Avatar: Flight of Passage is a 3D augmented reality flying simulator attraction within Pandora: The World of Avatar that opened at Disney's Animal Kingdom on May 27, 2017. The attraction allows guests to take flight on a mountain Banshee and soar across the landscape of Pandora.[1]


In the attraction's storyline, the humans and Na'vi are attempting to restore the banshee population to natural levels. The Alpha Centauri Expeditions (ACE) has reactivated the avatar program as a method of conducting research, and allows guests to sync with an avatar to fly on a banshee to partake in the Na'vi's tribal coming-of-age tradition.[2]

Set within the remains of a Resources Development Administration facility, the attraction invites guests into the Alpha Centauri Expeditions lab where guests are linked to an "avatar" and fly aboard a banshee across the Valley of Mo'ara.[3]



  • The only Animatronic is a developing Na'vi Avatar and is present in the queue line.
  • The ride's queue is one of the longest queue lines at Disney World.
  • Beer cans can be seen strewn about as remnants of the original mining facility.
