The happiest place on earth is about to get a lot happier for Avatar fans. In 2011, the company announced it would be building an Avatar-themed park within the Disney World Animal Park.
Recently, Disney released artist-concept art showing what the park might look like when it opens in 2017.
According to Disney’s blog, “As these concept renderings show in epic scale, in the world of AVATAR guests will encounter awe-inspiring floating mountains and wander through a nighttime jungle of bioluminescent plants that are alive with light and sound. Guests will also discover what it feels like to soar into the sky riding a Banshee.” http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2013/10/first-look-avatar-to-come-to-life-at-disneys-animal-kingdom/
Construction begins in 2014 and will be open to the public in 2017. If the Avatar theme park looks anything like the conceptual art, it promises to be an extraordinary experience for Avatar and Disney fans alike.
