It also allows you to enter the world of Pandora! One of the biggest attractions inside The World of Avatar is Avatar – Flight of Passage.  Usually, while you’re distracted by the floating mountains along the queue, you might not even notice how long the wait time is to experience this incredible 3D attraction.

Today, though, might be a different story, as this ride is currently facing a longer wait time than usual.

According to the My Disney Experience App, the standby wait time for Avatar – Flight of Passage has reached 145 minutes!

This might be due to the fact that the popular roller coaster, Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain, has been temporarily interrupted off and on for almost a week, and was not operational again when the Park opened this morning! 

If you’re planning on visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom and riding attractions, we suggest heading to The World of Avatar first to avoid the long line later in the afternoon — and, as always, check the My Disney Experience app for the latest details about ride closures and wait times.

Disney officially describes Avatar – Flight of Passage as:

Board your own mountain banshee and embark on a thrilling expedition, where interstellar explorers like you get an up-close look at this moon’s incredible landscape.

Bonding with a banshee is a crucial step in the life of a Na’vi hunter on Pandora—and flying on the back of one of these powerful creatures is an important rite of passage.

Now, as a visitor to Pandora, you finally have the chance to test yourself like a Na’vi!
