Guests of all ages will get the chance to live out their NBA dreams in a new way. Developed by Walt Disney Imagineering in collaboration with the NBA, this new experience will feature hands-on activities that showcase the action and excitement of professional basketball.

When guests step inside the immersive NBA Experience next year, they will:

  • Experience what it’s like to be drafted into the NBA with a photo opportunity that re-creates the draft stage
  • Track and improve jump shots and passing skills in a replicated NBA Combine challenge, and check their stats with a scouting report at the end of their session
  • Step onto the court and hear the crowd as they play through a series of timed shots to aim for the high score
  • Make a perfect slam dunk just like the superstars of the NBA, and have it captured by cameras surrounding adjustable baskets
  • Test their ball-handling skills with an interactive trainer who will challenge guests with various dribbling routines
  • Use an oversized slingshot to launch basketballs at hoops of varying heights, trying to make as many shots as possible before the clock runs out
  • Immerse themselves in the history of the NBA and WNBA championship-winning teams
  • Access a team locker room that shows up-to-date statistics and visuals of top NBA and WNBA players
  • Test their knowledge of the NBA and WNBA with a trivia game that hosts up to 25 participants
  • See two 180-degree cinematic presentations that replicate the in-arena experience before the start of the game, as well as stories from the players’ perspectives
  • Take a seat at an interactive screen module and watch clips from NBA games, using the tools at the station to make the right calls
  • Play interactive basketball games, including Pop-A-Shot and modern video games

On top of all of that, guests will be able to browse through a retail location featuring exclusive NBA-themed merchandise designed by Disney.

More details will be released in the coming months leading to opening. Stay tuned to our website, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube channel for more updates on the NBA Experience.
