Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom has slowly been taking steps to close down Camp Minnie Mickey Themed area as the beginning steps to building Avatar Land. For those of you who have not heard, Mickey and Minnie have already been moved from Camp Minnie Mickey, and guest can now have a meet greet with them at their new location “Adventurers Outpost” in Discovery Island, across from the exit of “It’s Tuff to be a Bug”.

Work is scheduled to begin on Monday March 11, 2013, in the Africa section of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park. The plot of land that was chosen for this project is located behind the Tusker House Restaurant and the DAWA Bar. The Wild Africa Trek check-in location has recently been changed from the DAWA Bar over to the Kilimanjaro Safari Fast Pass distribution area for the same reason.

Guest need not worry as both the restaurant and the bar will continue to operate during this construction project, as no public areas should be affected. This is the first concrete start Disney has taken to pave the way for the new AVATAR Land project.
