Details emerge about Pandora at Disney’s Animal Kingdom


Knock knock. Who’s there? The Disney Parks Blog has released a few details about the all new Pandora-World of Avatar, coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom in 2017. Today they’ve released new concept art, and details about the family friendly boat ride that will take guests into the jungles of Pandora.


The Na’vi River Journey will takes guests on a bioluminescent tour through a sacred mystical river through the Pandora rainforest. Guests will venture out in canoes, and see the lights of the forest come to life.

The experience culminates in an encounter with a Na’vi shaman, who has a deep connection to the life force of Pandora and sends positive energy out into the forest through her music. The river journey will be an attraction for the entire family, and will be one of many different experiences.

Details about a few other experiences were released at this past summer’s D23 Expo.

Pandora-World of Avatar, is scheduled to open in 2017, with some of the other attractions slated for 2016.
