Photo Report: Pandora – The World of Avatar is Truly Immersive

For years, plenty of people including myself asked why did Disney purchase the rights of Avatar?  Who thought this was a good idea?  It was announced in 2011 and then took three years to just break ground on the land, then another three to open.  Needless to say, people had their doubts.  Even me!  Truth me told, I wildly dislike the film Avatar.  I think it’s incredibly overrated and gawk when people tell me it’s their favorite film.  I can easily get a better film and story from Disney’s Pocahontas, which Avatar is pretty much that, but in space.  But that’s not what this article is about.  It’s about the brand new land at Animal Kingdom.

As time progressed, and we began to see more and more of this future immersive land, i started to get excited.  Disney was promising big things and I was hoping (for theme park fans and Disney’s sake) that I walk into this land, look around and say to myself, “You Continue reading “Photo Report: Pandora – The World of Avatar is Truly Immersive”

As we get closer to opening, new details are revealed for Pandora – The World of Avatar

If you remember back to when Disney’s Animal Kingdom first opened its doors, the park was missing a few key things: signs and maps.  Lead Imagineer Joe Rohde wanted guests to explore the park as if they were exploring the land for real in life. But this frustrated guests and many could not find their way around or the attractions they were looking for.  Eventually, signs were added, but only general ones.  Not for the attractions, but just the lands.  And then, of course, maps.  So the concept didn’t quite work out as well as Joe Rohde had hoped.

Well now, it looks like Joe Rohde is getting his wish once again for Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  According to reports, neither of the two attractions in Pandora – The World of Avatar will have much as far as signage goes.  This is due to a major theme and design Continue reading “As we get closer to opening, new details are revealed for Pandora – The World of Avatar”
