27 May Opening Date for Pandora The World of Avatar at Disney's Animal Kingdom

inline imagePandora - The World of Avatar will open at Disney's Animal Kingdom on Saturday, May 27, it was announced today by Disney CEO Bob Iger during The Walt Disney Company Shareholders meeting.

Inspired by Academy-award winning filmmaker James Cameron's box-office hit, "AVATAR," the new 12-acre land will immerse guests in the lush world of Pandora about a generation after the film's human-Na'vi conflict.

The magical new land will transport guests to a mystical world of bioluminescent rainforests, floating mountains and soaring Banshees. Two main adventures will beckon Disney's Animal Kingdom guests:

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 colourful 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.

The expansion completes the transformation of Disney's Animal Kingdom from a day into nighttime theme park with captivating offerings and extended entertainment.

Pandora The World of Avatar is a creative collaboration by Walt Disney Imagineering, Cameron and Lightstorm Entertainment to bring to life the mythical world of Pandora.

Damnit. I'll be coming home on the 9th. Oh well, that'll have to wait until 2018. The most I can hope for is some sort of soft opening for public testing on the 7th, which will be my last visit to AK this year!

This was a nice unexpected bonus for us, I didn't think it would be open for when we go in August.

Does anyone know how this will impact on opening hours? Our adr window opens on Monday and I'm trying to book dinner but don't want to miss any of the night time stuff. The park hours don't seem to have changed though

Excited to see this, will be one of the last few days of the holiday. Although hoping it doesn't mean bumper crowds all round as Avatar-fans start booking holidays!
