The Avatar Theme Park is called Pandora – The World of Avatar. If you can remember, Pandora is the breathtakingly beautiful fictional world in which the 2009 movie takes place. In 2017, Walt Disney World will open its doors to the Avatar theme park.

The Avatar theme park will transport guests to a visually stunning world complete with floating mountains and bioluminescent plants. At the Avatar theme park, guests will be able to experience two expeditions that will truly push adventure to the next level. The family friendly Na’vi River Journey will send guests down a sacred river hidden within a bioluminescent rainforest. Their journey will end in an unforgettable encounter with a Na’vi shaman, a figure who has a deep connection to the life force of Pandora. And second, the Avatar Flight of Passage excursion will offer the jaw-dropping experience of riding on a Banshee over the world of Pandora.

The Avatar theme park is set to open at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom later in 2017. You will be able to have a unique family experience that any fan of the popular Avatar franchise will love.

The Avatar theme park opening in 2017 will start to generate some hype for the first of the four Avatar sequels, which is set for release in 2018. The other three will be released in 2020, 2022 and 2023 respectively.
