This morning new details were released on the yet-to-open NBA Experience coming to Disney Springs next year.

The destination, which is being produced by the National Basketball Association and Walt Disney Imagineering, will feature a dozen interactive experiences that will "immerse fans in the game."
"Developed with the NBA, and inspired by the league’s 29 arenas around the country, NBA Experience will highlight the heart-pounding action and excitement of the NBA world," said Stan Dodd, executive producer at Walt Disney Imagineering, in a press release. "From training simulations and clock-racing competitions to fan-favorite NBA moments – we’re bringing new experiences and thrilling games to life to make fans truly feel like a star player."



From the press release:
  • Experience one of the biggest milestones for a basketball player at the NBA Draft with a photo moment that re-creates the atmosphere of the draft stage.

  • Track and improve their jump shots and passing skills in a replicated NBA Combine challenge, complete with a scouting report that highlights their stats at the end of the session.

  • Step onto the court and hear the roar of the crowd as they maneuver through a series of timed shots to aim for a high score.

  • Execute the perfect slam dunk just like NBA superstars, captured by cameras surrounding adjustable baskets.

  • Test their ball-handling skills with an interactive trainer who will challenge them with a variety of dribbling routines.

  • Use an oversized slingshot to launch basketballs at hoops of varying heights, making as many shots as possible before the clock runs out in this thrilling timed challenge.

  • Immerse themselves in the rich legacy and history of NBA and WNBA championship-winning teams.

  • Access a team locker room that showcases up-to-date statistics and visuals of top NBA and WNBA players.

  • Test their knowledge of the NBA and WNBA – past and present – during a trivia game with up to 25 participants competing against one another to be champion.

  • Enjoy two 180-degree cinematic presentations that showcase the in-arena experience moments before the start of the game, as well as special stories from the players’ perspectives.

  • Take a seat at an interactive multi-screen module to watch replay clips from NBA games, using the tools at their stations to make the right calls. Play interactive basketball games, from the fan-favorite Pop-A-Shot to modern video games.
The NBA Experience is currently under construction and is expected to open in Disney Springs in the summer of 2019.
