Animal Kingdom Update: Pandora Construction (PART 2)

Welcome to the second part of our newest Disney's Animal Kingdom photo-report. Make sure to check out PART 1 before proceeding any further.
In the previous part of this update we enjoyed some views of the great floating mountains that are Beginning to dominate the skyline of the park. In addition to that, we also took a look around Discovery island to see what's new around the central hub of Animal Kingdom. Let's now explore the rest of this amazing park.

Here you are more photos of the new Rivers of Light amphitheater:

More lighting equipment can now be seen in the area:

One of the tech booths is now being themed:

On the other side of the island, the new Tiffins restaurant continues to take shape:

And that is all for now. Before concluding, remember to like us on our official Facebook page and follow us on Twitter for live updates from the parks.

  1. For the amphitheater, is the front portion standing, or did they decide to do half wood bleachers, and half stone bleachers? Can't tell in the photos! Thanks for the photos (as always).

  2. Any chance of soft openings the days after the private viewings?

  3. Great update with wonderful pictures - thanks!

  4. So this means that in 2, 3 years we are going to see it completed!! Yay!!

  5. A big thank you to all of those who commented!

    @First Anonymous: As you stated, half of the amphitheater will have themed seats, while the other half will have regular bleachers. It's almost like they ran out of money halfway through this project! ;-)

    @Jessica: There is a good chance the new show will host soft-openings even before the scheduled previews! Stay tuned, as we will continue to keep you updated.

  6. It could not be down to budget cuts but getting it ready for April. Just look how long it's taken them to get that far with it. If they added the same seating at the back then the project would get pushed back to a late summer opening.

  7. I'd highly doubt that the two types of seating are down to budget or time constraints, this is Disney after all, they have made it abundantly clear that they will spend as much as it needs and are not afraid to take their time with construction.

    Looking at the amphitheatre the themed wall seating is on a steeper gradient than the top bleachers, so perhaps that has something to do with it

  8. I just want to make sure everyone understood that the part where we stated that they might have 'ran out of money" was simply a joke. We truly hope that's not the case!
