    There are am & pm EMH the day we visit AK. Suggestions for early activities (2 adults/ 2 kids (9&7)? We have fp for K Safari, Expedition Everest, & Na'vi River Journey. Also, we've never seen Avatar should we see it before coming?

    Kxalti, Miranda! You’re in for a world of fun at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and you are smart to make use of the those Extra Magic Hours. There are several things you can do to fill up your morning! Making a FastPass+ reservation for a morning safari at Kilimanjaro is the best thing you could have done. Jumping on an early safari vehicle usually results in an animal-filled adventure since everyone is active and wandering around before it gets hot. Alternatively, going on a “night safari” means that the Lions may be more active in the dark hours, though you may see very little of the other animals as they bed down. Expedition Everest and the Na’vi River Journey are popular rides, so snagging FP+ for them was a wise choice!  You could also fill your morning stopping off at the various animal exhibits nestled into the park, such as the parrots near the entrance (before you hit Discovery Island) or the Chimpanzees and Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail. These little exhibits offer lots to see and they animals are always ready to go in the mornings! You may be able to pick up a Times Guide as you enter, or check the My Disney Experience app for “Entertainment” times. Harambe dances and street shows are enchanting!

    I don’t think you NEED to watch Avatar before your visit, as Pandora is an alien world waiting to be explored for the first time. You’ll get plenty of pre-attraction information and atmosphere from the Avatar: Flight of Passage queue and videos, and the land really does stand on it’s own. However, if you have a long journey to Walt Disney World Resort ahead of you, a downloaded movie can go a long way to explain the nuances of the land! I’d love to chat more about your upcoming vacation, so please return to ask me another question! ~Lindsey P.
