Earlier this week, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts along with Lightstorm Entertainment participated in a ceremonial groundbreaking that kicked off the AVATAR-inspired expansion which will be the largest in Disney’s Animal Kingdom history. The new area, which will allow park guests to experience the amazing world of Pandora, will be designed by Walt Disney Imagineering in partnership with James Cameron and Lightstorm Entertainment. Some of the attractions mentioned include the ability to fly with banshees and explore a rich natural environment with mountains that float and interactive plants that glow at night.
The AVATAR expansion isn’t the only new thing that is in development at Animal Kingdom. The park will also be home to a new evening spectacular and a nighttime version of the ever-popular Kilimanjaro Safaris. The video below details some of the expansion ceremony and has some additional information about the expansion.
