Pandora Family Floating Mountains

    Going to Disney at the end of November! I set up our fastpasses the 1st day I was able -30 day mark. There were never fastpasses available for Navi River Journey at Animal Kingdom. Is it not accepting fast passes or were they somehow gone already?

    Welcome, Lauren! My family and I just experienced Pandora at Animal Kingdom Park last week and let me tell you, it is simply stunning!

    Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort are able to book FastPass+ reservations 60 days prior to their trip, so that is why many of the FastPass+ selections were already booked when you logged in.

    But, I have great news about Na'vi River Journey. Since Animal Kingdom has a tiered system for FastPass+ reservations, meaning we could only choose one from the first tier and our other two FastPasses from the second, we had to decide between a FastPass for Na'vi River Journey and Avatar Flight of Passage. Knowing my family wanted to experience both, we opted for the Flight of Passage FastPass. I'm so glad we did. Our plan was to arrive early at the gates before the park opened so we could head straight to Na'vi River Journey before the park got crowded, and it worked out perfectly! We got to the gates an hour before the posted opening time, and were happy when half hour before opening, all guests were led partway into the park and then stopped at a location there. Those heading to Pandora waited right at the bridge to Pandora, for our first glimpse of the land! Before the park even officially opened, we were then led into the land and right to the two rides! The majority of guests headed to Flight of Passage, and since we had FastPasses for later, we went right to Na'vi River Journey. My kids were so thrilled to be the first guests of the day on that ride! We rode it twice with no wait and could have gone one more time, but we had to get to our breakfast reservations.

    So, don't miss that ride through Pandora's bioluminescent forest! Arrive early and head there first thing, Lauren! Have so much fun!
