Avatar Flight of Passage

Avatar Flight of Passage

Avatar Flight of Passage is one of Disney World’s newest and hottest rides and is located within Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

The Queue 

The wait for this virtual reality ride is usually one to three hours (sometimes longer). Although the queue moves quickly, it is quite a long journey! The line stops for 15-20 seconds at a time and then moves about 20 steps before stopping again.

As guests advance into the mountain, they travel through cave settings and scenes of the movie while anticipating the boarding area which is past the lab. There are dozens of amazing photo opportunities along the way and the jaw-dropping displays seem to make the wait shorter!

 

Pre-Flight

Following through the mountain and laboratory, riders arrive in the training area where they are prepared to receive a personal avatar and meet their own banshee! Everyone is checked for contamination and compatibility prior to being linked to an avatar.

Boarding

Boarding encompasses two rows of 8 guests each and all personal items are placed on a shelf upon entry. Sitting on a banshee is like straddling a motorcycle that feels like it is breathing! There is a tight safety strap and a brace is placed on the small of the back and legs for security. Although the other riders and banshees are visible, each person rides single and all the banshees face an impressively large screen ready for adventure!

Time to Fly!

Put on 3D glasses and soar alongside other banshees and avatars over beautiful waterfalls, whales and other sea creatures, monkeys, and herds of buffalo and horses as this visually stunning experience comes to life! The drops, spirals, and flights over water and through trees are very realistic. Be on the lookout for a spray while skimming the surface of a beach!

The ride has movement but it is not a roller coaster. Once the video has started, scared riders can close their eyes at any time.

Exit

True to Disney flair, guests exit the ride through a gift shop full of braided vines and nature. For a mere $65.00, guests can choose their very own banshee through a series of hand movements and sounds from the rookery. Awesome banshees ride on the shoulders of their proud owners throughout the park!

I do not love the Avatar movie but the ride definitely motivated me to watch it again. My family rated Avatar Flight of Passage a 10 out of 10 and even our non-riders were delighted to ride it over and over again!

 

Christopher Robin and the Silly-Old-Bear

Christopher Robin, Going Out The Door, Movie Review, Contest

This summer Disney released a new film version of a childhood favorite, Christopher Robin! This timeless classic is based on a story about Winnie-the-Pooh created by A.A. Milner and published in 1926.

Christopher Robin, Going Out The Door, Movie Review, Contest

“I always get to where I’m going by walking away from where I’ve been.”

I fell in love with the Winnie-the-Pooh stories when reading to my children in the early 80’s. Team Disney not only found a way to hang on to all that I love about that silly old bear but helped me find new meaning and understanding into the storyline. Pooh and friends always find a way to help others figure out who they are.

An “Ex-Pooh-berant” Christopher Robin

Visually this film was amazing! The colors had a sun-faded tone that was relaxing and comfortable. Even though the film was very much English it had a Cape Cod feel. It was like being wrapped up in a blanket after a day in the sun.

Deep in the hundred acre wood

This was a huge accomplishment to turn an animated cartoon about a stuffed animal into a live action film that not only makes you believe the story but makes you go home and believe any of the stuffed animals could start talking! I was caught by surprise that during the film other characters could hear the animals talk and see them as being real. Before this point, in my mind, they were only alive in Christopher Robins imagination. Pooh is real!!!!

Just a Smackerel of Honey

My only disappointment was the music. At a few points in the movie if you are really paying attention they include some familiar soundtrack. “The Most Wonderful Thing About Tiggers” was included and of course was adorable. I just wanted a little more of the familiar sounds like, “I’m Just a Little Black Rain Cloud” or “The Rain, Rain, Rain Came Down, Down, Down”. But, the saving grace musically for me was a new song by the 90-year-old Disney legend Richard Sherman. It was AMAZING!!!!!

Oh, Bother!

Christopher Robin is all about the feels, bring tissues. It’s comfortable and mesmerizing and you will laugh while you cry or cry while you laugh. As much as I loved the movie, the best part for me was after the credits! You will want to own this movie!!
