The World of Avatar

Friday, 26 May, 2017

Located in Disney's Animal Kingdom, Pandora will transport guests into a world 4.4 light years from Earth where they will witness sights and sounds from the popular movie Avatar by filmmaker James Cameron. For a first time ever Disney parks live streamed the dedication of an entire land.

The all new Pandora: World of Avatar at Disney's Animal Kingdom officially opens to the public on Saturday, but WPTV got a sneak peak of the new attractions.

The moody darkness with bioluminescent pathways and plants make you feel like you're walking through your own little galaxy.

Right now, Satu'li Canteen is the only place where visitors can do this, but Disney will be rolling out the new process to other quick-service restaurants around the park later this year, according to the Walt Disney World blog.

No laptop ban on Euro flights to USA ... yet
With the USA pushing to expand the ban , and other groups suggesting it should be rolled back, we may be at a tipping point. ACI Europe said that 59 European airports now have direct services to the USA with a total of 3,684 weekly flights.

"I suspect we'll continue to see this roll out", Brandon Peters, a Walt Disney World ambassador, said.

An incredible new attraction has opened at Walt Disney World, which transports "Avatar" fans 4.4 light years away from Earth, to the handsome, magical world of Pandora.

And that's just one of the two new rides inspired by Avatar.
