To create a completely immersive experience for the audience, the set design will encompass the space from the ice surface up through the air, drawing everyone into the story and closer to the characters. Families will feel that they are trekking up to the North Mountains with Anna, Kristoff and Sven, and they will tangibly experience the storm inside Elsa. Elsa’s magic will be enhanced by state-of-the art special effects while her emotions will be conveyed through powerful skating.
Producers Nicole Feld and Kenneth Feld have selected the brightest and most creative minds in the industry to put together this spectacular show.
I received an email from Disney about a month ago about a special annual passholder preview event of their newest attraction, Pandora: World of Avatar. This new area will not open to the public until May 27, and I knew we would not want to join the crowds upon opening. I jumped on the chance to bring my family to check out this new area of Animal Kingdom. I’m excited to share our adventure with you!
Pandora is the backdrop for the movie Avatar, a 2009 science fiction film. In the movie, humans are mining the mineral unobtanium by using avatars to interact with the native Na’vi tribe. It results in a great conflict, but the world of Pandora at Animal Kingdom is set a generation after the movie. I was worried that I would need to review my movie knowledge before visiting, but the signs and information available did a great job explaining the story.
The details from the floating mountains to the lush plant life, to the castmembers who stayed in character, did not miss anything. In our previous trips to Animal Kingdom this year, we always noticed the floating mountains, but it was not until we were standing under them that I truly appreciated their size and beauty.
My boys also LOVED the collection of drums they could play on under the floating mountain! Make sure to give them a try!
We visited Pandora from 3 – 5 pm so we did not enjoy any food during that time, but I did indulge in the Mo’ara Margarita from Pongu Pongu. DELICIOUS!
There are two attractions in Pandora: the Flight of Passage and the Na’vi River Journey, and they are completely different experiences.
The Flight of Passage ride is an amazing 3-D experience that immerses you in the experience of riding a banshee. It is so real that you actually feel the banshee “breathing” beneath you! I wasn’t sure how the ride would work, but of course Disney executed it beautifully. The best comparison I can offer is that of Soarin’ at Epcot. The sights, smells, and feeling of flying all reminded me of Soarin’, but with more of a thrill. We were not allowed to take photos inside the ride itself, but I snapped some pictures in the standby line and in the first room where they match you with an avatar. My 7 year old had a blast on this ride, but he is a bit of a thrill-seaker! The castmembers were sure to advise all guests that this ride requires you ride individually on a seat resembling a motorcycle, and some guests may not fit comfortably.
The Na’vi River Journey is a breathtaking, slow boat ride in the dark, surrounded by bioluminescent rainforest. The ride is a perfect respite from the Florida heat, and provides a quiet, soothing experience. The Na’vi Shaman of Songs serenade is amazing! Our whole family loved it!
There are tons of reviews and websites with info about these new attractions. None of them compare to the real experience! I hope you can find the time to visit Pandora: World of Avatar soon at Disney's Animal Kingdom!
