Something new is coming to Pandora at Disney's Animal Kingdom! The Pandora Conservation Initiative (PCI) has engineered a 10-foot-tall Exo-Carrier, a "Pandora Utility Suit," used to study the wildlife, collect plant samples, and survive Pandora's terrain. The design of the exo-carrier suit is inspired by the Amplified Mobility Platform (AMP) suits of power armor from the "AVATAR" movie. You will be able to interact with its pilot, who is strapped into the cockpit of the exo-carrier and controls its powerful movements. Check the Times Guide or the My Disney Experience App the day of your visit for the latest information.

Purple Wall Gets a New Look at Magic Kingdom

The insta-famous "Purple Wall" in Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom has a new paint job. Instead of the solid light purple, the #DisneyWall now has a funky geometric design a little reminiscent of Spaceship Earth. It's still purple, but now in a variety of hues and shades. The good news is that there the new paint design is only on one section of the wall, so if you preferred the classic purple wall, you can still Instagram it. And if you have no idea what we're talking about or why you should care about the color of a wall at Disney, it's a famous photo stop for guests who like to use Instagram and has become a "thing."
