The NBA Experience Disney Springs construction is in full swing! Disney Quest closed its doors forever almost a year ago and construction began on this new attraction at Disney Springs. In that time it appears a decent amount of progress has been made (but I’m not a construction expert so take that with a grain of salt). We’ve got another year or so until this building is open to guests but we’re already practicing our slam dunk!
When complete, this state-of-the-art space will include interactive games and competitions, immersive experiences, a retail store and an adjacent restaurant! It’s one of several ways Disney Springs is still growing and adding new experiences to entertain and delight guests!
The building design itself inspired by the modern architecture of new NBA arenas around the country. The hope is that the design captures the same spirit and energizing impact, while creating an unmistakable and entertaining connection to the NBA in a way that only Disney can.
“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.
And we’ve got a newer construction update for you! From these photo you can see that it looks like most of the framing of the building is complete. We are excited to see the walls start going up!
The NBA Experience will be located in the West Side section of Disney Springs at the Walt Disney World Resort. It is set to open in the Summer of 2019!
