What words do you keep hearing, seeing, and using in day to day conversations? 

All the words not published, no, because in the end these specific grouping of words will have the publish button activated; hmm.

Are you having a good day? Is that code for what are you pissed about? Do headlights really need wipers? Not sure about the Google Maps update. 

Now below is a not review of Avatar land; you’ll see why, by the end.

I’ve been to Pandora World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World and have something to say. Meh…

So, first off, let’s get this out of the way; I’m not a fan of the Avatar movie. I should also inform you that, I haven’t watched Avatar all the way through; even after 5 attempts to watch the movie, sleep is the result. 

Avatar puts me to sleep, but so does Pineapple Express.

Disney started construction on Avatar Land in January of 2014 and I experienced a technical dress rehearsal for Pandora World of Avatar in May of 2017. During​ the construction of Pandora at Animal Kingdom many things were said, conversations about what ifs and why nots ran through communities like wildfire, but now…

Yeah, I lost interest and have not regained said interest; so… If you enjoyed the movie Avatar, like to go in a circle on a boat, or have a thing for flight simulators; then Pandora World of Avatar may be to your liking. If circles, simulators, and the movie don’t get you excited then you might find that you are in a new land of disappointment.

First Flight to Pandora World of Avatar

We made the journey to Pandora World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World for a special dress rehearsal open to Annual Passholders. A future trip with Alpha Centauri Expeditions is being scheduled for a night time visit; more than likely on a night with 11 – 1am extra Magic hours. Excited to see this new land come alive after the Sun sets on Animal Kingdom. Our first trip to Pandora was a day trip, the Sun was hot and the Sun was bright. Rides were rode; they were both nice, well put together and a welcome retreat from the oppressive afternoon Sun.

Na’vi River Journey the Avatar boat ride was added to our My Disney Experience plans as a Fastpass and linked to our Magicbands, while Avatar Flight of Passage used paper Attraction Passes.

The new land at DAK has a vast open area with the Floating mountain range as the centerpiece of Pandora.

With a little help, the colors of Avatar pop.
