    Hi, my son is 13 and basketball mad! We will be visiting in October and I wondered if it is necessary to purchase tickets for the NBA experience in advance or can we purchase them on the day? Also, how long would you estimate it takes to do the full tour?

    Hi Charlotte!

    Your son will have a blast “taking it to the hoop” at The NBA Experience at Disney Springs! Adding that experience to your Walt Disney World Resort vacation in October will be memorable for everyone. 

    You can certainly purchase your tickets the day that you arrive, but I predict there may be some crowds because of it new, so it might be a good idea to purchase your tickets in advance. I would predict a minimum of three hours may be sufficient, however, a half-day would not be out to the question to really to experience all that is has to offer.

    Have a magical experience!
