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.

IMG_0069

Opening today, April 6th, is Universal Orlando’s newest attraction Race Through New York starring Jimmy Fallon.  It’s been in technical rehearsals for about a month, but thanks to a special Universal Orlando Annual Pass event, we actually get a chance to ride the new attraction last week!

If you’ve been keeping up with all of the details about the new attraction, you’ll know for one, it replaced Twister: Ride It Out.  The building was completely gutted and transformed to look just like 30 Rock on the outside and Studio 6B on the inside.   Continue reading “Race Through New York starring Jimmy Fallon exceeds expectations”
