    I will be visiting Animal Kingdom on 11/13/18. FastPass is no longer available for the rides we were most looking forward to: Flight of Passage, Na'vi River Journey and Kilimanjaro Safari. What would the best time be for standby lines? Thank you.

    Hey there, Bree!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm so excited that your trip is literally right around the corner. You are going to love visiting the Walt Disney World Resort as the festive holiday season begins.

    Like you, I know how it feels when I don't get the FastPass+ selections I hoping for, but fear not as you still will get to experience these amazing attractions. I'm going to give you some advice that worked for us on our last trip when we were unable to get FastPass+ selections for these same attractions.

    The early bird gets the worm, or shall I say "the early bird gets to ride a banshee on Avatar Flight of Passage." By far this is the most popular attraction in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. My advice is to arrive early in the morning to make sure you are one of the first Guests to board this attraction with little wait. This means you should arrive to the park at least 30-60 minutes before opening. I suggest bringing some breakfast to have in line while you wait. Most Guests arriving this early are planning to do the same as you so make sure you are familiar with a park map to know where you are heading when the gates open. Next, you can easily ride Na'vi River Journey which is right around the corner. I suggest then heading over to see the sights on Kilimanjaro Safaris. Once you experience these must-do attractions I would return back to Pandora - The World of Avatar to leisurely take in the amazing details of this land while grabbing a bite to eat at Satu'li Canteen or Pongu Pongu.

    I hope this helps, and don't forget to take your time as you explore the breathtaking lands of this theme park. Your trip is going to be unforgettable!

    Sivako! (this is Na'vi for "Rise to the Challenge")
