Pandora – World of Avatar is now part of Disney World’s Animal Kingdom. The land brings guests 2 new rides, and 2 new restaurants. Below are 5 must know tips before traveling to Pandora – World of Avatar.
1. Choose a Fastpass+ Selection
Guests may choose to either make a Fastpass+ selection for Avatar Flight of Passage or Na’vi River Journey. Riding a back of a banshee, on Avatar Flight of Passage, is one of Disney’s most immersive experiences to date. This attraction has an amazing Queue, that everyone must experience once. However Avatar Flight of Passage is still the better Fastpass+ Selection, for guests 44″ or taller.
Otherwise, choose Na’vi River Journey, an intriguing boat ride through a bioluminescent rainforest. This ride is great for all ages. The line is typically shorter, however defiantly choose one to Fastpass+ to save time. Then use your other 2 selections elsewhere in Animal Kingdom.
2. Order your meal from Line
Satu’li Canteen was the First Disney Restaurant To Offer Mobile Ordering. This convenient feature allows guests to skip the lines and use the My Disney Experience app to order by selecting, customizing and paying. Therefore, while you are waiting somewhere else (such as where you didn’t use your Fastpass+), use this time to pre-order Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner!
Once you arrive at the Satu’li Canteen, tap the “I’m here” button in the app. Next, guests will receive an alert in the app their order is ready, guests may then head to the pick up counter.
3. Visit at Night
Pandora – World of Avatar is amazing during the day with its floating mountains and more. However in the evening, Pandora comes to life. The bioluminescent plants and pathways make Pandora – World of Avatar glow at night.
Even though there are lights, do be prepared in the darkness of the evening and keep an extra eye on not getting separated from your group while exploring.
4. Pongu Pongu
Pongu Pongu is perfect for a refreshing, out of this world drink. For a drink that glows Pongu Pongu is a must try. Consider the non-alcoholic, Night Blossom with Glowing Unadelta Seed or the Mo’ara Margarita with Glowing Unadelta Seed for those guests 21+.
These glowing drinks add to the magic of Pandora – World of Avatar, especially in the evening when they will stand out more.
5. Banshee Magic Shot
Look for the photopass photographer in front of the Floating Mountains for a photo keepsake. Ask them to do the Banshee Magic Shot. The end result is having a Banshee flying in your photo with the Floating Mountains as the back drop. This is included with your Memory Maker purchase.
Keep in mind, the Banshee Magic Shot is only available during the day. Therefore, while visiting during the night is a must so is a visit in the day. This is one of the few sections of Disney World that give unique experiences per day and night.
