Back in May, we reported on Guests frustrated that one of Walt Disney World Resort’s newest attractions is seemingly being neglected. Guests reported months of double vision on the 3D ride, even when wearing provided 3D glasses, which some suggested was due to projectors shifting out of alignment over time. Some Guests even got sick from the blurry screens.
Some Walt Disney World Resort fans took to Twitter to ask an iconic Disney Imagineer, Joe Rohde, what was going on with the 3D simulation ride. Rohde not only helped envision Pandora: The World of Avatar but the entirety of Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
Rohde told fans that there are four rooms on the ride, explaining why some fans might notice the technical issue while others don’t. He also said he hasn’t been on or working on the ride since 2019, as he’s retired and now lives in California, so he can’t say what the exact issue is:
There are 4 rooms. But I have no idea technically what the issue might be as I have not been there since 2019
