What to Expect at Animal Kingdoms’s Pandora The World of Avatar

THIS POST MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. PLEASE READ OUR DISCLOSURE FOR MORE INFO.
Disney recently announced an opening date of Saturday, May 27, 2017, for Animal Kingdom’s newest edition, Pandora – The World of Avatar. This new land is inspired by Academy-award winning filmmaker James Cameron’s box-office hit, “AVATAR.” The 12-acre land will immerse guests in the lush world of Pandora about a generation after the film’s human-Na’vi conflicts. Despite having never watched Avatar I am still really excited for the opening of this new Animal Kingdom expansion. Let’s take a look at all the new Avatar addition!

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. This is how Disney described this attraction on their preview website.

In this expedition, you’ll experience the vast natural world of Pandora in all of its glory—from the air, on the back of a mountain banshee.

This winged predator is one of the most important and culturally significant animals to the Na’vi. Flying on a banshee is an important rite-of-passage for the Na’vi and now, you will get the chance to test yourself. Soaring through ancient stone arches, under floating mountains and over the lush landscape, this expedition is an experience like no other.

For more of what to expect on this boat ride it’s best to refer to Disney’s official description.

Climb aboard a reed boat and soon you’ll see that on the sacred Kaspavan River, every moment tells a story, and every bend sings a song. This expedition into the rainforest deep within the Valley of Mo’ara will take you right into the middle of Pandora and Na’vi culture. Traveling into the darkest part of the forest, you’ll find yourself surrounded by a canopy of exotic glowing plants and amazing animals on the move. Listen closely and you’ll hear the Na’vi Shaman of Songs as she fills the forest with beautiful music about the sacred bond between nature and ourselves.

According to Disney’s website here you can, “Wet your whistle at this popular drink stand run by an expat who fell in love with Pandora – The World of Avatar and never left.”

Pongu Pongu means “Party Party” in the language of the Na’vi. This new drink location welcomes weary travelers to try a bioluminescent frozen cocktail or indigenous beers. The main feature seems to be a sweet treat, pictured above, that you won’t find anywhere else! Could this be the next Dole Whip?
