Attraction Reaction: Avatar Flight of Passage

Avatar Flight of Passage

Avatar Flight of Passage is the new headliner attraction at Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  On this 3D screen- and motion-based ride, you are connected to your own avatar and fly on the back of a mountain banshee through the diverse environments of Pandora.

Attraction Reaction: Na’vi River Journey

Na’vi River Journey – Pandora – The World of Avatar

The Na’vi River Journey is a visually stunning, slow-moving boat ride through a bioluminescent rainforest.  It is located in Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s newest section, Pandora – The World of Avatar.

FastPass+ is available for this ride, and there are no height restrictions, so your entire family can ride together.

Each boat only has two rows that can each fit three people (though you can also squeeze in two adults and two small children in a single row).

Landscape of Pandora: The World of Avatar

Floating mountains – Pandora – The World of Avatar

When you cross the bridge into Walt Disney World’s newest land Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, you are instantly transported to another world.

Pandora is home to two attractions, Avatar Flight of Passage and the Nav’i River Journey, but the detailed and immersive landscape is a headliner itself.

The Valley of Mo’ara is filled floating mountains and native Pandoran flora, and it becomes filled with bioluminescence at night.

Make sure you take time to wander through Pandora’s trails to take in the cultural touches, the sounds of Pandora’s creatures, and the truly stunning landscape.
