World of Avatar at Walt Disney World – Construction Update
Pandora–The World of Avatar is a themed area currently being constructed in the south-west portion of Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park at the Walt Disney World, Florida. Sunday we made a quick visit to the park, mainly to check out the progress on Avatar Land. Construction walls surround the new area.
The area will be based upon the fictional exoplanetary moon, Pandora from James Cameron’s Avatar film series, and will include Pandora’s floating mountains, alien wildlife, and bio luminescent plants. The new land is expected to span several acres and feature multiple attractions, entertainment, audio-animatronics, 3-D holograms as well as retail, food and beverage outlets. The model below was released at 2015 D23 expo showing off what the new land will look like.
Construction began on January 10, 2014, with the land expected to open in early 2017.
