5 Interesting Facts About Disney’s New Land “Pandora: The World of Avatar”

Pandoraavatar (Image: Twitter/JeevesOrlando)

 

Walt Disney World has been bringing fairytales to life and making fantasy feel real since its opening in 1971. The magic of Disney captivates both small children and grown adults by turning dreams and imagination into reality. Disney’s newest land, Pandora: The World of Avatar, doesn’t miss the mark. In fact, Disney seems to have outdone itself.

Pandora: The World of Avatar opened to the public on May 27 inside of Disney’s Animal Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. The land, which is based on James Cameron’s 2009 blockbuster film Avatar, seems to transport visitors into the movie.  (Click here to learn more about the attractions, cuisine, and landscape of Pandora.) Here are five interesting facts about Pandora: The World of Avatar.

 

1. It Took 6 Years And a Half a Billion Dollars to Build

 

Cameron says Disney first approached him with the idea to transform his record-breaking sci-fi flick into a reality back in 2011.

“Disney came to me and said that we want to take your movie and turn it into a land. Not a ride, a land—a place to go,” Cameron told CNN in a video interview during a press preview of the land. “And I thought ‘OK, that’s a bit of a challenge. You guys are biting off a big one this time.’ [But] you know what, they delivered on every promise and beyond.”

Although the project seemed ambitious, Cameron signed on. It took six years and $ 500 million to build the land, but the detail and precision in creating Pandora have paid off.

 

 

2. You Won’t See Any Avatar or Na’vi Walking Around the Land

 

Although you may run into Disney “cast members” in character as Alpha Centauri Expeditions’ field guides or humans who migrated to Pandora, you won’t see an avatar or Na’vi walking around. As Avatar fans can recall, Na’vi are the humanoid species indigenous to Pandora and avatars are Na’vi’s operated by humans. These fascinating blue creatures were the stars of the Oscar-winning film. One of the biggest disappointments about Pandora, however, is the missed opportunity for visitors to interact with Na’vi. The only time visitors can get a glimpse of a few is on the Pandoran River ride.

3. Don’t Expect to Meet Mickey Mouse on Pandora

 

Despite being in Walt Disney World, there are no traces of Mickey, Minnie, or any traditional Disney characters on Pandora—which is a good thing. This helps give the alien land an authentic feel. In addition, although Disney music plays in the background in the other Disney World theme parks, the only sounds you’ll hear on Pandora are noises from its wildlife.

 

4. You Can Create an Avatar in Your Own Image

 

On Pandora, you’ll have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create a customized avatar doll in your own image inside of Pandora’s Windtraders gift shop. The miniature avatar doll cost $ 74.99.

 

5. Pandora Glows After Dark

At night, Pandora literally glows in the dark. Everything from the tropical plant life to the signature floating mountains to the ground is illuminated with neon lights after dusk. This gives visitors a feeling that they are actually experiencing life on another planet.

Since most of us can only spend a few days at Disney, we need to make every golden minute count. This means that each family or group member needs to choose ahead of time the specific rides, attractions, and dining options that fit their particular interests and age… and then plan accordingly. That’s where I and my team of “Disney Geeks” come in. We’ve already narrowed the challenge for you by concentrating on only The Disney’s Hollywood Studios, a popular Walt Disney World resort park, with its individual areas of Backlot, Mickey Avenue, Animation Courtyard, Sunset Boulevard, Hollywood Boulevard, and Pixar Place. We’ll show you how to use this book—with its maps, descriptions, notations of appropriate age ranges, and tips—and various Web sites, too, as interactive tools to educate you and the kids about every aspect of every ride, attraction, and restaurant. We want everyone to make wise “I wanna” choices and enjoy collaborating to: 1. Create a “Scrapbook of Anticipations” now, which becomes a take-along picture guide to what each person anticipates: • Doing each day in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. • Read, or allow the kids to read, the description of each ride or attraction. • Look at related pictures in the book or visit Web sites listed in the Appendix for photos. • Decide which rides and entertainment they want to experience. • Cut out/tape the pictures of each ride, attraction, entertainment and restaurant into the allotted spaces, just as my granddaughter is doing above. 2) Make a “Keepsake Photo Album” later, whic
