For those seeking thrills and experiences:

 

Avatar: Flight of Passage

 

Check out this trilling expedition right in the middle of the Valley of Mo’ara.  Hop aboard and experience a banshee’s eye view of a world beyond belief. After bonding with your banshee, you will then fly, soar and dive through passages, under the floating mountains and over the rushing rivers that make up this land.

Na’vi River Journey

 

For a more relaxed expedition, hop aboard a reed boat as you float down the mysterious Pandoran River.  Along the way you will be immersed in the landscape of the glowing rainforest canopy, discovering plants and exotic creatures along your search for the Na’vi Shaman of Songs.

There is more to Pandora than just expeditions!  All around the floating mountains of this faraway moon, you will discover a world like no other. Shopping and dining at Pandora is one of a kind experience.  You can discover exotic pets that come to life each night through bioluminescense.  You can get immersed in the culture of the Na’vi through totems and other items found in the land.  Pandora will also feature new badges for those Wilderness Explorers.

 

Looking for something different to delight your sense of taste:

 

The Satu’li Canteen

 This was once the main mess hall of the Resources Development Administration located in Mo’ara. The interior has been transformed with colorful Na’vi items filling the walls and hanging from the ceiling. Now, the canteen is owned and operated by Alpha Centauri Expeditions tour company and has been transformed into a beautiful dining room with museum style touches. Dishes start with a quinoa and vegetable salad, mixed whole grain and rice, red and sweet potato hash or a romaine and kale salad as the base. Next you will get the choice of either wood-grilled chicken, fish, chili spiced fried tofu or slow-roasted beef. Top it off with either a creamy herb dressing, charred onion chimichurri to a black bean vinaigrette. You can also select from a menu of "pods" which items such as vegetable curry or even a cheeseburger with root vegetable chips and veggie slaw.
