mom and son on Kilimanjaro Safari

    Looking for advice? To be able to avoid crowds at Pandora should I get a pre-park Tusker breakfast and schedule a fast past for FOP. Once done eating head for the stand by line for Na vi River? Also is the safaris a Tier 1 or 2?

    Hi Brandi!

    It's awesome to help you once again here on the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Your plan sounds perfect to me! A breakfast at Tusker House Restaurant will surely give you a lot of energy to discover the magical atmosphere of Pandora - The World of Avatar.

    The Na'vi River Journey is a great way to start a day at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and I totally agree with you that the best plan is indeed to book a FastPass+ for Avatar Flight of Passage. That is my favorite attraction at the Walt Disney World Resort, and I bet you are going to love it too. My special tip regarding Avatar Flight of Passage is to come back to the standby queue at the very end of the night, as it is usually smaller.

    But before that, I am sure you will enjoy an amazing Kilimanjaro Safaris experience, and I'm happy to tell you that it is not a Tier 1 FastPass+ attraction, since the two attractions at Pandora - The World of Avatar are the only Tier 1 options at this Theme Park. 

    Magical Tip: My last visit to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park was even more magical when I got closer to the animals by experiencing the Up Close with Rhinos adventure. This tour gave me the chance to discover new fascinating facts about these magnificent animals and talk to the keepers that provide the care for them. It really gave me a new perspective about Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and I hope you can fit it in your itinerary - it is truly astonishing.

    The Disney Parks Moms Panel is here to make your December trip as magical as it can be.

    May the magic be with you!
