This morning, the Disney Parks Blog gave us a little more insight into a newly announced attraction for Pandora – The World of AVATAR coming to Animal Kingdom. The Na’vi River Journey is described as a family-friendly boat ride that takes place in a sacred river and bioluminescent rainforest.
The journey will begin with guests setting off on canoes and venturing down the river, passing by exotic plants and amazing creatures. The journey will culminate with a Na’vi shaman sending out positive energy through music and her connection to the forest.
Disney announced that this ride will open in 2017.
The other, previously announced, attraction coming to Pandora – The World of AVATAR is Flight of Passage. Flight of Passage is described as the centerpiece to the new land in Animal Kingdom. It will give guests a spectacular birds-eye view of the beauty of the world of Pandora. Flight of passage has been described by insiders as a Soarin’-type attraction.
