Pandora the World of Avatar Excitement

Have you dreamed about climbing on the back of a banshee? Or maybe floating down a luminescent river? Good news, Avatar fans! Your dreams become a reality with the opening of Animal Kingdom’s new land, Pandora the World of Avatar on May 27, 2017.

Here’s how Disney describes the experience: “Floating mountains grace the skyline while exotic plants fill the colorful landscape inside Pandora – The World of Avatar, which opens May 27, 2017, at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Pandora – The World of Avatar will bring a variety of new experiences to the park, including a family-friendly attraction called Na’vi River Journey and new food & beverage and merchandise locations.”

Book Pandora FastPasses March 24, 2017

FastPass+ choices can be made starting March 24, 2017 for visits 60 days out for visitors staying on site at Walt Disney Resort hotels.

Disney’s FastPass+ service will be available at the two attractions within Pandora during regular hours.

Sounds great, right? Well, there is a hitch.

You may select only one of these two attractions in the first set of Disney FastPass+ selections. That’s right; it looks like Disney’s Animal Kingdom will enter the tiered FastPass+ system with the addition of these attractions.
