5. Pandora: The World of Avatar – Animal Kingdom
The bioluminescent world inspired by James Cameron’s Avatar opened to the public on May 27, 2017, but many Disney fanatics have yet to make their yearly pilgrimage to the parks since its opening and are just recently getting the chance to experience this fascinating land and the two attractions inside it—Avatar: Flight of Passage and Na’vi River Journey. Slightly short of a year after their openings, both remain so wildly popular among Guests that wait times in the stand-by queues exceed 3 hours for Flight of Passage and 1 ½ to 2 hours for Na’vi River Journey, especially during peak seasons. Even the most expansive vocabulary falls woefully short of describing the two one-of-a-kind attractions. Each attraction showcases some of the best work by Disney Imagineering in its history, and if you’ve yet to experience them, you’re in for quite the impressive treat! Be sure to secure your FastPass+ times for these attractions 60 days before your visit if you’re staying on Disney property and 30 days before your visit if you’re staying off property.
