Avid fans have long been waiting for the opening of Disney's new "Avatar"-themed park at Disney World Orlando. Now, the long wait is almost over because Pandora will open its doors to the public on May 27 and will be located in Disney's Animal Kingdom.

Last December, Disney revealed a teaser video where fans saw the upcoming project and the development of the "Avatar"-themed park Pandora. After that, more videos and pictures were released and a website was even created for the park.

The Avatar-inspired themed park began construction back in 2014 and it was the Disney Imagineers are director James Cameron's Lights turn Entertainment who spearheaded the project's design. Daily Times reported that in February 2015, Disney Parks revealed the first ever concept art for Pandora which will be built in Disney's Animal Kingdom.

Pandora will really mimic how natural environments work in the real world. Forbes reported that the park will change its appearance and setting as the day goes by. For example, as the sun sets in the park, guests would be able to experience an entirely different setting where loud noises of animals fill the surroundings. The park literally changes its behavior from sunrise to sunset.

The park is really interactive where people can touch animals and plants and get a response. There's a spot in the park called the central drum circle which you can play with just like a regular drum. However, these drums are not your ordinary musical instruments but they are part of a living plant. Whenever you play with these drums at night, it creates lighting effects all throughout Pandora.

The storyline of the themed park takes place after James Cameron's movie. After the mining facility was destroyed, human biologists and scientists made an effort to make peace and help Pandora recover. The guests would be entering the park as ecotourists to learn and interact with the environment. The story also includes people who have lived in Pandora for a generation so this means guests would have also interaction with fellow humans.
