Planning for World of Avatar at Walt Disney World in Animal Kingdom

Planning for World of Avatar

We are eagerly awaiting the opening of Pandora- World of Avatar next month.  Have you been living in a cave?  Avatar is a James Cameron movie and Walt Disney World is creating a land dedicated to it in Animal Kingdom.

Curious about what to expect? Check out the sneak peek.

The land opens on May 27th, so many people are now within their Fastpass+ snagging window.  We have been eagerly planning for World of Avatar. I was able to get Na’ vi River Journey on the first day of our vacation.

You can not choose both on the same day.  On a later day, I was able to choose Avatar Flight of Passage. But, sniffle.  I will have to stagger my trips to be able to ride both big ticket rides.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom will be staying open beyond it’s usual close time of 8pm until 11pm from May 27 to July 4, 2017.  That should give fun-seekers plenty of time to explore the new attractions.   However, I was ecstatic to see a mailer come regarding our upcoming trip.

“As a guest of a select Walt Disney World resort hotel, you may explore Pandora- the World of Avatar beyond regular park hours.”

What: Nightly Extra Magic Hours

Where:  Only in Pandora- The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park

When: 11pm-1am nightly May 27 to July 4, 2017

Who: Exclusively for Guests of select Walt Disney World Resort hotels

How: Valid theme park admission and resort ID required

Why: These very special evening hours will give you and your family the best opportunity to enjoy everything Pandora- The World of Avatar has to offer.

What else is exciting?  The mailer touts that you can have extra time to “fly on the back of a banshee, navigate a magical river, and walk under floating mountains.”

Are you planning for World of Avatar?  We will be there shortly after opening and I plan to post about it on all my social media sites: make sure to subscribe to the blog.
