Walt Disney World's new NBA Experience will open on August 12 at Disney Springs, the league announced tonight at an Orlando Magic game.
The mid-August opening puts NBA Experience just a couple weeks ahead of the August 29 debut of the Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge land at Disney's Hollywood Studios, setting up a lively end-of-summer season at the resort.
Built on the site of the former Disney Quest attraction, the NBA Experience will feature 13 interactive elements and activities across 44,000 square feet and two floors, including interactive games, photo ops, trivia challenges, and skills exercises.
Disney released a promo video tonight with Stan Dodd from Walt Disney Imagineering, along with a few NBA players, describing the attraction.
For those of you wondering, yes, there used to be an NBA-themed location at an Orlando-area theme park before. NBA City was a themed restaurant at Universal Orlando's CityWalk. It closed and the facility was rebuilt into the Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen in 2016.Tweet
