It’s the respect for nature that makes Pandora-The World of Avatar an integral part of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park. According to Joe Rohde (Imagineer, and an important figure in the original development for Disney’s Animal Kingdom) both the Avatar Films and Animal Kingdom Park are governed by the same intrinsic values of nature – The idea that nature is supreme and we should understand and respect nature. Secondly, the idea that adventure is not only physical but developmental, and it has the capacity to transform guests. Pandora is a world filled with immersive adventures, and surely you will be a different person altogether after the experiences.
