Exciting New Entertainment & Dining Experiences

We can expect some exciting new entertainment experiences coming to Pandora in its future expansion. Imagine walking into a theater where you can watch live performances by Na’vi actors or listening to amazing music from Omaticaya bands while eating delicious dishes inspired by Pandoran cuisine! There’s no telling what kind of surprises Disney has up their sleeve when it comes to this incredible land, but one thing we do know is that it will be epic.

When Disney built Pandora in 2016, they left an empty plot of land on purpose as an expansion pad for future use. Now that Avatar: The Way of Water has become a blockbuster at the box office, the time is near to make use of this empty land and capitalize on Avatar’s popularity.

The centerpiece attraction right now is undoubtedly Avatar Flight of Passage, a thrilling 3D ride that takes visitors flying over the world’s iconic floating mountains and into a bioluminescent rainforest. It’s an incredible experience that people just can’t get enough of!

Rumors suggest that this ride could eventually be getting a sequel—Avatar Flight of Passage 2.0. If true, could take riders even deeper into Pandora as they soar (or dive!) through new environments – namely the coastal regions featured in Avatar: The Way of Water and experience virtual reality surprises along their journey.

Another popular attraction at Pandora is Na’vi River Journey, which takes visitors on a leisurely boat ride past beautiful bioluminescent plants and creatures as they float through caves and caverns along the Kaspavan River. This ride could also be getting an upgrade in the future with new scenes featuring Na’vi characters interacting with guests. While the ride already features advanced animatronic technology, increasing their number and interactivity will bring them to life like never before!
