DisNews – World of Pandora Attractions

DisNews – World of Pandora Attractions

I know I’ve already posted a DisNews post about Pandora, but I can’t help but post another. Disney has begun some preview days, and released a video of one of the animatronics in the Na’vi River Ride.

And they look AMAZING.

Na’vi River Journey

Just take a few minutes to give this a look – I mean, the movements are seriously smooth, and the details are just mind boggling. The amount of engineering that went into that…. I can’t wait to see it! There are a few other videos from what looks to be a media preview on YouTube. Some of them have longer clips of this, and really its just amazing what they’ve done. Whether you liked the movies or not, I think seeing the new area of Animal Kingdom will definitely be worth it. If nothing else, its pretty to look at!

Avatar Flight of Passage

The river ride looks fun, but pretty laid back. (That is NOT a complaint!) But the Avatar Flight of Passage ride looks pretty awesome. The details about it floating around the internet seem to be mysterious and vague, but it looks to me like a combination of a 4D ride and Soarin’ – and that is something I would definitely go for! Especially if its as pretty to look at as the movies were. Besides that, I love Soarin’, as well as 4D movie experiences.

The spectacular flying experience will give guests a birds-eye view of the beauty and grandeur of the world of Pandora on an aerial rite of passage. (Disney Parks)

My problem is I know we’ll probably only get to see one of the two attractions, as they currently have the FastPass system set up with tiers for these, meaning you can only pick one when you choose your first three fast passes. Since we’re planning to FP Rivers of Light, it means we’ll only be able to get to one. (Unless the lines are shorter than I’m thinking they will be this August.) If that ends up being the case, which one do I pick?!?
