    Desiree from GA Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    1st day will be AK and you know 1st ride will be FOP. Should we drive straight to AK or check in to Riviera and take Disney transpo - pre rope drop arrival dreams - TY

    Desiree, a warm welcome from me to planDisney! I always love to hear fellow Guests get as excited as me for rope-drop at Walt Disney World. Avatar Flight of Passage is one of my all-time favorite things to do. Like, in the World, not just Walt Disney World. 

    So let's help you get the most out of your early morning, Desiree. The first step I urge you to take now is to link your Disney Resort hotel booking in your My Disney Experience App. Once you have set this up, you can use Online Check-In from wherever you choose, even Disney's Animal Kingdom parking lot. You can start the fun of your vacation even sooner and, if you would like, bypass the front desk.

    As a Disney Resort hotel Guest, you will have Early Theme Park Entry to all the parks 30 minutes ahead of other Guests. This is the time to be in Disney's Animal Kingdom, making a beeline for Avatar Flight of Passage! Our family likes to head straight there, and as if the ride wasn't reward enough for our early start, we treat ourselves to the delicious French Toast Sticks from Pongu Pongu right after. It's located just where you come out of the ride and has become one of our favorite family traditions. 

    Once you have finished up a truly magical morning, you may like to head to Disney's Riviera Resort to see your room and check out the pools. I highly recommend returning to Pandora – The World of Avatar after dusk. The spectacle becomes truly breathtaking at night. 

    I am so excited for you and your fellow Guests, Desiree. Your upcoming trip will be magical! It has been such a pleasure answering your question today, and I'd love to help with anything else you need ahead of your Walt Disney World Vacation. Louise
