    My sister and I are planning another trip to WDW for the 23rd of April. We're currently 0-2 trying to get fast passes for the new Avatar attractions. Thinking about staying on property this time to get advanced FP, are their currently any available?

    Hi Trevor,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Planning an expedition to Pandora - let the adventure begin!

    Although I cannot confirm Fast Pass+ availability, I can say that historically, Fast Pass+ selections for Avatar Flight of Passage have been gone as soon as our 60 day selection window opens. We have been fortunate to be able to make them, but they have not been available for long. On one occasion last year, we were able to make Fast Pass+ selections for Avatar Flight of Passage after initially not seeing any availability. So there is some hope!

    As you have indicated, being able to make Fast Pass+ selections 60 days in advance is a benefit of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. It is absolutely one of the reasons we always stay at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel! In the past, I have also used Extra Magic Hours to experience both Avatar Flight of Passage and Na'vi River Journey. When I checked the Park Hours for Disney's Animal Kingdom on the date of your visit, Disney's Animal Kingdom had early morning Extra Magic Hours scheduled for 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. Since these attractions are so incredibly popular, there will be lines even during Extra Magic Hours, so I suggest that you still arrive at least an hour before park opening. 

    Trevor, remember that Extra Magic Hours are one of the benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. So, I still advise that you make that resort reservation.

    As we say on Pandora, Sivako! Rise to the Challenge!
