    How crowded are the new avatar rides at park open. I can walk fast but won't run.

    Hello Paul!
    I had the privilege of visiting Pandora - The World of Avatar once during Annual Pass Holder previews in May of 2017 and then multiple times on my Walt Disney World vacation in June of 2017. I can tell you that I was blown away with everything! It truly is beyond belief and you really need to experience it in the day and at night as well. Avatar Flight of Passage is simply amazing and very popular! My best advice for you to get on Avatar Flight of Passage with the least amount of waiting in line without a FastPass+ is to arrive at Disney's Animal Kingdom 30 to 45 minutes before the park is scheduled to open on that particular day and go straight to Pandora-The World of Avatar to the Avatar Flight of Passage attraction. When I was on vacation in June 2017, I got to Disney's Animal Kingdom at 7:30 am (it opened at 8:00 am) and people were being allowed into Pandora-The World of Avatar to queue up for the Avatar Flight of Passage attraction at 7:30 am. I proceeded to get in line and ended up only waiting 35 minutes to get on the Avatar Flight of Passage attraction through the stand-by line. Keep in mind that this was my personal experience and it could tend to vary depending on the day, the time of year, and the crowd levels but doing this incredible attraction first thing in the morning is one of the best strategies that I can recommend to you. Also running to get to an attraction in Walt Disney World theme parks is prohibited but you can walk quickly. After you experience Avatar Flight of Passage then I would recommend riding the Na'vi River Journey attraction.  I hope that you get to experience the thrill of riding on a Banshee in Avatar Flight of Passage and floating on the Na'vi River Journey!
    Keep Dreaming Big!
