Walt Disney World Opens
Pandora – The World of Avatar
Pandora – The World of Avatar officially opened to guests on May 27 at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World. The opening of this new, hugh land made history for Disney’s Animal Kingdom as the largest themed opening since the park first opened in 1998. This new opening saw some of the highest attendance for the park with Disney creating additional bus loops to accommodate all of the traffic. Disney even had cast members park at other locations around Walt Disney World in order to free up the cast parking lot to accommodate the amount of guests visiting Animal Kingdom. The land was close to capacity throughout the day with Disney cast members managing the entrance to the land to ensure that it didn’t get over capacity. The two new attractions saw 4 hour wait times throughout the day!!!
The opening of Pandora introduced a lot of great new Avatar themed experiences. There are two new attractions. Guests are able to sail down the mystical river to encounter a Na’vi shaman at Na’vi River Journey, or get the opportunity to soar over Pandora on the back of a mountain banshee at Avatar Flight of Passage. Very exciting for Animal Kingdom!!
