FIRST LOOK at a Possible ‘Avatar’ EXPANSION in Disneyland

Plans are in the works for expansions at the Disneyland Resort, and that could potentially include a new Avatar-themed land!

Pandora: World of Avatar

During the initial reveal, Iger shared, “We have one Avatar-based land, Pandora, in Florida. We’re going to put a second one in California.” A land similar to what was created in Disney’s Animal Kingdom park in Disney World could make its way to California — and we’ve officially got our first idea of what it could look like!

During the Walt Disney Company Annual Shareholders Meeting on April 3rd, 2024, Disney dropped quite a bit of news on us. Not only did we get a new trailer for Inside Out 2 and a look at the upcoming Moana sequel, but we also got a FIRST LOOK at concept art for a potential Avatar-themed land that could come to Disneyland in the future!

We don’t know about you, but that looks pretty incredible to us. Of course, this is just a “Blue Sky” idea for now, meaning that while Disney has the idea that an Avatar land could work here, no plans have officially been announced — yet.

The DisneylandForward project is currently on its way to the desks of the Anaheim City Council, where they will vote on whether or not to approve it.

A key point of the proposal is that it requests permission for Disney to build more thematic elements, including as many as four structures that measure up to 300 feet tall. “The general intent is to establish a building height hierarchy in which most theme park elements will range from 40 to 250 feet high, with up to four structural thematic elements/icons that may be up to 300 feet in height to establish visual interest and orientation within the theme park,” says the draft document. That could mean new floating islands like in Pandora!

For now, nothing is official — but we’ll keep an eye out for any announcements! Stay tuned to DFB as we continue to bring you more updates on a potential Avatar expansion in Disneyland and the latest news from the shareholders meeting!
