    NBA Experience - My son is very excited about this but I have to say that although I will take him, I am not interested. Will I have to purchase tickets for each of us to enter or just for him to participate in activities?

    Boo-yah, Melissa, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Let's lace 'em up and talk hoops at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Like you, I have a young sports fan in my family who is over-the-top excited to check out The NBA Experience when it opens on August 12 at Disney Springs. Just today, he was lamenting the fact that he'll be back in school on opening day. Guess we'll be planning a weekend jaunt over to Walt Disney World to take the court at this exciting new venue soon after it opens!

    The NBA Experience will require admission for each Guest to enter. Tickets for The NBA Experience are available now, and you can purchase them online in advance if you like. As I understand it, most of the activities will be included in your admission.

    From the Disney Parks Blog posts I've read, it sounds like The NBA Experience will feature lots of hands-on activities that you might enjoy doing with your son, even if basketball isn't your jam. I get it - I'm pretty much all thumbs myself, but I'll take a couple of shots at the hoop now and then. You can always challenge your son to a little friendly competition!

    Melissa, after you've taken one for the team and accompanied your son to his basketball utopia, there are plenty of mom-approved things to do right there at Disney Springs! You can do a little shopping, enjoy a tasty dinner, or maybe pick up a scrumptious sweet treat. Just remind your son that he owes you big time!

    I hope this helps you and your sports fan have a slam-dunk time at Walt Disney World, Melissa. Please come back and see us again if you have any more questions. We're always ready to suit up and take our best shot to help Guests plan their Disney days!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
