Handle the Crowds Like a Pro
& Experience All Pandora Offers!
Whether you loved the movie, hated it or have no clue what it’s even about, Pandora: The World of Avatar is a “must experience” land. All Disney guests should be sure to visit it during their vacation. The breathtaking scenery, attractions, food and merchandise are bringing in guests by the millions, which means you better go with a plan! After attending the grand opening of this new land in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, here are some tips to be able to experience all it has to offer.
Plan on going during the Extra Magic Morning Hours at Animal Kingdom. Since the hours are for resort-guests only, you will have the least crowded hour in the park before it opens to all guests. This will be one of your best times to visit the World of Avatar. If you are taking Disney transportation, plan on being on the very first bus, which departs the resort 45 minutes prior to park opening.
Reserve your Fastpasses 60 days out from your check in date if you are staying at a Disney Resort Hotel. Since there are two options for Fastpasses in this land and you can only pick one to Fastpass, I recommend Avatar Flight of Passage. This ride has had wait times up to five hours since opening, so having a Fastpass for this attraction is like having a golden ticket. If you have a morning Fastpass reserved for this ride, go ahead and get in the standby line for the Na’vi River Journey. If you are there for the Extra Magic Hours, you will not wait in this line for more than 20 minutes.
Explore! Once you have ridden the two attraction in this land, take the time to explore and take photos. Never have I ever felt a part of a movie like I have here. Every detail is carefully crafted and more than worth exploring.
Find the Photopass Photographers! The photo opportunities in this land are countless and one is more amazing than the next. You can get a standard shot of your family with the floating mountains in the background and you can even get magic shots featuring flying Banshees and other characters native to this land. Use your My Disney Experience app to locate photographers and make sure you purchase Memory Maker so you can download all of your photos.
Head over to the Situ’li Canteen to get some much-needed sustenance after a busy morning exploring this other world. With create-your-own rice bowls and other healthy alternatives, the Situ’li Canteen is a great place to take a break and have a meal or a snack before heading back to Earth. You can read more about the Canteen, HERE! The World of Avatar has several tasty places you can try, but we love Situ’li!
