One Thought to “How Do You Do Disney?”

    Well..sometimes you just gotta “wing it”. We arrived at Animal Kingdom two days after the new Flight of the Avatar opened. We were WAY to late to plan on getting fast passes, as I did not even realize this was a new ride until two weeks before our trip. We left our hotel at 6:30 a.m. to catch a bus to the park. The “gates opened” at 7:15 to let everyone into the park. A herd of people ran directly to the newly opened Pandora section of the park, where we waited in line until 8:00 for it to open. As I waited in line, I noticed there were about fifty people in front of us. When I turned around, there were AT LEAST 650 people behind waiting in line. Somehow we managed to get on and off of the Flight of Avatar by 8:45, at which point the wait time for the ride was 190 minutes long! It had gotten up to 290 minutes that day… That’s 5 hours! It WAS an amazing ride. It was honestly probably the best ride I’ve ever been on at Disney. I would not stand in line for five hours for ANYTHING, but I would probably stand in line for 1 1/2 to ride it again. Highly Highly recommended by MY BUSY MOM.
