    Bioreconstruct posted this photo yesterday. That is one tall structure!

    Another great update from Walt Disney World News Today as one of their reporters headed to the park yesterday to check out construction progress. Not too many photos of Pandora but the speed of construction does seem to be picking up now the major supports are in place.

    I haven't had the chance to see this first hand yet but the scale of the construction is really starting to show in these photos and it looks massive! I think now we can see people walking about on them and the cranes loading materials it's easy to see this is going to be a real showstopper when it opens.

    A cool new video from Mako Madness posted on YouTube a couple of days ago showing the Avatar Land construction. You can actually see construction workers on the floating mountains and that gives a much better scale to the size of the building works! Cool to see people moving around on them and some actual construction taking place.

    Excellent flyover on YouTube from Mr Brian in Orlando. Amazingly close up view of the work on Pandora. This is a little older than some of the photos we have seen recently but it's good to get a context as to it's location in relation to the rest of Animal Kingdom.

    The official lines are still "2017" and given that James Cameron has delayed the sequel until November 2017 it doesn't seem likely to open any earlier than planned.



    Adding image and link as this site has great coverage of the concept art and models for reference.

  10. Do we have a confirmed opening date?
