    If we arrive at 8:30 (9:00 AK opening) would we have time to do Flights of Passage and Navi River and make it to Tusker House for 9:40 ADR?

    Hi Jennifer,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.  It’s exciting to hear you are planning to visit Disney's Animal Kingdom and explore Pandora – The World of Avatar.

    Let me start by saying each of these attractions is so immersive and visually stunning.  Avatar Flight of Passage is without question one of the most amazing experiences I’ve enjoyed. It takes my breath away each time I climb on the back of a mountain banshee. With each of these new and popular attractions, in my experience, you could possibly see standby line wait times that exceed the amount of time you have available before your dining reservation.

    My best tip, having explored Pandora twice on separate trips in recent months, is to make FastPass+ reservations and to use the My Disney Experience mobile app to get a sense of standby line wait times as you are arriving at the park. If you’re staying at a select hotel, take advantage of Extra Magic Hours and arrive as early as possible.

    You might try and take in one attraction before your dining reservation and another after you have finished. I think you’ll also find that simply wandering through the Valley of Mo'ara before you head off to Tusker House is a beautiful way to begin your day.

    Enjoy your expedition!
