AVATAR-Inspired Land Coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom

From io9 on Gizmodo:

As most of us are patiently twiddling our thumbs waiting for Disney to open its Star Wars lands, James Cameron’s Avatar is going to beat it into the parks. Pandora: The World of Avatar will open in 2017 at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Florida and io9 can exclusively reveal that Cameron himself, along with his producer Jon Landau and Disney Imagineer Joe Rohde, will be on hand at the upcoming D23 Destination D event in November to reveal brand new details about the 12-acre immersive theme park section.

Taking place November 19 and 20 at Disney’s Contemporary Resort at Walt Disney World Resort, D23 Destination D: Amazing Adventures is open only to D23 Fan Club members but you can read more about it here. The event takes place on the years the D23 Expo doesn’t and, addition to the Cameron panel, there will be events based on the Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean and more.

I don’t know about you, but there are times when planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming! There are so many options, where to stay, when to go, is this the best price. So, I want to introduce you all to Cindy Minor and the team at Small World Big Fun. They will help you plan your Disney vacation for FREE. Contact them today!

  • Don’t believe it…D23 only tries to build hype for these type of events and seldom delivers. Their mission seems to be to temporarily drive up membership by allowing new members to believe they actually have a chance to attend (see the Tower of Terror event for the latest farce). Pretty fraudulent way to do business, but evidently it works for them.

  • I really hope it’s as lush as the illustration depicts. My main gripe with New Fantasyland is that the original drawings made it look like a true forest. In Joe Rohde I will trust.
