At Destination D and Disney Parks Blog, the opening time was announced for Pandora – The World of Avatar. The area will open in Summer 2017. A bridge that serves as entry way to the new Animal Kingdom land has had scaffolding removed from it.
This bridge serves as a story marker as well. It’s a bridge built by a company that devastated the land, but is now reclaimed by a more eco-friendly touring company. It is where guests cross the bridge to begin their adventure in Pandora.
Inside Pandora, Na’vi River Journey will be a family boat ride set in a bio-luminescent forest. The conclusion will take passengers near a Na’vi Shaman. Avatar Flight of Passage attraction will be a thrill ride with guests riding Banshees over Pandora.
Images released revealed the restaurants and shops that will populate the rest of Pandora.
Satu’li Canteen will be the main restaurant. It’s theme will feature items of Na’vi art and culture. Windtraders will feature Pandora-centric items, but also science kits. Pongu Pongu is a drink location that has an eccentric theme based on having an ex-pat owner.
Pandora looks to be highly detailed and rich in a story. It will all open fairly soon, in Summer of 2017!
