Th complete Rivers of Light soundtrack has found its way to YouTube... Absolutely stunning in my opinion (right up there with Illumintion's soundtrack)...additionally, the soundtrack clocks in at just over 18 minutes which makes this a reasonably long show (longer than Wishes or Illumintions) .Enjoy!

I believe I read somewhere, that the timeline of Pandora was several years or so after the movie, which is why the
mess hall is still there. That's all that remains of the old settlement.

That's what I read about the "backstory" of the place.

I can't wait until Avatar Land opens and the first complaints about how the islands aren't actually floating pop up on the TPR social media pages.

Like a lot of people I never really liked the movie but I'm still quite excited about Pandora as a land! It's funny how being in a tactile and physically immersive environment can make for such a great experience even if your not a fan of the work/IP on which it's based on. Again, like a lot of people I feel the same way about HP. I don't care for the movies but I love the theme park version of them.

Pandora - The World of Avatar Pandora - The World of Avatar
This new land will transport guests to the visually stunning world of Pandora. Here, guests will wonder at floating mountains and bioluminescent plants, and can join the Na’vi on two excursions that take adventure to the next level.

First, the family friendly Na’vi River Journey will send guests through a bioluminescent rainforest. Their journey will end in an unforgettable encounter with a Na’vi Shaman, a figure who has a deep connection to the life force of Pandora. And second, Avatar Flight of Passage will offer guests the jaw-dropping experience of exploring the world of Pandora atop a Banshee.

Guests will also be able to dine at Satu’li Canteen, grab a drink at Pongu Pongu or shop for Na’vi cultural items, toys, science kits, and more at Windtraders.

Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for more information.

ADMIN EDIT: Please do not post anything from WDWNT on our site. They are a horrible group of people who have been banned from Disney events for posting stuff that they know they shouldn't. We do not want to associate with them at all. thanks.

Since you'll be riding that thing like a motorcycle, I wonder how the crowd management side will work out.

I mean Tron works well because it is in China and it is a roller coaster...

I also wonder how bad the capacity of this new ride will be. It seems like it *could* be super, super, low.
