Chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company has announced that Pandora: The World of Avatar will be opening in Disney’s Animal Kingdom on May 27, 2017. The announcement was made by Iger on an earnings call with investors today.
The Disney Parks Blog had this description about the new land in Disney’s Animal Kingdom:
This new land will transport guests to the visually stunning world of Pandora. Here, guests will wonder at floating mountains and bioluminescent plants, and can join the Na’vi on two excursions that take adventure to the next level.
First, the family friendly Na’vi River Journey will send guests through a bioluminescent rainforest. Their journey will end in an unforgettable encounter with a Na’vi Shaman, a figure who has a deep connection to the life force of Pandora. And second, Avatar Flight of Passage will offer guests the jaw-dropping experience of exploring the world of Pandora atop a Banshee.
Guests will also be able to dine at Satu’li Canteen, grab a drink at Pongu Pongu or shop for Na’vi cultural items, toys, science kits, and more at Windtraders.
