You’re invited to get an early peek of a groundbreaking destination–Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park.

    According to the article a few days ago, it was supposed to happen at beginning of April. Alternative Facts or just bad sources?

    • Tom Corless

      As the article said, if you read it, things are subject to change. I tweeted the correction last night before this even came out. Sometimes things pan out and sometimes they don’t.

    I already registered but I never got the confirmation email, but when I go to register again it says I’m already registered…. am I the only one with this error :(

  4. Courtney

    Is anyone getting the link to open, but then the Primary Guest and Registered Guest has nothing under it? Not sure what to do from here.

    • Jess

      Both you and the guest need to be annual passholder and both of you have to share all plans to show up as a registered guest.

  5. Julie Collum

    It only showed the page I was suppose to print for one second and then it was gone. I don’t know what to do now 😞

  6. Stephanie Raymer

    I don’t have an annual pass, because I am no longer a Florida resident, but my sister does. We will both be in Orlando May 9-13th. I plan on getting Disney tickets while I’m there. If she registers for the Pandora preview, would she be able to bring me as a guest?

    • Tdemco

      It says: If an Annual Passholder would like to register a Guest to accompany them, that Guest must also have a valid annual pass for admission to the event’s theme park location on the date of the event. So unless you get an annual pass she won’t be able to take you.

    I keep getting this message even though I’m only trying for a party of 1:

    No Events Found
    Please try adjusting your party size. You may also want to double-check that each Guest entered is an eligible Passholder and that you haven’t already registered for this event.

    Found out about this at 11:50cst finally got signed in – all spots gone by 11:59. :( So disappointed!! There was supposedly an email that went out to pass holders – I didn’t get one. The same thing happened for reserved seating for Festival of he Arts Concert.

    Wonder why all of us didn’t get an email? I have reservations for that week. Called around 11 this am and the spots were booked. 😞

  11. Kaleena

    Thanks Disney. Want to know when my email came…12:36 pm THIS AFTERNOON!!!! How in the heck was I ever suppose to know about that AFTER THE FACT? There are no slots available anymore.😭

  12. Lisa

    I wish that Disney actually sent the email to all the passholders. I never received it. I have checked my info and they have my correct email but i never received it. But this is the Disney way. They are happy to tKe my money but not send me info that i should get with my annual pass.

  13. Taylor Hanagriff

    My email came at 4:36 pm and everything was gone by then. Disappointed that the email was sent so late, when many of the slots were taken.

  14. Diane

    We are disney pass holders and we didnt get a email either . And I try to register on the site it just says event is full . Are they going to open up.any more ???even being pass holders we can never get on new rides when they open :(

    • Lauren

      I seriously had no idea about this. How do we get opted in to these kind of emails alerting if there is an AP only event thing?

  15. Diane Bevlacqua

    We have been passholders for 5years and never get emails to ride rides before the public . Why is this ?????and it really stinks knowing we live here and only get 30 days put to get a fast pass. It will probably be over 6months before we can get one

    • Kris S.

      Diane, I am with you!!! We never receive ANY notice of ANY special perks for being passholders. To have to read about it after the fact is just annoying. We shouldn’t have to search for our benefits that WDW sold us on as perks of being passholders. Disappointed to say the least!
