seeing as ESPN has a pretty big contract with the NBA, I understand the synergy of it all, but just don’t see how the theme of DisneySprings can somehow handle an NBA “attraction”

  • Hopefully the Disney Quest building is not being viewed as a possible location. There are many different options besides the NBA, which has declining attendance. NBA City does not seem to be very popular at Disney Springs other major competitor.

  • This is awesome that NBA is coming to Disney Springs and I can’t wait and I love it! Awesome work Disney! Welcome NBA to the Disney Family! I love Orlando Magic Basketball team!

  • This is fantastic, great addition!!!
    Many NBA fans are going to love it, especially in my family.
    LOVE WDW!!!
