Get there around 7:30 am, stand in line and BOLT to Pandora for the Flight of Passage ride. Even if you have to follow a huge crowd to start, the line will only be about an hour long, which is SHORT! The attraction is worth up to a 90 minute wait. But, much beyond that? Naw...hit the other attractions.

This is my favorite of the Disney Parks. I recommend a full day to fully explore this park. Download the My Disney Experince app to know where characters will be, parade times, and when other interactive shows will be. Also the app will let you know wait times so you can properly plan you day. All the food that I have tasted at the park has been delicious!

Disappointed with what there was to see - wildlife was very nice but many of rides, etc. were nothing great and those that were supposedly were good (and had HUGE lineups) were not all to my liking. Probably more interesting to children than to us middle aged "seniors". Wouldn't ever go to this again personally and probably not recommend to others.

We hadn’t visited for a number of years so we were excited to return. This park has great shows including the Legend of the Lion King and Finding Nemo. The great roller-coaster Expedition Everest and the brilliant new Pandora area.

The park does seem a lot busier than it used to be and that’s probably down to the amazingly themed Pandora area. The Avatar Flight of Passage ride is quite probably the best of its type I’ve ever ridden. The ride wait time was huge and we braced ourself and queued. We were unable to get fastpass + for it. It was well worth the wait.

We were lucky in the other choices of fastpass+ that we booked as wait times were high for ALL the attractions.

It’s well worth waiting for the Rivers of Light show which was absolutely stunning.

A great day out much enjoyed by all.

Pandora is cool and looks cool but its just a small part of this place. Plus if you dont have a fast pass you can waste half your day waiting in line. Sit down food places are limited so get a reservation. I loved the animals and the safari ride but if could do it all over again I would have just spent a day at Discovery Cove instead.
