It has been quite a while since we looked at the construction of Pandora: The World of AVATAR from the skies above Animal Kingdom, so with that being said, we are taking another exclusive look from above today:

Awesome update! Thanks so much for this. I’m very excited for, not only the 2 rides in this land, but the overall ambiance. It’s going to be a place where one will want to hang out and enjoy the atmosphere. The land itself will be a significant attraction.

I would pay extra to take a behind the construction tour of the facility. As a project manager in construction would love to see the
work being done.
