Nighttime in ‘Pandora – The World of Avatar’ glows brilliantly with bioluminescence at Walt Disney World

in Disney, Events, Theme Parks, Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World’s new Pandora – The World of Avatar is meditative and awe-inspiring by day. But after dark, this new area of Disney’s Animal Kingdom truly transforms into a gorgeous, glowing wonderland.

The plant life of Pandora begins to illuminate as the sun sets. It’s a gradual transition, not like switching on a lightbulb. First a few of the fauna illuminate. Then the floating mountains begin to twinkle. And before you know it, daytime is replaced by a bioluminescent forest filled with dazzling eye candy. It’s a photographer’s paradise.

As Walt Disney World debuted the colorful display last night, the weather cooperated perfectly after a threat of rain, instead producing a surreal orange-tinted night sky that perfectly complimented the predominantly blue and purple hues of Pandora. See for yourself in the video and photos below.


Pandora – The World of Avatar officially opens to the public this Saturday, May 27th.
