Early this week, Disney brought out the shovels to officially break ground on Avatar Land. This brand new land will be found in the former location of Camp Minnie-Mickey, which closed earlier this week at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
According to Jon Landau, producer for Avatar, “Part of the allure of Avatar is the escapism. The thrill and excitement of going to Pandora.”
This new land will feature incredible theming that guests will get to interact with, such as experiencing riding a banshee, floating mountains, and interacting with plants that glow in the dark at night.
Avatar Land is a part of the overall transformation of Disney’s Animal Kingdom that will help to make it a full day park.
The land is expected to open sometime in 2017.
