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”
