Disney has confirmed that FastPass+ for Pandora – The World of Avatar will open to guests starting March 24th at 7AM EST.  Guests that are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort with valid park admission linked to their My Disney Experience account will be able to make FastPass+ selections for attractions in the area 60 days in advance from the first day of their stay.  This gives them a huge advantage on other guests to snatch up the FastPass+ selections.  Guests will only be able to select 1 of the 2 attractions in the new land, so that will help the FastPass+ selections go a little further.  We expect these to go extremely fast and stay booked up for a long while since guests will be flocking to experience these new attractions first-hand.


Disney also announced details about Extra Magic Hours.  Extra Magic Hours will occur nightly from May 27th through July 4th at Disney’s Animal Kingdom from 11Am – 1AM only in the section for Pandora – The World of Avatar.  This will give guests staying at Walt Disney World Resort the opportunity to experience more of the land without as many guests (although we still expect this to be extremely popular).  We hope that this will help to alleviate some of the traffic concerns during the day at the park since resort guests will get special access in the evening. Valid theme park admission for Disney’s Animal Kingdom will be required in order to take advantage of the Extra Magic Hours option.

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!
