    Default Pandora/Avatar Attraction - How long will it take before you see it?

    I'm guessing that I will not be able to do the Pandora attraction until next year unless I visit Disney every month (which I can't afford to do). How long do you think it will take you to see the Pandora attraction in MK?

    40 days. We plan to do a rope drop one day, and have fast passes for another day.

    Hopefully in 118 days if we can get fast passes, if not, we'll attempt the rope drop!

    We have Fastpasses for River Journey, with Flights of Passage we accepted that FP was unlikely to happen so we are going to try our luck with standby and hope crowds are kinder at the start of September!

    I wouldn't waste a fastpass on river journey. Give it a year for everyone to have ridden it once and it will be a 10 minute walk on ride.

    I rode the day before it opened, and didn't even wait an hour the second time I rode (first time I walked on)

    Our visits are pretty rare, it's been 7 years since we last went (organising for everyone to go to US at the same time now we're all grown up and working is tricky!) so this August/September could be our only chance for a while!

    Its wait time is listed as 65 minutes on the Disney World app at the moment (joint 2nd with Everest, after FOP) so it probably deserves the FP for us right now, especially as it is brand new for us!

    It's 4 years since our last visit. For UK guests it's becoming a lot more difficult / expensive for return visits and when we do make it to WDW need to make the most of our time there. I completely agree with Giggy in that a FP for River Journey at the moment is well worth it, due to the new / curiosity factor. Next year may be another story. We've got a FP for River Journey for Day 1 of our visit in September. We're there for 14 days, staying on site, and have managed to secure 5 FPs for FOP during the latter half of our stay. Will definitely be spending the time we will save out of the standby lines exploring other attractions, as we don't know when we'll be going back.

    We rode it this past Saturday evening. We were told that the wait times were better late night during extra magic hours, so we planned on doing everything else during the day and then crossing our fingers after dark. The ride was consistently 210 minutes and we decided to hop in line at 9:30pm anyway as they said it might get worse right before the normal closing hour. About 60 minutes into the wait they kept saying that the ride was experiencing limited capacity and I was afraid the wait would extend beyond 210. We actually waited for just under two hours I think because people were leaving because of the ominous message. The ride was far better than everyone in our group's expectations. We were tempted to wait in line for a second ride with the wait time posted at now 110 minutes but we decided next time.

    We just got back and a couple we spoke to waited 5 hours for Flight of Passage, and that was at rope drop. It probably just depends on the day. It's difficult to project how a ride wait will look.
    "When hinges creak in doorless chambers... and strange and frightening sounds echo through the halls.. whenever candlelights flicker... where the air is deathly still... that is the time when ghosts are present... practicing their terror with ghoulish delight."

    we are in the world now and have been on 3 times. We came with no fastpasses as none were available at the time we planned. We waited in line 2 times the first the posted wait time was 110 min, we waited 65. The second time was posted as 130 min, we waited 110. We are on a bus now as I write this on our way to ride it for a 4th time. The 3rd/4th times we rode we got fastpasses by checking in the middle of the day the day of and got fast passes both times, i couldn't believe it!! Its the most amazing ride i have ever been on and i have rode a ton of roller coasters and thrill rides....
