We are just a few weeks away from the opening of Pandora: The World of AVATAR at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park, and now the park is getting the finishing touches ready for the large influx of guests they are expecting.

From the parking lot, you will notice a batch of new trees going up just behind Pandora.

Given time, the trees should grow in and block the view of the massive show buildings for the land’s two attractions.

Meanwhile, it appears as though a third bus loop will be added shortly, adding more bus stops for Disney Transportation, as well as another structure to hide the backstage area from the view of guests.

The new loop will be the closest to the park, just north of the two existing terminals.

Guests will enter and exit from this space, fairly close to the security checkpoint of the park.

Luckily, these do not take very long to construct, so it should be functional long before May 27th and the opening of Pandora.
