Exciting news from the land of Pandora! Just moments ago on The Walt Disney Company Q1 FY17 Earnings call, Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger shared that Pandora – The World of Avatar will open at Disney’s Animal Kingdom on May 27. We can’t wait to explore this new land when it opens just a few short months from now.
We’ve been following the creation of Pandora – The World of Avatar since it was announced in 2011, and even got a sneak peek at some of the amazing and innovative new ways the land will immerse guests at Destination D: Amazing Adventures. Explorers will marvel over the unbelievable floating mountains and bioluminescent plants, soar through the world of Pandora atop a Banshee on Avatar Flight of Passage, and sail through a bioluminescent rainforest on Na’vi River Journey. Weary travelers can quench their thirst at Pongu Pongu, or grab a bite at Satu’li Canteen, and souvenir shoppers can explore Windtraders for Na’vi cultural items, toys, science kits, and more.
We can’t wait to explore this brand new land! Stay tuned to D23 for more exciting Disney updates.
