This is our favourite Disney Park! Love expedition Everest! The world of Pandora is probably my new favourite ride anywhere. Full experience with this ride. To take full advantage of what the Park has to offer, you need to book fast passes the minute you can online, Stay at a Disney property to take advantage of the early magic morning. We attended during Spring break, and were able to enjoy rides without a crazy wait, and by entering the Park early. We rode Everest 5 times, and did Pandora x3.
My one negative with this Park is that you cannot obtain lunch type food until 11:00, near The Dinosaur area. Any type of food is hard to locate early in the morning in this area. We could have crossed the Park for food, but that seemed extreme. Take more time to educate yourselves on where to eat by using the My Disney Experience app. Check out the trail walks, well worth it to make the trek to see the Gorillas. Ensure you see this Park in the dark, it’s gorgeous!

This is my favorite park. The Flight of Avatar in the Pandora section is the best ride I have ever been on. EVER! You really feel like your flying like how they portray 3D rides in the commercials that’s how it feels. The park opens at 8am but I would get there by 7am so you have enough time to park and take the tram to the entrance of the park. Then you have enough time to get through security check.

Then there is a line to get into the park and you have to swipe your wristband or card that they give you. Once you get through that gate you have to sprint to the entrance of Pandora. There will be a line of cast members blocking you from going to the ride. Once they start moving you have to follow the cast member that’s going to the Flight of Avatar ride. If your thinking about taking a short cut around the line don’t, they won’t let you in, you’ll have to wait until the end of the line pasts. There was about 100-150 people in front of me but o was on the ride within 15 minutes. Last time I waited 3 hours which is well worth it but way better with a shorter wait. If you can get a fast pass for the ride o would highly suggest it.

The Na’vi River ride is also one of my favorites. Disney is all about the details and I mean they truly thought about everything. Get a fast pass for this if you can or be at the park by rope drop.

Also where some running shoes, it’s like a mad rush at the beginning but part of the fun.

A great place to see. The Tree of Life was so amazing, the Kilimanjaro safari was a great ride. We used our fast pass for this and would definitely do this every time we visit. The gorilla exhibit was so amazing. You can easily spend a lot of time just watching them. Also the tigers in the Asia section was a great treat to watch. If you are a Lion King fan a must see is the Lion King Festival show. The vision of the Disney organization is so awesome. Well worth the money spent and definitely worth a return trip.

I've given each disney theme park 5 stars and this gets 5 stars too. Brilliant, the Pandora world is awesome and stunning at night, the ride was so good we did it twice. I would 100% recommend that you visit this place if you can, brilliant.

We went just before spring break when the queues were ok ish. Overall I liked Animal Kingdom A’s did my kids 8 & 10, who are not mad into Disney. Everest Expedition was great, the river rapids ok, the safari very good but the big sell for the park is Avatar; the flight of the banshee was one of my favourites across all the Florida parks a 4d master class, the river boat thing is not worth waiting for (we had a fast pass), if you can only get one fast pass it has to be for flight of the banshee. The musicals are as usual from Disney very good and enjoyable both Lion king and Nemo, great day out; as always with the parks if you arrive before the coaches (11 ish) you can get on most things apart from the Avatar rides in a reasonable length of time.

We found the queues best first and last thing in the day, they dipped at lunchtime 1-2 and dinner 5:30-7, the app is slow to register these dips (but still an absolute must have) and by the time it does the queues will be getting longer again.
