    What is a reasonable time to arrive at Animal Kingdom to get ahead of the crowds on a day where they offer Extra Magic Hours for the morning? We were unable to secure a FastPass+ for Flight of Passage, but did get one for Na'vi River Journey at 9:15.

    Hiya Stephanie!

    Thank you so much for stopping by!  What a fantastic question!  Pandora-The World of Avatar is a very popular destination for guests visiting Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. There are a few different strategies, but the one that I've found the works the most consistently is 'the early bird gets the worm.'  If Extra Magic Hours begin at 8:00 AM, I would plan for an arrive no later than 7:30 AM, then head directly to Avatar Flight of Passage.  Hopefully that'll set you up well for the remainder of the day!

    Have a magical vacation!
