5 Things You'll Love about Avatar Flight of Passage and 2 Things You Won’t

Flight of Passage Seat

1. The Seating

Dislike: The most negative feedback that Cast Members are receiving from guests on Flight of Passage is the seating, which prevents some guests from riding.  Curiously, a person’s ability to fit in the ride seat has more to do with the shape of their body than their size.  The rider straddles a motorcycle-style seat and then slides forward into a chest pad.  If the back and leg restraints cannot firmly engage, the guest cannot ride.  While the seat will accommodate many larger guests, certain body types will have more difficulties fitting.  For many, it comes down to whether or not they carry their weight at the level of the chest pad.  Guests who may encounter issues include people with pear-shaped bodies, shorter women with large chests, and tall guests who have very long legs.  Disney World has taken steps to avoid some of the negative feedback, including putting a tester seat out in front of the attraction and plans to incorporate larger seats into the attraction.

Pandora – The World of Avatar gave Animal Kingdom an incredible reason to extend their hours well into the night, and Flight of Passage gives guests a reason to return again and again. It is an iconic experience that will be the benchmark for all future Disney attractions.
