Keeping Pandora – The World of Avatar Open for Some Super Special Central Floridians

Wow. It was so amazing to celebrate the opening of Pandora – The World of Avatar. For me, there was one special moment that I will always remember.

On Friday night, we invited some of our most important neighbors – 1,500 members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida – for a special sneak peek of Pandora before it officially opened May 27.

I loved seeing the wonder in their eyes as they looked up to see the marvel of the floating mountains. I laughed and screamed with them as they soared through the skies on the back of a banshee.

And I wanted to sing along with them as they floated through a bioluminescent rainforest filled with glowing exotic plants on the way to a stirring encounter with the Na’vi Shaman of Song.

Most of all, I watched as students transformed into adventurers – ready to embark into a world beyond belief as they enjoyed the epic new land of Pandora.
