Avatar Flight of Passage at Walt Disney World Receives Award

Avatar Flight of Passage is one of the attractions that opened when Pandora – The World of Avatar first opened at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World.  The immersive, themed land opened in 2017.  Avatar Flight of Passage continues to maintain long lines and receives rave reviews from guests.  Disney Parks Blog announced today that the Visual Effects Society (VES) granted Avatar Flight of Passage one of their amazing awards.  The attraction won the award for Outstanding Visual Effects in a Special Venue Project.  This is great win for the attraction and all of the cast members that have worked hard to offer this experience for guests that visit the park.

Avatar Flight of Passage is an amazing 3-D ride where guests soar all over Pandora on the back of one of the mountain banshees.  It is a completely immersive experience where guests even experience and feel the little details like the banshee breathing under them while in flight.  The attraction has received another award prior to this one.  The award was a Thea Award for Outstanding Achievement: Attraction.  This is definitely unlike any attraction that you have ever experienced before at Walt Disney World or anywhere else.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
