    hello all.would someone please explain the fastpass system to me.i have gone on to disney 3 days in a row at 6am,and always the fastpass for avatar are already gone.i don't understand how they can all be gone for the selected day in june so early.????

    Hi Scott,

    Avatar Flight of Passage at Disney's Animal Kingdom is unlike any other attraction I've EVER experienced. Wow! With breathtaking sights and a thrilling adventure, you really feel like you're in another world! 

    I'm sorry you've had trouble finding FastPass+ availability for this attraction. It could simply be because it is SO popular that all of the FastPass+ times are truly unavailable. I bet you're wondering how they could be gone if you're logging in first thing in the morning, right? Well, Guests who are staying at a Disney Resort hotel have the added benefit of making FastPass+ selections for the entire length of their stay 60 days in advance, and yet even still, they may not find availability for a super popular attraction on the first few days of their vacation since Guests checking in a few days prior may have already reserved all of the FastPass+ times. That could be why, when you're logging in 30 days before your vacation, you aren't finding any more available times. The other issue could be the time of day you're logging in. When your window opens to begin making FastPass+ selections, you won't be able to begin choosing them until 7:00 a.m. Eastern time.

    The good news for you is that even if you are not able to obtain a FastPass+ return time to experience Avatar Flight of Passage, you may still wait in a standby line. Even if it's long, it's so worth it! For the shortest wait time, I'd encourage you to hop in line right before the park closes or arrive at Disney's Animal Kingdom an hour before it opens and follow the Cast Members' directions for where to go.

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Scott! As the Na'vi say, "Sivako!" Enjoy your flight, and have a truly magical vacation!
