Hey Thrill Seekers,
On the 8th January 2014 Disney representatives including George Kalogridis, president of Walt Disney World Resort; Meg Crofton, president of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Operations, United States and France and Tom Staggs, chairman, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts dug the first holes for what will become Pandora, the fictional World shown in James Cameron’s blockbuster film Avatar.
The new land will be located in Disney’s Animal Kingdom and will be part of the plan to make Animal Kingdom a true full day park.
Tom Taggs said;
Disney’s Animal Kingdom is already home to some of our guests’ favorite attractions. With Avatar, we are adding a spectacular new world and an exciting set of attractions unlike any our guests have experienced. The expansion now under way will make the park a true full-day, must-see experience.
There has been no official time scale released for Avatar Land but the expansion represents the largest in Animal Kingdoms history.
You can view original concept art for Avatar Land here. For me this is one of Disney’s most exciting future projects and I can’t wait to see how the Land pans out.
