    Dear Cecilia,

    Thank you so much for reaching out to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question about Pandora - The World of Avatar!

    I am so excited for you to experience the attractions and the ambiance of Pandora - The World of Avatar. It is truly an immersive experience unlike any other at the Walt Disney World Resort. At this time, we haven't heard if there will be additional Extra Magic Hours nightly similar to what was offered this summer when the land was brand new. Even if there are no specific additional Extra Magic Hours, but there will definitely be a selection of rotating Extra Magic Hours for the four theme parks, including Disney's Animal Kingdom. I think that taking advantage of that perk that is only offered to guests of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels is a great way to get a lot of time in a given park before a larger crowd of guests arrives. 

    Just last week, my family and I arrived early for Extra Magic Hours and we were able to ride Avatar Flight of Passage before the line even began to build for the day. 

    Hope that helps you to begin your magical planning!

    - Jan K.
