    Hi! Visiting in July 2020 and our 60 day window for fast passes has recently opened up. I was able to book Na’vi River but not Avatar. Since I already booked Na’vi, am I able to view Avatar fast pass choices if one opens up and change to that instead?

    Hi there, Deidra! 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Three chEARs for planning your magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort! You must be so excited about your upcoming arrival to The Most Magical Place on Earth and I’m so glad to hEAR you’ve already made your FastPass+ selections. By utilizing the Disney FastPass+ service, you will spend less time waiting and more time having fun! 

    To say I am utterly obsessed with Avatar Flight of Passage at Disney’s Animal Kingdom would be an understatement. The exhilarating flight on the back of the banshee feels so realistic, you can even feel the banshee breathing! While you’re on your magical flight, take in the stunning landscape of Pandora, as well as the exquisite aroma of the Pandora forest. If I’m going to be honest, I cried the first few times I experienced the attraction because I was in absolute awe. Since both Avatar Flight of Passage and Na’vi River Journey fall under Tier I attractions, you will need to select the Na’vi River Journey FastPass+ selection to modify it in your My Disney Experience app. If Avatar Flight of Passage is available, it will show you there, and don’t worry Deidra, you won’t lose your existing selection unless you confirm the modification. Be sure to keep trying, because people end up cancelling their FastPass+ selections for one reason or another, allowing others to snag them!

    If by any chance you are unable to acquire the highly sought-after Avatar Flight of Passage FastPasses, don’t be discouraged. If you’re staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel which allows you the wonderful amenity of Extra Magic Hours, take advantage of the extra time being offered. I also like to get to the Park bright and early because it’s less crowded and you can get rides done fairly quickly as opposed to later in the afternoon. 

    Deidra, I wish you the best on your journey to acquiring the most magical FastPasses. As they say in Na’vi, Sivako! --Rise to the Challenge!
