Disney has confirmed that FastPass+ for Pandora – The World of Avatar will open to guests starting March 24th at 7AM EST. Guests that are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort with valid park admission linked to their My Disney Experience account will be able to make FastPass+ selections for attractions in the area 60 days in advance from the first day of their stay. This gives them a huge advantage on other guests to snatch up the FastPass+ selections. Guests will only be able to select 1 of the 2 attractions in the new land, so that will help the FastPass+ selections go a little further. We expect these to go extremely fast and stay booked up for a long while since guests will be flocking to experience these new attractions first-hand.
Disney also announced details about Extra Magic Hours. Extra Magic Hours will occur nightly from May 27th through July 4th at Disney’s Animal Kingdom from 11Am – 1AM only in the section for Pandora – The World of Avatar. This will give guests staying at Walt Disney World Resort the opportunity to experience more of the land without as many guests (although we still expect this to be extremely popular). We hope that this will help to alleviate some of the traffic concerns during the day at the park since resort guests will get special access in the evening. Valid theme park admission for Disney’s Animal Kingdom will be required in order to take advantage of the Extra Magic Hours option.
