Actress Edie Falco Visits Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Today, Edie Falco visited Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. She was visiting Walt Disney World Resort with her family. Edie recently signed on to star as General Ardmore in James Cameron’s upcoming Avatar sequels.

Pandora – The World of Avatar is a unique partnership between Walt Disney Imagineering, James Cameron and Lightstorm Entertainment that brings to life the vivid, authentic experience of an alien world. The land celebrates the magic of nature, where guests can walk among floating mountains and wonder at bioluminescent fauna and flora. Guests also can fly on the back of a banshee during an exhilarating ride over the vast moon of Pandora on the Avatar Flight of Passage attraction, or journey deep into the rainforest to see the Na’vi Shaman of Songs in the Na’vi River Journey attraction.

Play Disney Parks Mobile App Adding 2 New Interactive Experiences at Walt Disney World Resort

Two new interactive experiences are coming soon to the Play Disney Parks mobile app, which turns wait time into play time and offers guests a variety of fun activities to enjoy together.

Stories of the Enchanted Gallery at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort will be the first Play Disney Parks experience based at a Disney Resort hotel and will allow you to bring the art-filled walls of the lobby to life while checking in or enjoying your stay. Through the app, you’ll become your own animator, creating themed art that transforms into living, breathing stories inspired by “Finding Nemo,” “The Lion King,” “The Little Mermaid” and “Cars.”

The ACE Guide to Pandora: Valley of Mo’ara Edition at Disney’s Animal Kingdom will enable you to join Alpha Centauri Expeditions (ACE) on an adventurous journey as you explore the colors, cultures and creatures of Pandora. Scan your surroundings for exotic lifeforms, create indigenous music and experience other interactive gameplay alongside your friends and family while learning all about this alien moon through interesting facts, trivia and activities. This experience can be accessed anywhere within the park, but is especially great when waiting in the queue line at the very popular Avatar Flight of Passage attraction.

You’ll also be able to earn, collect and share several new Play Disney Parks achievements as part of these new experiences. And, while in the app, keep your eyes (and ears) open for some great new Apple Music* playlists featuring songs inspired by Disney animated films, Disney lullabies and even classic Disney tales read aloud.

Since debuting in June, the Play Disney Parks app has immersed guests further in the Disney stories they know and love, through themed games, Disney trivia, digital achievements, music and more – whether they are playing on Main Street, U.S.A. or waiting in line at beloved attractions.

Be sure to download the app from the App Store or Google Play to be among the first to enjoy these latest enhancements. There’s many more exciting additions in development for the app at both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort, so stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for future updates.

Na’vi River Journey at Pandora – The World of Avatar Remains Closed Today (4/27) Due to Technical Problems

Na’vi River Journey at Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom will remain closed today, April 27, due to technical problems.  Both Pandora attractions, Avatar Flight of Passage and Na’vi River Journey have been experiencing difficulties this week with both attractions shut down for the entire day on Wednesday, April 25.  Avatar Flight of Passage returned to normal operations yesterday, however Na’vi River Journey remained closed.

There is no official word from Disney for the reason of the closure, however internet chatter suggests it might be related to the fire detection system.  Both attractions are housed in the same building.

The Na’vi River Journey attraction in Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom takes guests on a lyrical adventure sailing in reed boats down a mysterious, sacred river hidden within the bioluminescent rainforest. The journey culminates in an encounter with a Na’vi shaman, who sends positive energy out into the forest through her music.
