A new world hits Animal Kingdom.. Do we dare enter Pandora, the World of Avatar?

A world where every living thing that crawls, flies or squats in the mud wants to kill you and eat your eyes came to Disney on May 26th, 2017. Word is that select annual pass holders have even previewed the world.. and lived to tell their story.

Guests will be able to experience flying on top of a banshee, follow the Na’vi River, and walk under floating mountains. 

The adventurous may try to sample the international cuisine at the Satu’li Canteen. All energy is mainly borrowed, so to conserve energy at the canteen folks will be able to try out the relatively new Mobile Order system from Disney and skip the lines. You will actually be able to order and pay for your food using the Disney Experience App – click here to read about it on Disney’s official blog! All you’ll have to do is tap an “I’m here” button to pick up your food. 

Rumor has it that Disney is still working out the kinks.. for instance all rides may not yet be handicap accessible or accommodate the large boned, heavier group of visitors that may cross Pandora’s border...

Rumor also has it that lines are incredibly incredibly long..!! I hear that there may be an unknown back gate that people haven’t discovered with shorter lines…

Things to look out for: 

  1. Matching with a Banshee – For the low price of $49.95, guests will be able to take home a robotic shoulder banshee. A leash will wrap around the owner’s waist as the banshee responds to commands such as flying. Pick them up at the Wintraders shop in Animal Kingdom. 
  2. Also at Windtraders, by a set of Na’vi ears, a Na’vi tail, or a Na’vi translator to learn the language. 
  3. Interact with a collection of instruments at the Sacred Place of Song, Swotu Waya. 
  4. The Na’vi River Journey Boat ride with bioluminescent foliage and a singing Shaman of Songs at the journey’s end.

As they say, sometimes, your life boils down to one insane move.. Do you dare enter? I think we will, but my mind is not made up yet.


Let us know what you think!!
