Ground Breaking Held for AVATAR at Animal Kingdom

The official ground breaking ceremony for a new AVATAR-inspired land was held at Disney's Animal Kingdom this week. The new land is inspired by the world of Pandora from the film, replaces Camp Minnie Mickey, and other additions to the park will include night-time rides on Kilimanjaro Safaris and a new evening spectacular.

This news bulletin updates page 189 of PassPorter's Walt Disney World 2014.

Oooh - cool about the night-time rides on Kilimanjaro Safaris. I hadn't realised that. We did a night-time safari many years ago and we loved it and were really upset it didn't become a regular thing. :( The evening spectacular sounds intriguing as well, even if I'm still not wild about AVATAR land itself...
