Something new is coming to Pandora at Disney's Animal Kingdom! The Pandora Conservation Initiative (PCI) has engineered a 10-foot-tall Exo-Carrier, a "Pandora Utility Suit," used to study the wildlife, collect plant samples, and survive Pandora's terrain. The design of the exo-carrier suit is inspired by the Amplified Mobility Platform (AMP) suits of power armor from the "AVATAR" movie. You will be able to interact with its pilot, who is strapped into the cockpit of the exo-carrier and controls its powerful movements. Check the Times Guide or the My Disney Experience App the day of your visit for the latest information.
