1. Ride Avatar Flight of Passage
Pandora- The World of Avatar has two great attractions, but our favourite has to be Avatar Flight of Passage. This incredible ride lets you fly high above Pandora on the back of a banshee! We were lucky enough to try out the ride, and it really is out of this world. First, you must be paired with an Avatar and then you’ll be ready to start your adventure. The state-of-the-art technology makes you feel as though you really are flying, and the attraction is so realistic, that you’ll be able to feel the banshee breathing during your flight.
Feel the rushing breeze as you swoop deep into the Valley of Mo’ara and take in the smell of the earth and plants around you. Soar above the sea and you’ll smell the fresh, salty water, but be prepared for the ocean spray! We don’t want to give too much away, but trust us when we say this is an unforgettable ride you won’t want to miss.
It’s hard to put into words how amazing this ride is. The only way to find out is to give it a go for yourself.
Top tip: We’d recommend using Disney’s FastPass+ service for this ride to avoid the queues.
2. Dine at the Satu’li Canteen
When you’re feeling hungry, the Satu’li Canteen is the perfect place to go. This is Pandora’s main restaurant, as well as a former RDA mess hall. The food is both healthy and delicious, and you'll even be able to create your own unique dish. First you choose between tasty slow-roasted grilled beef, wood-grilled chicken, panko breaded sustainable fish or chilli-spiced crispy tofu. Next, you’ll choose a base for your dish. Options include quinoa and vegetable salad, red and sweet potato hash, mixed whole grain and rice or romaine and kale salad. Finally, you must select either charred onion chimichurri, black bean vinaigrette or creamy herb dressing to go on top. We’d recommend trying the mouth-watering Avatar-inspired desserts too.
Top tip: You can use Disney’s Mobile Ordering service to order your meal through the My Disney Experience App. When you’re ready to eat, head to the Satu’li Canteen and your food will be freshly prepared and waiting for you at the pick-up point.
3. Take a selfie in front of the floating mountains
The floating mountains are an iconic part of the Avatar movie and fans will be able to see them up close in this amazing land. The breath-taking mountains make for the perfect selfie, so make sure you’ve got your camera at the ready! The huge mountains are the centre point of Pandora, and as you explore the Valley of Mo’ara, you’ll discover hundreds of colourful flora and exotic plants all around you.
4. Experience Pandora at night
As night falls, Pandora awakens and you can see the land in a whole new light…literally! The beautiful plants begin to glow and the land is transformed into something totally different. The bioluminescent plants are striking against the darkness, and you’ll be truly amazed by what you see. Make sure you check out the floating mountains too and the glowing blue waterfalls that rush down the side. As you walk through the land, you’ll notice that even the floor beneath you is glowing! We’d definitely recommend staying at the park until after dark, as this is something you must see!
5. Get a Na’vi makeover
Ever wondered what it’s like to be an Avatar? Well, at Windtraders souvenir shop, you can transform yourself into a Na’vi action figure, and we think that’s the next best thing! The ACE Avatar Maker uses a high-tech digital process and a facial capture scanner to make a Na’vi action figure that looks just like the owner. You’ll then be able to choose a body type, as well as eye colour, hairstyle and a facial striping pattern- just like the Na’vi people. This is a great chance for you to find out exactly what you’d look like if you were an Avatar. It’s something that both kids and big kids will love, and is an amazing souvenir to take home.
