Walt Disney World Imagineers exceed expectations with every new park, every new world, every new resort. The most recent Pandora- The World of Avatar at Walt Disney's Animal Kingdom Park is breathtakingly beautiful. As you enter into the Valley of Mo'ara and leave earth to enter another world, the sounds, the glowing flora and fauna, playful plant life that reacts to your movement and touch- everything invite you into an adventure of the senses. Floating mountains welcome you to a winding path to explore and celebrate nature to the sounds of the Na'vi tribe.
Head to the left of the floating mountains and ride Na’vi River Journey, a serene boat ride through a bioluminescent forest full of creatures, creations, and sounds of the mesmerizing and beautiful Shaman of Songs. (Fastpass+ recommended!)
To the right of the mountains is the entrance to Avatar Flight of Passage- the show stopper. The ride not to be missed. If you have the patience to wait in the ride queue, you'll slowly wander through the lab and see the avatars prepared for their journey. I'd highly recommend planning ahead with a Fastpass+ for this one though and skipping the queue; wait times are hours long due to popularity! You will be paired with an avatar and, through a bike-like 3D simulation ride, have the experience of flying on the back of a banshee. It's like nothing you can imagine. Sivako! (Na'vi for "rise to the challenge")
THE FOOD. AHHHHHMAZING. Healthy (and not so healthy) options. Tons of flavor and creativity and no chicken fingers and fries. Rest and enjoy a meal at the Satu'li Canteen or grab a fun frosty drink at the Pongu Pongu drink stand.
