The moment is here! Well… it will be on May 27th. I was so thankful to have the opportunity to get a chance to see the world of Avatar (the largest expansion since the Animal Kingdom opened) added to Disney’s the Animal Kingdom and no words could describe how many dreams came true for me.
During our preview of Pandora at the Animal Kingdom we had the chance to check out the new rides, Flight of Passage and The Nav’i River Journey, the menu at the Satu’li restaurant and the new Avatar merchandise at Windtraders.
There are two new rides at Pandora in Animal Kingdom: The Flight of Passage and the Na’vi River Journey.
The Flight of Passage lets you bond and ride on the back of your very own Mountain Banshee. It is a 3D world, but I feel like it is more like a 4D ride because while you see the beautiful mountain tops, I could feel mist off the waterfalls and smelled the flowers in the caves. It is an experience for all the senses. Check out a clip from the ride:

mmm… time for a drink at Pongu Pongu
The new line of products available at the new store will make me go broke. They are offering it all from picture frames, kids clothing, toys, adopt your own banshee and even a Na’vi translator!
Here is a clip of Steven Miller, the Merchandise Communications Manager, talking about the translator:
