    Can I ride (I mean occupying the same seat) the Avatar Flight of Passage with my son, who meets the height requirement but may be scared to ride by himself?

    Hi Stephanie!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation will be filled with fun and excitement! You're asking about my favorite attraction! Avatar Flight of Passage is absolutely amazing. Having the opportunity to ride a banshee through Pandora is something I recommend everyone do while visiting Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park!

    Unfortunately, you won't be able to ride along with your son on his banshee during Avatar Flight of Passage. Each person will get his or her very own mountain banshee for this unforgettable journey. You will be right next to your son, though! You can easily check on him throughout the experience to make sure he is comfortable and having fun. When I rode Avatar Flight of Passage for the first time, I vividly remember turning to the person I was on vacation with and yelling, "This is incredible!!!" Now that I think of it, I believe I excitedly yelled out to the stranger riding on the other side of me, too! Haha! Also, I do want to mention that there is a "test seat" your son can sit in outside of the attraction! I recommend taking a moment for him to sit in it so he can familiarize himself with how it will feel once he's on the attraction. If he's riding his banshee and gets a little scared, he can always close his eyes for a while until he's ready to open them!

    Stephanie, I am wishing both you and your son an unforgettable journey through Pandora! Please come back and visit us again with more great questions!
