It is official, Disney has broken ground on AVATAR at Disney's Animal Kingdom. 

Camp Minnie Mickey closed just days ago, and already the site is a sealed off construction zone. Earlier this week leaders from Disney and Lightstorm Entertainment took part in a ceremonial ground breaking. 

“Disney’s Animal Kingdom is already home to some of our guests’ favorite attractions,” said Tom Staggs, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. “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.”

AVATAR is expected to open in 2017.
