What's Included in Extra Magic Hours at Pandora?
What will you see with the nightly "Extra" Extra Magic Hours at Pandora? This extra time will let you sail on the Na’vi River Journey, which will take you down a sacred river hidden within a bioluminescent rainforest for an encounter with the Shaman of Songs. On Avatar Flight of Passage, you'll connect with your own avatar and fly over Pandora on the back of a mountain banshee. Along with cultural dining at Satu’li Canteen, tasty beverages at Pongu Pongu and shopping at Windtraders, this evening access will let you soak in the nighttime wonder of the Valley of Mo’ara.
The Benefits of Staying at a Disney World Resort Hotel
Extra Magic Hours are just one of the many benefits that guests receive by booking a stay at a Disney World Resort hotel. Each day at least one of the theme parks offers extended hours for Disney World Resort hotel guests to enjoy select attractions. This Pandora—The World of Avatar "Extra" benefit is in addition to the Extra Magic Hours available to guests at Disney's Animal Kingdom and the other Disney theme parks. Go here to see all of the benefits of staying at a Disney World hotel, including first dibs on making FastPass+ reservations, and pick which hotel is right for you.
Before you pack your bags for Pandora, consider what hotel you'll be staying at. The closest hotel to Disney's Animal Kingdom is Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. These deluxe Africa-inspired accommodations are incredibly close to the theme park. It's also our favorite Disney Deluxe Resort. Also nearby are Disney's Coronado Springs, Disney's All-Star Movies, Disney's All-Star Music and Disney's All-Star Sports Resorts.
Disney Resort hotel rooms are flying fast. That's no surprise since the "Extra" Extra Magic Hours Access to Pandora — The World of Avatar for Disney Resort Hotel guests ends July 4th. So book your room today and prepare to visit an amazing new land that's unlike anything on Earth!
