    Are the Magic Hours at AK on Memorial Day wknd just for Pandora, or all of AK Park?

    Hi Lindsey!

    I am so excited to answer a question about the new Pandora-World of Avatar area of the Animal Kingdom Theme Park. It is set to open to the public on May 27 and I think the guests will be blown away from this new area!

    Memorial Day Weekend will be a huge one for this park. With the opening of Pandora you can expect some larger crowds and the entire park will have the Extra Magic Hours. There might be some attractions or shows which cannot operate after dark such as the bird show but for the most part you can grab a FastPass today for many of the popular rides. Definitely try to use your Tier One attraction FastPass for one of the Pandora rides. The Flight of Passage is what they will consider their premiere ride and it is indeed awesome. It is not a roller coaster but it is a 3D ride and beyond that I don't want to spoil the fun of experiencing it for the first time yourself. The River ride is a wonderful family ride for all ages.

    Consider having lunch or dinner or even breakfast at the new Satu'li Canteen restaurant in the Pandora land. It is a Quick Service location but the food is incredible. Consider ordering the cheeseburger pod and blueberry cheesecake and I assure that you will walk away very happy. And bring your wallet to shop at the new Wind Trader store. They will be offering some amazing new Disney souvenirs and check out the adoption of a Banshee for your family!
