Height test balloons were spotted today behind the Rainforest Cafe at Disney's Animal Kingdom on part of the land that will be home to the upcoming AVATAR land.

There were around 5 balloons, at a height of approximately 3 to 4 stories. The yellow test balloons are commonly used during pre-construction phases to determine how sight lines will be impacted from other areas of the park. 

The balloons are positioned to represent the layout of the building, and its impact on the area is then assessed.
