Disney is describing the new Avatar section of the Animal Kingdom as “awe-inspiring floating mountains and wander through a nighttime jungle of bioluminescent plants that are alive with light and sound. Guests will also discover what it feels like to soar into the sky riding a Banshee.”

The Avatar expansion is not the only thing that has been announced, a new nighttime show (pictured above) is also coming to Animal Kingdom as well.  A new show featuring live music, floating lanterns, water screens and swirling animal imagery will illuminate Animal Kingdom at night like never before.  There will also be a new nighttime version of Kilimanjaro Safaris for guests to encounter as well.

The new Avatar expansion is scheduled to open in 2017.
