Pandora Opens at Disney’s Animal Kingdom
Disney has announced the opening date for Pandora and it is May 27, 2017. This is the same day Universal Orlando Resort opens it’s third theme park – Volcano Bay. So there is so much to see this year in Orlando Florida.
If you have not already heard, Disney has been building Pandora at their Animal Kingdom park in Florida and it’s been a good six years since it was announced. Disney is fantastic at story telling so even if you have not seen the Avatar film you will be immersed in this new land.
Disney Parks Blog announces the opening on their website; “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.”
