The new land in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park is gearing up to finally allow guests inside! As of today guests can start making their FastPass+ reservations for the two attractions in Pandora – The World of Avatar. If you’re only going to be in Animal Kingdom for one day you’ll definitely need to think long and hard about which attraction deserves that precious FastPass! Hit the jump for more details on what to expect when you make your reservations.
Disney is only allowing guests to select on Pandora Attraction per day when making FastPass+ reservations. That means that you have to choose between the Flight of Passage and the Na’Vi River Journey. So, you’ll need to choose which attraction is more important to you. I’m putting my money that the Banshee ride will be the more popular of the two simply because it’s a thrill ride. That doesn’t mean that the River Journey will be walk on. Look at Frozen Ever After. That is a slow moving boat ride similar to River Journey and it had astronomical wait times when it opened to the public. It’s still the most popular attraction at Epcot!
If you’re planning to visit Animal Kingdom for multiple days I’d highly recommend you book both attractions on different days. That way you minimize the amount of time spent in the queue. Disney is also expanding the park hours and offering Extra Magic Evening Hours for “Select Disney Resort” guests. I’m not sure if Disney will actually limit this perk for particular resort guests. If minimizing crowds and wait times is your main priority then I would plan to go to Pandora in the evening and only do the attractions you were able to score a FastPass on. These FastPasses will go quickly, so don’t wait!
