Last week Walt Disney World made an exciting announcement! The park has partnered with James Cameron and Lightstorm Entertainment to bring the world of Pandora to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. AVATAR is coming to Walt Disney World! These breathtaking renderings give you an idea of how incredible and awe-inspiring this attraction will be. Imagine floating mountains, a nighttime jungle of bioluminescent plants that make sounds as they light up your journey.
You can even feel what it’s like to soar in the sky riding a Banshee!
In addition to this attraction, there will be new entertainment experiences brought to Animal Kingdom including a nighttime spectacular with floating lanterns, water screens, live music and moving animal imagery finish off the day with a bang! Live performers on Discovery island and a new nighttime version of the Kilimanjaro Safaris is also in the works.
Scheduled to open in 2017, the AVATAR-inspired land will be part of the largest expansion in Disney’s Animal Kingdom history.
Are you excited as we are? This new addition to Disney’s Animal Kingdom sounds amazing! I can’t WAIT to hear more about this incredible new collaboration!
