    Hi! Just curious, where exactly is the world of Pandora going to be in the Animal Kingdom? Thanks!

    Hi Molly!

    It is an exciting time at the Animal Kingdom Theme Park at Walt Disney World. The new land called Pandora-World of Avatar is set to open to the public on May 27th. I was fortunate to get a sneak peek this past weekend and all I can say is WOW! If you are planning a visit to Disney you must put this on your itinerary during your stay. There will be two new attractions with the Na'vi River Journey being a family ride where all ages can enjoy the journey on the water in search of the Shaman. The second attraction will have a height requirement of 44 inches and it is called Avatar Flight of Passage. It is an amazing journey on the back of a Banshee soaring over the land of Pandora.

    To reach this great new area you will need to enter the park and turn left at the Tree of Life. The first walkway off to the left will take you to the land of Pandora. You will pass the new restaurant, Tiffins, just before you cross the bridge to another world. If you have been to the Animal Kingdom before it is where they had the Lion King show for many years as well as Camp Minnie Mickey.

    Once you enter you will be beyond amazed at this new land. There will be some interactive experiences, entertainment, the two attractions mentioned, a Tiki bar, quick service restaurant, and a wonderful merchandise shop. But plan on spending time just walking around and taking it all in especially the floating mountains. 

    I am so excited to bring my own family back as soon as possible for this great new Disney experience!
