I didn't understand the size of the floating mountains until the pics from underneath, and the video of the guy walking thru. This seems seriously impressive!!!
And, knowing how much Robb and Elissa have a certain disdain for "simulator" type rides - their high endorsement of the "Banshee" ride, speaks VOLUMES!!
Never thought I'd say this - But, I'm REALLY looking forward to your next media day report!!
Yeah, you know how I feel about simulators, but this basically moves more than almost any other simulator on the planet. I spent half of my second ride just looking behind me at the mechanics of the ride vehicle which was incredible. Plus with the different seats it makes it feel like a real ride. Now that being said, towards the end of the ride you do this crazy barrel role maneuver and that quickly reminds me that I'm on a simulator and about to feel nauseous! Luckily that's right at the end!
I'm impressed with what Disney did with Pandora! The pictures look incredible. Based on your quotes, I think I would find it enjoyable since I'm not a big fan of simulators

AMAZING report!! Thank you so much for putting it together!
I'm visiting this summer with my Mom and this just made me very excited to see this land. Everything looks incredible with the attention to detail. The food looks good, the rides sound great. I can't imagine this land not being a huge win with the public.

I think I've fallen a little bit in love with Pandora. Whimsical and just a tad weird - doesn't get better than that! And, oh yes! Must have one of those baby banshees! MUST! I get good vibes that he/she'll get along with my Shih Tzu.
Thanks so much for taking us on this -- (choose superlative here:) -- awesome, unique, ultra-outstanding, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious ADVENTURE!
Thanks for sharing this. The pandora world looks very detailed and well-thought out. It is so much more than a gimmicky movie tie-in. This really gives me high hopes for the potential of Star Wars Land!
Wowza this looks amazing! Thank you Robb for posting the TR. I don't remember seeing a lot last year when i was at Disney except for a crane, always glad to see something new and amazing like Pandora go into Disney!

Wow! Pandora looks even more amazing than I expected. It's nice that they will open with not one, but two e-ticket rides (a thrill one and a family one). Pandora is what might make me finally pull a trigger on doing a Florida trip, although I've been wanting to do one for awhile. If I don't make it to Orlando this year then I will next year for sure.
A lot of people won't notice little details like this but I certainly will. I collect theme park merchandise bags and I think this one looks really cool.
