In our latest photo report, we catch up on Pandora: The World of AVATAR, Rivers of Light, and all of the other goings-on around Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park. Get ready for a wild time!
Welcome to Disney’s Animal Kingdom
Pandora: The World of AVATAR
I decided to take a walk down to the bus loop at Animal Kingdom to see the progress on Pandora: The World of AVATAR. This area offers an interesting view of the construction.
Small glimpses of the land are available from the Rainforest Cafe park entrance.
Steel is still going up on the ground level of the land, for what we don’t know.
As more and more trees are planted and the surrounding ones grow in, it is becoming harder to see the construction from some angles.
More of the alien lampposts have gone up along the bridge.
For some reason, there is a second set of construction walls behind the first.
Most of the bridge between Discovery Island and Pandora has been uncovered.
Some strange and colorful plant life and mushrooms are “growing” on the bridge, it looks like they may even light up.
New Starbucks Mug
A new Disney Parks exclusive Starbucks mug was recently released.
Flame Tree Barbecue
Work continues on the expansion of the Flame Tree Barbecue restaurant.
Rivers of Light
Rumors continue to swirl that guests at Destination D: Amazing Adventures will see Rivers of Light first, and some visible work in the viewing area leads us to believe we are nearing the first soft-opening of the show.
One of the boats that will be in the show was docked and charging by the viewing area.
Maharajah Jungle Trek
The new monkey species has still not debuted along the Maharajah Jungle Trek.
Flights of Wonder
We keep waiting for them to finish the coverings added to the Caravan Theater, but it may just be finished and unfortunately this is what the roof looks like.
Tree of Life Trails
Work continues on the trail behind the Tree of Life. This has to be opening soon, right?
Additional Guest Relations
Disney is testing out a second guest relations location near Kilimanjaro Safaris for a limited time.
This and That
I was feeling artsy with my glazed almonds. Alright, I’m just trying to be EasyWDW I guess.
Vinylmation Designer Series 2 was recently released.
Prepackaged iPhone 7 and 7 Plus phone cases are slowly appearing in the parks.
A new snowman antenna topper is available as well.
