    For Animal Kingdom's extra magic hours, will the Avatar attractions be open?

    Hi Shannon,

    Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park does offer Extra Magic Hours benefits to Guests staying at Disney Resort hotels, Walt Disney World Swan Hotel, Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel and Shades of Green® Resort—plus Disney Golden Oak Residents or Guests of Disney Golden Oak Residents. This exclusive Resort benefit is offered for both morning and evening Extra Magic Hours. So, you will be able to explore the wondrous new world day and night!

    The Avatar Flight of Passage and the Na'vi River Journey attractions are both open during Extra Magic Hours. If you haven't already experienced Avatar Flight of Passage, you are in for the most AMAZING ride of your life! You will undertake an incredible Na'vi rite of passage called Iknimaya. This means you will be flying on the back of a powerful animal called an Ikran; which is more commonly known to us humans as a Banshee. So, be sure to rise to the challenge! Or as the Na'vi would say: "Sivako!"

    Do spend some time appreciating the incredibly astonishing Valley of Mo'ara, with its floating mountains, cascading waterfalls and bioluminescent fauna and flora. It's a stunning sight to behold! In fact, one doesn't even have to ride the newest attractions to truly appreciate the impressive new land – which must be experienced both day and at night!

    I hope you found this information useful, Shannon. Please visit us again with more Disney vacation planning questions. We will help you discover the true Power of Magic!
