Disney Springs is becoming the place to be — and that’s before the NBA Experience has even opened! Coming this summer, the NBA Experience is developed by Walt Disney Imagineering in collaboration with the NBA and promises an interactive experience for everyone.

The NBA Experience is being built on the site of the former Disney Quest, in Disney SpringsWest Side.

A walk by the NBA Experience let us see how the building is really taking shape and starting to look a lot like the concept art!

We can even see the basketball players on the artistic panels being added to the building.

The NBA Experience and City Works aren’t the only new locations coming to Disney Springs. We are anxiously awaiting the opening of Jaleo this winter. A visit to this location showed more progress, including the sign for Pepe, the quick service option for this restaurant.
