One of the most impressive scenic views in all of Disney's new Pandora - The World of Avatar fantasy land at the Animal Kingdom theme park near Orlando, Florida. It can be found near the entrance of its immersive thrill ride, Avatar Flight of Passage.
Your journey to Pandora takes place long after the conflict in James Cameron's blockbuster 2009 movie, but rusted clues to the past remain, like this security-camera tower repurposed into a lantern post.
A trail map greets visitors at the entrance of Pandora's Valley of Mo'ara. This human-friendly area is maintained with help from the Pandora Conservation Initiative.
But how did you travel so quickly from Earth to a moon 4.4 light-years away in the Alpha Centauri star system? With the help of tour company Alpha Centauri Expeditions, of course. (Funny thing about interstellar travel; the brain can't recall time spent in suspended animation.)
Plant life on Pandora is very strange, so be careful what you touch. Human interaction with this distressed plant may release spores. (The spores are actually quite refreshing.) Named flaska reclinata, its main benefit is to purify atmospheric toxins, which makes it easier for human visitors to breathe.
Joe Rohde, one Disney's top "imagineers," led the the design and creation of Pandora. His team worked in partnership with James Cameron's film production company to bring this land to life. The goal was to make sure guests would enjoy getting immersed in this alien world, even if they didn't watch or remember Cameron's 2009 film.
Satu'li Canteen is where the good grub can be found. This once was the main mess hall of the Resources Development Administration (RDA) in the movie "Avatar." It's now run by Alpha Centauri Expeditions and redesigned with colorful Na'vi items. (And yes, you can get Coca-Cola in this star system.)
Merchandising! Here's where you can buy blue Na'vi tails and Na'vi ears, and plush versions of all the Pandoran creatures.
You can even make a custom Na'vi action figure that looks like you. No really, they scan your face. For $75 (£58, AU$101), you can pick it up later that same day. It comes with a cute loin cloth, but you can buy other accessories.
