Walt Disney World Makes Changes to Pandora – The World of Avatar Opening Procedures

Credit: Disney

Since Pandora – The World of Avatar first opened, it has been extremely popular.  Guests continue to rave about this immersive land and all of the unique experiences that it has to offer.  Disney has offered additional Extra Magic Hours and other measures to help give guests more time to experience the land and other measures to try to keep traffic flow manageable with the larger quantities of guests exploring the area.  Before, guests heading over to the land first thing in the morning were able to enter or exit at the bridge next to Tiffins and the bridge to Harambe.  Avatar Flight of Passage causes traffic and congestion issues around the Harambe bridge.


Now, with Disney is closing the Harambe bridge entrance in the morning until the line for Avatar Flight of Passage is short enough to allow the bridge to be open and not create add to the congestion and frustration from all the traffic.  Disney cast members are monitoring the queue and controlling the traffic until the bridge entrance is re-opened.  If you will be headed to the land first thing in the morning, it is advised to enter via the bridge next to Tiffins so that you make sure you are able to get in and don’t reach a dead end.

How many of you have visited Pandora – The World of Avatar so far?  What do you think of the land?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
