    Our family plans to do AK in June. We are not staying in a Disney hotel so will not get to do EMH. The park is going to open an hour early and we weren't able to get FP for FOP. Any tips for the shortest time in line? Is night time the best?

    Hi Melissa,

    With only a few weeks to go before your vacation to the most magical place on earth, are you in full-on countdown mode? So exciting! Pandora - The World of Avatar at Disney's Animal Kingdom is truly spectacular, and you are going to LOVE it! I'd definitely encourage you to visit it both during the day and again at night when the entire land comes to life with the magic of bioluminescence. Be sure to pay attention to all of the sights, sounds, and even smells and enjoy feeling like you've been transported to another world.

    A FastPass+ for Avatar Flight of Passage sure is a hot "ticket" to have! If you haven't been able to find a FastPass+ time available, my first tip would be to keep trying. People change their plans all the time, and you never know when some will become available. Even once you arrive, keep refreshing the My Disney Experience app and searching for a FastPass+ time to pop up. However, even if you aren't able to use the FastPass+ service, the standby line is so worth it. Since you aren't able to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours or park opening, I think you're right that the best time to experience this attraction without a long wait will likely be at the end of the day. As long as you're in line before the theme park closes, you'll be able to bond with a banshee and enjoy a breathtaking flight!

    Sending pixie dust that you'll be able to experience this AMAZING attraction without a long wait, and that you have a truly magical vacation! If we can answer any other questions for you, Melissa, please let us know as we're always happy to help! Oh, and one more thing...Sivako!
