Avatar Flight of Passage will “offer guests the jaw-dropping experience of exploring the world of Pandora atop a Banshee.”

The family-friendly Na’Vi River Journey boat ride that will take riders through a bioluminescent rainforest, ending with an “unforgettable encounter” with a Na’vi Shaman, a character with a “deep connection to the life force of Pandora.”
