    Default Pandora Opening Date No Longer a Rumor! Opens 05/27

    WDWMagic.com thinks it might have uncovered a clue as to when Pandora - The Land of Avatar might open at Disney's Animal Kingdom Park. Disney has previously announced that Pandora will open in the Summer 2017 but has not set a specific date, but WDWMagic thinks it might open between May 27 and June 9, 2017.

    Disney just announced a new 3- and 4-day ticket offer for Florida residents. WDWMagic noticed the tickets have just one blockout period -- May 27 to June 9 -- and its only for Animal Kingdom Park.

    Why would the ticket offer block out that time period and then only for Animal Kingdom Park? Is it because its the opening weekend for Pandora?

    Edit: Link to opening announcement is on Post 4.

    I am so happy it'll be open for my trip I wasn't the biggest fan of the movie, but I'm looking forward to the immersive theming.

    Default Height requirement

    Has the height requirement for the attractions been released? I know the one is for families, so it probably has none. What about the other one? Taking a kid this summer and don't want to get her excited about something she can't ride.

    I have not seen anything about this height restrictions for Pandora's attractions.

    I would expect the family boat ride will be for all ages, but it will be a dark ride. We had a niece that until she was 10 still wouldn't do dark rides even Pirates of the Caribbean out of fear. She was always a very brave kid so it always took be by surprise when she refused to even try them.

    As to the other attraction, it will be a simulator ride, so I expect it will have height restrictions like Star Tours, 40 inches, but it could be higher.
