io9 has the word that Cameron and Disney's shared theme park attraction Pandora: The World of Avatar is set to open next year just in time for the pre-hype for the movie's sequel.The attraction will essentially be a park within a park within a park as it will take up a chunk of the Animal Kingdom part of DisneyWorld in Florida.

While details are scarce outside of some early concept art, the attraction will get a full rollout at the D23 Destination D: Amazing Adventures event, set for Nov. 19 and 20 at Walt Disney World Resort.
