The decision to include NBA as one of Disney World attractions is not new. There were announcements on this back in the 2015 when the company reveals plans of closing DisneyQuest and replacing it with the new NBA Experience. Today, the NBA project is speculated as one of Disney’s largest ever initiative in creating branded experiences as well. Universal Orlando has taken a lead already in this regard when they opened a branded experience for NBC’s Tonight Show, namely the ride attraction – Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon.
The NBA’s association with Orlando theme parks is not new. It was a part of Universal’s City Walk as the NBA City restaurant. Also when Universal CityWalk was first opened, NBC (now a part of Universal) owned the NBA’s broadcast rights. At present those broadcast rights are property of Disney-owned ABC. And so is the new NBA Experience is coming to Disney now.
