The D23 EXPO begins today in Anaheim, with Walt Disney Imagineering giving a first glimpse of the AVATAR project coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom in 2017.


The huge scale model is on display for the first time and really shows the detail and depth that we can expect to see in this new land. 

The mess hall restaurant can be seen to the right, with the mountains at the back of the model disguising the simulator show building.


The Walt Disney Parks and Resorts show floor pavilion also gives D23 EXPO 2015 guests a look into the much-anticipated Shanghai Disney Resort.
