Is the NBA Experience Disney Springs Closed Forever?
For NBA fans that visit Walt Disney World or frequent Disney Springs in Florida, we’ve got some bad news…
It appears that the Disney NBA Experience is now closed permanently and will NOT be reopening in the future.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, the move to shut down the NBA Experience has been confirmed by The Walt Disney Company:

In the article, published on August 16, 2021, the Orlando Sentinel went on to say that “The decision to close was made jointly with the NBA, Disney says.”

And, thankfully, the beloved Orlando Magic aren’t going anywhere, so you can still see some NBA fun up close and personal in the area!
Have a magical day!
