Test Seat Offered for Walt Disney World’s Avatar Flight of Passage

Guests have provided feedback all across social media about concerns that some guests may experience when riding one of the newest attractions at Walt Disney World, Avatar Flight of Passage.  This new attraction is set to officially open on May 27th when Pandora- The World of Avatar opens to all guests.  There have been numerous concerns expressed during the preview from guests that rode Avatar Flight of Passage that guest who are a little larger in size may have an issue fitting on the attraction.  There were guests turned away because the seat for the attraction couldn’t close as needed.  Disney has since added test seats at the front of the attraction so that guests can test the seats before they get in the line (which is expected to be very long for a while..).  This will hopefully help alleviate any guest frustration or embarrassment.

There will also be signs out front that demonstrate to guests how they can transfer from their wheel chair if needed.  This is meant to help guests so that they know they can transfer and still ride, even if the new and different ride seat looks to be a little bit daunting to some guests.  The attraction looks to be a lot of fun from what we have seen so far, and it has received great feedback from guests.  We can’t wait to see this new land officially open on this busy holiday weekend!

What do you all think of the addition of the test seat?

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!
