    Hello, I’ve just missed out on booking Fastpass tickets for Avatar on the 11th April, is there any benefit to getting to Avatar as soon as the park opens? i.e. Is there a general admin queue as well as the fastpass? Thanks.

    Hi Jeremy!

    Pandora - The World of Avatar in Disney's Animal Kingdom is an incredible and immersive world that you definitely don't want to miss!  If you are unable to get FastPass+ reservations for the day you are visiting, keep checking back.  Sometimes, you are able to grab a FastPass+ selection that someone else has dropped.  I was able to pick up a FastPass+ selection about a week before our last vacation for Na'vi River Journey!  Make sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app so you can check it out on the go!

    If you are unable to get FastPass+ reservations for Avatar Flight of Passage and Na'vi River Journey, I would highly suggest arriving at the park before it opens so you will be in the front of the general queue (which is separate from the FastPass+ queue).  Although we were able to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours on our last trip, we arrived about an hour before the park opened for Extra Magic Hours.  I highly suggest doing the same for a regular park opening.  We were close to the beginning of the line to enter the park, and therefore we were able to get on Flight of Passage without any wait!  We then were able to ride Na'vi River Journey with very little wait immediately after Avatar Flight of Passage.

    Although waking up really early in the morning may not seem like a fun idea, especially on vacation, it really does help you make the most of your time in the park and minimize your wait time for the attractions!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
