This doesn’t come as much of a shock as Avatar — Flight of Passage has been one of the most popular attractions at Walt Disney World ever since it opened in 2017. Additionally, Disney CEO Bob Chapek confirmed that the theme parks — Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom — have already started increasing capacity once again, which could result in longer wait times at select attractions.

At this time, we do not know exactly what percentage of capacity Disney World is operating at, but we know it is higher than 35%.

If you have never ridden on the back of a banshee at Avatar — Flight of Passage, Walt Disney World describes this thrilling attraction 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!
