“Extra” Extra Magic Hours
If you are staying a Walt Disney World Resort hotel DO NOT MISS this opportunity! Disney is opening up what they are dubbing “Extra” Extra Magic Hours, exclusively in Pandora – The World of Avatar. The hours are from 11:00 PM to 1:00 AM, May 27 to July 4, 2017.
Please note: this benefit is in addition to the Extra Magic Hours already available to Disney Resort hotel Guests at Disney’s Animal Kingdom park.
Plan Ahead with FastPass+
And finally, be sure to book FastPass+ selections for Avatar Flight of Passage or Na’vi River Journey long before you arrive. If you are faced with picking always go with Avatar Flight of Passage. The Na’vi River Journey is a constantly moving ride that allows lots of people to ride at once which makes us believe the wait times will be far shorter for this attraction.
