New ‘Connect to Protect’ Interactive Experience Coming to Pandora: The World of AVATAR

Connect to Protect is a new mobile adventure that invites guests to participate in conservation ‘missions’ with a digital ACE scientist while exploring the incredible Valley of Mo’ara and helps protect the habitats of at-risk animals here on Earth.

Utilizing the My Disney Experience App, you can “instant message” with one of the moon’s ecological specialists, Fitsimti “Fits” Buckley. Fits will guide you around Pandora, showing off some of the more exotic elements of the environment and sharing important messages about conservation along the way that can be applied both on Pandora and here on Earth.

After completing one or more missions, you will unlock a $10 contribution from Disney Parks, through the Disney Conservation Fund, or a $5 contribution just for discussing conservation. You will then get to choose how that contribution will help protect or restore habitats important to one of 10 threatened categories of animals: apes, elephants, butterflies, coral reefs, cranes, monkeys, rhinos, sea turtles, sharks & rays, and tigers.

‘Connect to Protect’ will begin May 27th at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

    Sounds like they pay YOU (in the form of a small charitable donation) to play. How unusual!! Am I missing something

    It’s a noble cause, but it seems odd to encourage people to bury themselves in their phones in a land as lushly detailed as this.
