Pandora – The World of Avatar to Offer Nightly Extra Magic Hours (Plus FastPass+ News!)

Pandora - The World of Avatar

Well, there’s one more reason to stay at an on-site Walt Disney World hotel this summer. You see, for a limited time, only May 27 through July 4, Guests who are staying staying at one of the Walt Disney World hotels can explore Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom beyond regular Park hours, courtesy of nightly Extra Magic Hours.

These Evening Extra Magic Hours will certainly be right for the night owls, as they will take place from 11:00 p.m. until 1:00 a.m. Only Pandora – The World of Avatar will be open;  no other attractions in the park will be open to Guests. Do keep in mind that in order to visit during these extra hours, valid theme park admission and a Resort ID will be required. During this extra time in the park, Resort Guests will be able to experience both the Na’vi River Journey and Avatar Flight of Passage attractions.

Oh….speaking of the two attractions….FastPass+ reservations will be able to be made beginning tomorrow for Guests staying at select Walt Disney Resort hotels. FastPass+ reservations can be made up to 60 days prior to check-in beginning March 24. FastPass+ will be available for both attractions, but Guests will only be able to select one of these two attractions in their first set of FastPass+ selections for the day. If you are lucky enough to snag a FastPass+ for the second attraction, you will have to do so day of and after you have used your first three. (No word yet on any additional specific tiering being brought to Disney’s Animal Kingdom yet.)

Make sure to check the blog tomorrow for additional information regarding FastPass+ for Pandora – The World of Avatar! Oh and for more information about the land, make sure to read our “Everything You Need to Know” Guide.

    It’s a nice thought, but there’s no way I’m staying in any park that late.

      Really? I love being at the parks at night. It is so beautiful, way less crowded and much less hot. MK will be open until midnight during my Easter trip and I am sooo glad.

    Is there any way your might put together a touring plan for a late-arrival day at AK that utilizes the nightly Pandora EMH?

      I second this! It would be very helpful!
