    Animal Kingdom has added the Avatar section since our last visit and I am looking for suggestions on Fast Pass planning and also if the Avatar ride is intense for someone with motion sickness.

    Hi, there!

     Julie, you are in for a treat. Pandora - The World of Avatar is breathtaking! I recently made my first trek to the Valley of Mo'ara and I am happy to answer your questions.

     Pandora - The World of Avatar boasts two incredible attractions. Na'vi River Journey is a peaceful boat ride through a bioluminescent rainforest. The sights and sounds of this expedition are beautiful! Avatar Flight of Passage is one of Walt Disney World Resort's most popular attractions. This thrill ride transports Guests high above Pandora atop a mountain banshee. 

     Guests of Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park may choose only one of these new attractions for a FastPass+ experience when booking their initial three FastPass+ selections for the day. I suggest planning on arriving to Pandora - The World of Avatar when the park opens in the morning. Head first for Na'vi River Journey and enter the standby queue. Then, ride Avatar Flight of Passage with a FastPass+. This plan should minimize your wait times and maximize your time exploring the Valley of Mo'ara!

     Julie, Avatar Flight of Passage is considered a "thrill ride." For safety, Guests are encouraged to be free of health issues, including motion sickness, before embarking on such an adventure. I personally suffer from moderate to severe motion sickness and, unfortunately, opted out of experiencing Avatar Flight of Passage first-hand during my last visit. 

     Thanks for stopping by!
