There was a groundbreaking ceremony at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom this week for the upcoming AVATAR Land! Giant AVATAR-themed shovels were used in the ceremony, which was held by leaders of the Disney Parks and Lightstorm Entertainment.

Here’s what Tom Staggs, the Chairman Of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts had to say about the new section of the Animal Kingdom park:

Disney’s Animal Kingdom is already home to some of our guests’ favorite attractions. With AVATAR, we are adding a spectacular new world and an exciting set of attractions unlike any our guests have experienced. The expansion now under way will make the park a true full-day, must-see experience.
