Florida Resident 3 & 4-Day “Discover Disney” Discount Tickets Return; Potential AVATAR Opening Date Revealed

The Florida Resident Discover Disney 3-Day and 4-Day tickets will be returning to Walt Disney World and are on sale now, but the most interesting thing about them is a series of blackout dates only for the Animal Kingdom park.

The tickets themselves are good for 3 or 4-days of visits to Walt Disney World theme parks between January 4th until June 9th, 2017. The 3-day ticket is $139.00 for ages 3 and up and the 4-day ticket is $159.00 for ages 3 and up. Guests can also add then Water Parks Fun and More Option at a discounted price.

Pandora: The World of AVATAR is scheduled to open Summer 2017 at Disney'sAnimal Kingdom. Does that mean May 27th, 2017?

The most interesting facet of this is the blockout dates exclusive to Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park that begin on May 27th, 2017 and run through the end of the tickets on June 9th. Based on when these dates are, it seems likely that this is currently penciled in as the official opening of Pandora: The World of AVATAR at the park. As we learned from Rivers of Light, these things are always subject to change, but it seems likely that Pandora will kick off the Summer season with a grand opening during Memorial Day weekend 2017. 

Disney has stated that Pandora: The World of AVATAR will open Summer 2017. Memorial Day weekend is often considered the beginning of the U.S. summer season.

Pandora opening in 2017 is as likely as Hilary Clinton being elected president.

I’ll be down from May 6-11. Do you think that even though the grand opening wouldn’t be for a couple more weeks, that the area would be open for guests to at least walk through? Or potentially have soft openings for the attractions?

Definitely not counting on it. Just hoping to maybe at least be allowed to walk through.

[…] our friends over at WDW News Today point out, there’s literally no other reason for there to be a block-out during this time […]

I’m glad I bought the 4 day Disney select ticket when I did. Blackouts don’t start until June!
