Based on James Cameron’s mega-box-office hit, “Avatar,” the new 12-acre land will transport guests to a mystical world of bio-luminescent rainforests, floating mountains and soaring Banshees. Opening with the land will be two all-new state-of-the-art attractions:
Riding a magnificent Mountain Banshee, guests will soar across Pandora on Avatar Flight of Passage. This high-tech adventure will offer a thrilling flight through the jungles and floating mountains, and over the majestic oceans of this colorful world. On the family-friendly Na’vi River Journey guests will sail down a sacred river hidden within a glowing rainforest. The expedition will end in an unforgettable encounter with a Na’vi Shaman, a figure who has a deep connection to the life force of Pandora.
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.
Pandora – The World of Avatar completes a 6-year journey, as the land was first announced in Sept 2011,with construction starting in Jan 2014. The new land replaces Camp Minnie-Mickey, which closed Jan 5, 2014 to make way for Avatar construction.
