    i thought we would go to animal kingdom in the morning for half day and have a magic hour to go to avatar. It turns out now that there is no magic hour on the days we are there. there are no fast passes left. Are any released at the kiosk on the day?

    Hi Samantha! It's exciting to see you will be at Walt Disney World Resort in a few short days!

    Avatar Flight of Passage is truly exhilarating. I love how thorough you are being with your planning to include it in your itinerary. Because plans could change for other Guests, I would definitely recommend you continue checking for FastPass+ availability from now until the day of your arrival. If possible, try to check at different times throughout the day.

    Even without Extra Magic Hours, if you arrive at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park at park opening and proceed immediately to Avatar Flight of Passage, you will have a shorter wait time. I can't think of a better way to start my day than on the back of a mountain banshee!

    You can also continue checking for availability throughout the day of your visit on your My Disney Experience mobile app or at the FastPass+ Kiosks.

    One other option (if it works with your schedule and you have the Park Hopper option on your theme park ticket) is to visit Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park on a morning when Extra Magic Hours are available. As soon as the theme park opens, go directly to Avatar Flight of Passage. When your adventure concludes, you can make your way to another theme park and continue with your plans.

    Thanks for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Enjoy every magical moment of your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
