Na’vi River Journey announced for Pandora – The World of AVATAR

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.

Pandora Ð The World of AVATAR will bring a variety of new experiences to Disney's Animal Kingdom, including a family-friendly attraction called NaÕvi River Journey. The adventure begins as guests set out in canoes and venture down a mysterious, sacred river hidden within the bioluminescent rainforest. The full beauty of Pandora reveals itself as the canoes pass by exotic glowing plants and amazing creatures. The journey culminates in an encounter with a NaÕvi shaman, who has a deep connection to the life force of Pandora and sends positive energy out into the forest through her music. NaÕvi River Journey will open with Pandora Ð The World of AVATAR in 2017. Disney's Animal Kingdom is one of four theme parks at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. (Disney)
