    When will Avatar be open?

    Welcome back to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Gene!

    What an exciting time to plan a trip to Walt Disney World! Recently, Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek announced that Pandora-The World of Avatar will open in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park in summer 2017. There will be the family-friendly Na'vi River Journey, a "jaw-dropping" Avatar Flight of Passage and details from the film layered throughout the land. New images of Pandora reveal details such as dining and shopping options as well; it all looks so beautiful!

    For a hint of the incredible amount of detail Imagineers have included in Pandora, check out this Alpha Centauri Expeditions video of The Na'vi River Journey Shaman welcoming guests to Pandora. I can hardly wait to visit!

    Keep checking Disney Parks Blog for the latest news on all things Pandora, Gene. I am sure that there are going to be many exciting images, videos and announcements in the months to come.

    Send more questions as you think of them, too; we love to help!
