Earlier this week some leaders from Disney Parks and Resorts and Lightstorm Entertainment were at Animal Kingdom for the groundbreaking of the biggest expansion in Animal Kingdom’s history. Don’t you love the blue shovels?
This area is being designed by Walt Disney Imagineering and James Cameron along with Lightstorm Entertainment. This will be a unique and different experience, unlike anything ever seen at a Disney park. Guests will experience the amazing and unique wonders of Pandora when they fly with banshees and explore a rich natural environment with mountains that float and interactive plants that glow at night.
Check out the video:
“Disney’s Animal Kingdom is already home to some of our guests’ favorite attractions,” said Tom Staggs, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. “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.”
This week’s groundbreaking is just the beginning for the park. Future plans also include the debut of a new evening show, and a new nighttime version of Kilimanjaro Safaris.
Check out the Disney Parks Blog for updates in the future on this expansion.
