Construction continues in earnest in Disney Springs’ West Side, where we’re eagerly awaiting the completion of the NBA Experience and Jaleo — with its quick service appendage Pepe. There’s been a lot of progress on both — including glorious copper-colored roofing at Jaleo!
How amazing is this roof design? The color seems to mimic Spanish roof tiles (concept art seemed to indicate a much more yellow/gold roof, so we’ll keep an eye on this), while the layers create visual interest.
Large lettering will spell J-A-L-E-O on windows spanning the entire building, and those seem to be up and completed!

To the left side of the building is a bright red, tiled exterior at the base of which will be the quick service spot Pepe.
Pepe signage is up and echoes the red and yellow seen elsewhere in the design.
In fact the whole left side of the building makes a huge statement in bright red! Such a vibrant addition to Disney Springs!
In contrast to Jaleo’s Spanish design, the NBA Experience in West Side is a play on metal and curves!
Exteriors are much further along now, and the overall look is much more fleshed out.
This large white curve appears to hold court over the entrance.
And the outline of players in action has begun on the upper portion.
Based on concept art, these figures will remain somewhat shadowy and undefined. But it’s a design that should stand the test of time no matter what star players come and go.
This modern, linear look is in keeping with some of the other modern/industrial design we’ve seen elsewhere in Disney Springs.
The left side of the building has a defined shape now, but its skeleton remains exposed for now.
Disney Springs has been growing and changing for years, and we’re excited to see these two new spots open in 2019!
And check out what else is coming to the Disney Parks this year!
