    Floating mountains grace the sky while exotic plants fill the colorful landscape inside "Pandora - The World of Avatar," opening May 27, 2017, at Disney's Animal Kingdom. "Pandora - The World of Avatar" will bring a variety of new experiences to the park, including a family-friendly attraction called "Na'vi River Journey" and new food, beverage and merchandise locations.
