Avatar Breaks Ground at Animal Kingdom

As a great follow up from the last story I posted about Camp Minnie Mickey closing at Animal Kingdom, the Disney Parks Blog has shared news of an official ground breaking for the Avatar themed land that took place this past week.

Seen above, park officials and the team behind the Avatar films use giant Na'vi themed shovels to mark the occasion - fitting as the new land will take visitors into Pandora to experience all the magic and mystery it has to offer.

Now that the dirt will start to fly on the new land, much more exciting updates are sure to come quickly.  There's still quite a length of time to wait before any guests step food in Pandora, and no official opening date as been released yet - but 2017 seems to be the rumored year for an opening.
