Disney recently released details on a new canoe ride attraction coming to the yet-to-be-completed Pandora-The World of Avatar, located at Animal Kingdom. 

Details on the attraction were released at the D23 Expo in Japan early Friday, Nov.6. 

From the Disney Park Blog

The adventure begins as guests set out in canoes and venture down a mysterious, sacred river hidden within the bioluminescent rainforest. The full beauty of Pandora reveals itself as the canoes pass by exotic glowing plants and amazing creatures. The journey culminates in an encounter with a Na’vi shaman, who has a deep connection to the life force of Pandora and sends positive energy out into the forest through her music.

Disney plans to open Na’vi River Journey along with Pandora – The World of Avatar sometime in 2017.
