The Disney Parks Blog has released new details about the NBA Experience, including an opening date of Summer, 2019. The new attraction will be on the West Side, replacing DisneyQuest, the indoor theme park and entertainment venue that has been in the location since 1998.
The building that held the former attraction is currently being demolished to make room for the NBA Experience building to be constructed.
The building is fashioned after the architecture of NBA arenas around the country. The NBA Experience is planned to have shopping, dining, and recreation activities for 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.
