The multi-year and largest expansion in Disney's Animal Kingdom history, the new land will invite Walt Disney World Resort guests to experience the wonders of Pandora when they fly with the banshees, encounter the Na'vi and explore a rich cultural environment with mountains that float and interactive plants that glow at night.
