Animal Kingdom – Pandora: The World of Avatar – Opened 27th of May 2017
Disney’s Animal Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort is expanding. Pandora- The World of Avatar which officially opened in 2017. Inspired by the popular Avatar movie, the incredible land will be fully immersive, offering guests something totally unique. You’ll feel as though you’ve stepped straight into the movie as the world you’ve seen on screen comes to life before your eyes.
There will be two main attractions that are sure to become some of the park’s most popular rides. For the thrill seekers, Avatar Flight of Passage is an action-packed adventure that sends you soaring above Pandora atop a Banshee! For something a bit tamer (and ideal for families) Na’vi River Journey lets you explore a mysterious bioluminescent rainforest as you glide along a sacred river in a specially designed canoe. You’ll pass glowing plants, amazing creatures and finally get the chance to come face to face with a Na’vi shaman who’s singing voice can be heard echoing throughout the forest.
The entire land is visually stunning and is a must-see if you’re visiting. Take pictures of the iconic floating mountains from the movie, admire the beautiful scenery and colorful plants and watch in awe as the ground beneath you starts to glow. Whatever you do, don’t forget your camera!
That’s not all though! After exploring Pandora, quench your thirst at the eclectic Pongu Pongu or grab a bite to eat at the main restaurant Satu’li Canteen. Look out for the vibrant artwork and Na’vi cultural items adorning the walls.
