Talk about an amazing adventure! Destination Dguests were the first to learn that Pandora – The World of AVATAR will open at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in summer 2017. The land is sure to be a highlight for all Disney fans, including Bob! When we asked him what new offering he is most excited to experience, Bob said, “everything in Pandora. From the placemaking to the two extraordinary attractions that will be in that land—both the Na’vi River tour as well as the Banshee attraction. These promise to set new high-watermarks for our experiential magic that we give our guests. And as a fan and as the Chairman of the Parks, I can’t wait to see this in real action.”

We can’t wait either! Pandora – The World of AVATAR promises to be an unbelievably innovative land, from the bioluminescent forests to the two attractions. When we asked Bob for more details about the Banshee attraction, he shared that “it’s multi-sensory in a way that raises the bar higher than we’ve ever raised the bar before. There are elements of it that you will say are familiar, but the way things are integrated create a form of reality that we’ve not yet experienced.”

Bob also shared some never-before-seen images from the new land:

This bridge, located near Tiffins Restaurant, will be the entry point to Pandora – The World of AVATAR.

Satu’li Canteen, featuring Na’vi art and cultural items, will be the main eatery in Pandora – The World of AVATAR.
