Walt Disney World Resort is home to many world-class attractions and four unique theme parks in Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Perhaps one of the most popular Disney World attractions can be found in Disney’s Animal Kingdom in the new Avatar-themed land known as Pandora – The World of Avatar. The ride, called Flight of Passage is a combination of the best parts of Star Tours and Soarin’, putting Guests on a thrilling journey in the world of Avatar. 

It’s immersive, exciting, and super high-tech, resulting in one of the most complete and satisfying experiences within the entire Walt Disney World Resort. However, Disney recently changed parts of the queue after several Guests reported being injured.

These same Guests spoke out about the dangerous queue a few days ago, stating that there were sharp wires sticking out throughout the line which poked them enough to draw blood. While we are glad to see Disney make an effort to keep Guests safe, according to this Guest, Disney still has a few spots to change.
