Late last night, Disney confirmed the news that we’ve all been waiting to hear...PANDORA – World of Avatar is opening really soon and they even have a date in the diary! The new land will officially open on the 27th May, revealed Disney CEO Bob Iger in The Walt Disney Company’s Q1 FY17 Earnings call.
When PANDORA – World of Avatar opens, it will be an immersive bio-luminescent land with floating mountains and glowing plants which react to the world around them. There will be two brand new attractions – the family friendly Na’vi River Journey boat ride and Avatar Flight of Passage, where guests will ride on an Avatar Banshee in a thrilling, jaw-dropping exploration of the world of Pandora. Both rides promise to be amazing additions to Disney's Animal Kingdom's collections of thrill and family fun rides although we think the main joy of the new land will be in the incredible immersive decoration!
Alongside the brand new attractions, guests can dine at the Satu’li Canteen, take a pit-stop at the Pongu Pongu bar or head into Windtraders for some Pandora souvenirs.
We can’t wait to see the new land opened in all its glory on the 27th May. If you can't either, make sure to check out our selection of great-value Walt Disney World tickets.
