Construction is in full swing on the Pandora, the Avatar themed expansion at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Recently, at D23 Expo Japan, Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, shared new details on what fans can expect when the new land opens in 2017.
Pandora – The World of AVATAR will bring a variety of new experiences to the Park, including a family-friendly attraction called Na’vi River Journey. The adventure begins as guests set out in canoes and venture down a mysterious, sacred river hidden within the bioluminescent rainforest. The full beauty of Pandora reveals itself as the canoes pass by exotic glowing plants and amazing creatures. The journey culminates in an encounter with a Na’vi shaman, who has a deep connection to the life force of Pandora and sends positive energy out into the forest through her music.
As we near completion of the project, expect more updates on additional attractions. We will continue to share more details as we learn them. Be sure to keep up with all the news from Walt Disney World by signing up for our free email newsletter.
