Activities in Disney Springs’ NBA Experience
Once inside, we had to take a look at all of the activities you can participate in at the NBA Experience. There are 13 activities across two floors.
We will be bringing you a full photo tour of the NBA Experience this week. Here’s a preview of what we saw and experienced. Our first stop was to take a look at the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy. It is as impressive as it looks on TV when the winning team holds it up in the air! This will make a great photo op!
You will get to experience what it is like to hear a team call your name in Draft — complete with a photo with a wax version of NBA Commissioner, Adam Silver!
If you have dreamed of making a slam dunk Dunk! is the activity for you. The goal can be adjusted to the correct height for you to make your picture-perfect slam dunk.
See how you measure up to an NBA or WNBA player. Are you seven feet tall?
In the Players area you enter a locker room and can look up players, teams, and more on the interactive screens.
Slingshot is what it sounds like, you slingshot the ball into the hoop, well you try too!
In the Arcade you can play NBA2K and other arcade games — perfect for kids of all ages!
To celebrate the opening a brand-new Funko POP! was released featuring none other than Mickey himself! Take a look at this special edition figure.
Mickey is going up for what looks like a slam dunk. He is wearing a blue uniform with the number 28 on it in red.
