Tree of Life Animal Kingdom

Disney insiders visiting  Animal Kingdom on Wednesday, May 24, 2017 for a preview of Pandora – The World of Avatar where treated to a very special Tree of Life Awakenings ceremony paying homage to the bio-luminescent beauty of this stunning new land based on James Cameron’s blockbuster film Avatar.  Here’s a video taken by our own Chip who was lucky enough to attend this event.

One of the elements of this magical awakening that we were the most excited about seeing is the use of drone technology to add that extra little bit of pixie dust to an already wonderful display.

As you may recall, Disney first started using drone technology this past December as part of its collaboration with Intel: Starbright Holidays which took place at Disney Springs in the lead-in to Christmas.  It is wonderful to see Disney continue to work with this technology to create more breathtaking moments like the one captured above.

There is no word yet as to whether this special evening Tree of Life celebration will continue once Pandora officially opens to the public on May 27th but stay tuned and we promise to keep you posted.
