    Is it possible to get fast passes for Navi River and Avatar (if I can..seems all booked even 60 days out!) or are you only allowed one of those in the Pandora section of the park? Should i delete the Navi river in the hopes of getting an Avatar?

    Kaltxì, Suzanne! Since its opening in 2017, Avatar Flight of Passage has been a family favorite of ours, and as soon as my FastPass+ booking window opens, I make this attraction my first priority. Sometimes, if the pixie dust is with me that day, I get it; but there are times when I am unable to, even at 7:00 AM EST 60 days out. I'd be happy to share my advice on how to ensure you get the ultimate banshee experience!

    Both of Pandora's attractions, Avatar Flight of Passage and Na'vi River Journey, are eligible for FastPass+. However, because of the popularity of these rides, there are both considered Tier 1 attractions, which means that guests can only make an advance reservation for ONE of these two attractions per day. Then, you can make FastPass+ reservations for two other rides or entertainment options in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park's Tier 2 category. For Tier 1, my recommendation is to select Avatar Flight of Passage, as waits for this attraction can often exceed 90 minutes. If you still wish to ride Na' vi River Journey, get to the park for "rope drop," which is Disney lingo for park opening, and plan to use the standby queue. For your Tier 2 FastPass+ selections, I suggest Kilimanjaro Safaris, Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain, or Festival of the Lion King.

    If there's no Avatar Flight of Passage FastPass+ availability, keep checking back in your My Disney Experience account every couple of days. I'm pretty persistent, and I've even lucked out once and was able to nab them the day before we visited. Another suggestion is to wait until later in the evening to ride as the park begins clearing out after Rivers of Light's second showing. Wait times are usually lower during this time, and then you'll get to see all the beautiful details in the standby queue that the FastPass+ line skips over.

    See ya' real soon, Suzanne- or as the Na'vi like to say, kìyevame!
