Now is an exciting time for the Walt Disney World Resort as we unveil groundbreaking, never-before-seen opportunities for meeting and event groups. With packed agendas and a full day of meetings, attendees are always looking to make the most of their free time. Introducing, a new, immersive location to explore: Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park.

The concept behind this awe-inspiring world began with Director James Cameron’s vision for the Avatar film series. Set in the future, Pandora’s inhabitants seek to improve and restore the fictional universe’s ecosystem. Although Pandora and Disney’s Animal Kingdom are two different worlds, they share the same intrinsic values of preserving nature, discovery through adventure, and giving back to the planet.    

This summer, attendees staying at select Walt Disney World hotels can explore this exciting new land beyond regular Park hours.* Nightly Extra Magic Hours will be offered through the summer to provide attendees with an additional opportunity to enjoy everything the new land has to offer. 

For attendees wanting to explore their adventurous side, they can navigate a mystical river on the Na’vi River Journey or fly on the back of a banshee on the Avatar Flight of Passage. When looking to the night sky, they will find the floating mountains in the Valley of Mo’ara. Exploring Pandora is the perfect bonding opportunity for attendees as they experience exotic plants that come to life with beautiful bioluminescence and learn about the Na’vi culture through totems and other cultural items. 

Attendees can also stop for a bite to eat at the Satu’li Canteen, where they can discover healthful dishes and familiar flavors from another world. For attendees looking to quench their thirst, the Pongu Pongu is the perfect place to network and sip on the specialty “bioluminescent” frozen cocktail or other beverages indigenous to Pandora. 

As an added incentive, attendees staying at select Walt Disney World hotels can reserve Disney FastPass+ selections for Pandora – The World of Avatar attractions up to 60 days prior to check-in. If attendees have an existing reservation at one of our Walt Disney World hotels, they will receive communication notifying them of the nightly Extra Magic Hours.  

There are always new reasons for attendees to return and explore the most recent changes to Walt Disney World theme parks. With the development of Star Wars and Toy Story-themed lands, these new additions promise to make the attendee experience even more magical at Disney destinations.
