PHOTOS, VIDEO: Look Inside Pandora – The World of AVATAR and the “Flight of Passage” Banshee Thrill Ride at Animal Kingdom

This morning, Good Morning America took us inside Pandora: The World of AVATAR at Disney’s Animal Kingdom for our first “good” look at the Flight of Passage attraction where guests will fly on a Banshee, as well as the awesome scenery that will fill the planet.

In the video, Disney takes us inside the Flight of Passage ride, where we get some new information on this very secret new attraction.

To experience Pandora from the back of a Banshee, special goggles (the likes of which we have never seen before) have been developed. They look larger than goggles used at other attractions, but it appears that they will fit better over eyeglasses that guests might be wearing. You may also notice that the lenses are not as dark as other 3-D glasses.

Also, the pre-show experience will include a room where guests are matched to their AVATAR.

Outside of Flight of Passage, the preview also brought us all over the land. This was our first time seeing the actual pathways of the land as guests will and the area looks to be as highly themed as Disney promised it would be.

And of course, how could we not talk about the nighttime lighting?

Pandora: The World of AVATAR opens May 27th, 2017 at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park.

Well I can certainly say all of these previews and press have left me with an overwhelming sense of “meh, ok”.

Actually, that’s not a bad attitude to go into it with. Unless you’re not going to keep an open mind. I was not a fan of the movie, but I hope they real nail it with this new land. I’ll remain cautiously optimistic.

I get no sense of “meh, ok” what so ever. I’m ready to book my trip for opening weekend by the things I have seen. We enjoy Animal Kingdom so much for the atmosphere not really the attractions, and this looks absolutely amazing to grab a beer and just take it all in.

Just me, or from the exceptionally brief glimps that we get of the seats, does it seem like the seats are pretty readically different from this… ? http://wdwnt.com/blog/2017/02/breaking-leaked-image-reveals-ride-vehicle-avatar-flying-banshee-attraction-disneys-animal-kingdom/

You are fitted for your avatar before you enter, so maybe you sit on the first vehicle and are then transferred to your avatar and banshee

That ride seems so awesome, I just hope I can get my chicken daughter to try it.
