Increasing reports on social media are saying that Avatar Flight of Passage and Na’vi River Journey in Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom were both evacuated and have been temporarily closed due to a triggered fire alarm signal throughout the attractions. Both attractions are housed in the same show building, which is one massive structure behind the floating mountains of Pandora.

No smoke or fire was reported, which is why mentions of the evacuation have reported that the process of emptying the ride queues and buildings wasn’t rushed.
We were evacuated because of an apparent fire. There was no rush to get everyone out though so idk

Guests who were in line for the attraction and who were evacuated have reported receiving FastPasses from Guest Relations.

While it appears that the attractions have been down for nearly an hour now, no re-opening time has been disclosed by @WDWToday, instead advising guests to continue checking My Disney Experience. Disney hopes to have both rides back up shortly, especially given the Spring Break crowds.
@WDWToday do you know when flight of passage and na’vi river journey will reopen today at DAK?

This is far from the first time fire alarms have been triggered at these attractions, as it has happened on multiple occasions.
