navi river journeyThe Na’vi River Journey is one of two new attractions opening May 27 “on” Pandora at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

The family-friendly boat ride takes passengers on a journey “through an alien world beyond their imagination” according to new details released by Disney.

Guests visiting Pandora will come upon a totem that pays homage to the Shaman of Songs, and the totem is the first connection to the Na’vi River Journey.

For the attraction, guests will board reed boats for their journey on the river. One of the first things they encounter is a Na’vi warrior. Then they find themselves surrounded by a bioluminescent rainforest full of exotic animals and plants.

Disney Imagineer Joe Rohde explains the ride like this: “Na’vi River Journey is a very sweet, lyrical adventure through a spectacular visual environment that just becomes more and more spectacular as you go on. The bioluminescent activity of the plants around you unfolds in richer and richer scenes in really just a very uplifting, wonderful kind of journey.”

Near the end of the attraction guests encounter the Shaman of Songs who “sends positive energy into the rainforest.”

The Na’vi River Journey is a 4 and a half minute long ride and FastPass+ is available.
