Wonder what food and drink the Na’vi enjoy? Swing by the new restaurant or fun lounge for a taste!

Pandora at Disney’s Animal Kingdom: The Experience

It’s clear that you’ll need to try Pandora at Disney’s Animal Kingdom during both day and night to really see it all. During the day, explore and enjoy the greenery, hikes, rides and more. At night, it all lights up with the ‘energy’ giving it an almost dreamlike quality.

Seeing photos of the floating mountains is one thing, but I can’t wait to see how large they are in person. What a work of art and wonder! You can expect waterfalls and meandering streams, really making you feel that you’ve been transported into the Book your next magical vacation.

Pandora at Disney’s Animal Kingdom: Shopping

Let’s be honest, shopping is half the fun at the parks, right?! You can swing by Windtraders for Na’vi cultural items, toys for the kiddos, even science kits and more. Maybe they’ll have some stuffed animals of the creatures on Pandora, or perhaps your own goggles for your next banshee ride.
