The wait is almost over to experience the all-new Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Walt Disney World resort guests and Annual Passholders will soon get to enjoy the new land very soon!
First off, if you’re an Annual Passholder or Disney Vacation Club member you’re going to want to click here immediately to reserve your spot for a special in-park preview event for your first look at Pandora. Availability is extremely limited so you’re going to want to register as soon as possible. There is no extra charge for this preview but some experiences and attractions may be limited or not operational as it is effectively a soft opening.
Also, guests staying at select Walt Disney World resorts will also be able to now choose Fastpass+ reservations for the two main attractions at Pandora, the breathtaking Avatar Flight of Passage and the family friendly Na’vi River Journey so you can be among the first to experience both of these incredible attractions when it officially opens. Additionally, Extra Magic Hours will also be available for resort guests.
Disney Parks Blog has all the details on what will be offered:
Guests at select Walt Disney World Resort hotels can reserve FastPass+ selections for the two attractions up to 60 days prior to check in, beginning today. For all other guests who have pre-purchased valid park admission, reservations will be available starting 30 days prior to their visit, beginning May 27, 2017. You may select one of these two attractions in your first set of Disney FastPass+ selections, depending on availability.
And beginning May 27 (through July 4), guests staying in select Walt Disney World Resort hotels will have the opportunity to experience Pandora — The World of Avatar with special nighttime Extra Magic Hours. Guests of select Walt Disney World Resort hotels with a valid theme park admission can fly on the back of a banshee, navigate a mystical river and walk under floating mountains beyond regular park hours – from 11 p.m. until 1 a.m. This benefit is in addition to the Extra Magic Hours already available to you at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Pandora – The World of Avatar officially opens at Disney’s Animal Kingdom on May 27, 2017. We’ll see you there!
