Imagineer Podcast

Avatar Flight of Passage (Pandora—World of Avatar)

January 15, 2022

Avatar Flight of Passage might be the most thrilling and immersive attraction Disney's Imagineers have ever created. It also happens to be one of the highest rated Disney attractions in the world. Opening in 2017 at Disney's Animal Kingdom, Flight of Passage is the signature E-ticket attraction in Pandora—World of Avatar. The Imagineering details, story, and technology for this ride are so impressive that I knew I had to devote an entire episode to discussing what makes this attraction so remarkable.

In this podcast episode, I discuss the backstory of Pandora and Avatar Flight of Passage, its connections to the film, story-driven details, ride design, technology, and memorable moments. I also feature a binaural audio recording of the ride and discuss why so many Disney fans consider it to be not only a thrilling and emotional attraction but also a spiritual one.
