ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Disney's latest themed area will open in May, and while it's based on a blockbuster movie, it will be a place ripe for Instagram and selfie opportunities.
The Orlando Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/2oYm0wm) Pandora: The World of Avatar will open May 27.
The theme park provided a media tour Saturday. The 12-acre land is in Disney's Animal Kingdom.
Designers aimed to immerse visitors into a new land they could enjoy without necessarily knowing the plot line of "Avatar," a movie that came out almost a decade ago.
Pandora is a land filled with Instagram opportunities. The hallmark is the 156-foot-tall "floating mountain" structure. There are also gardens with plants the colors of avocado, pomegranate and mangoes. One looks like a stained glass lamp from a Salvador Dali painting.
