BREAKING NEWS: Disney Reveals New Pandora Details

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.

About Chad Nykamp

Husband, father and lover of all things Disney. Like every kid, I loved Disney and the couple trips I took to Disney World in my early years are good memories. But my obsession began in 2004 when we made our first family visit. It's hard to believe that we almost cancelled the trip because it seemed like a lot of work with 3 very little kids. We were hooked by the end of the first day. By day 3 we were planning our next trip back. By day 5 we were doing the math on DVC. And by the end of the vacation everyone was crying the blues that we had to leave. Since then, Disney World has become our favorite vacation destination, a hobby and now a home. We love the detail of the story telling and the memories of time spent with friends and family.
