Thanks. It's always fun to shoot at Animal Kingdom because the animals always make it different.

Level of detail in Flight of Passage queue is CRAZY! The ride is by far the best media-based attraction I've done!

The visuals

But is the story easy to follow? Does it redeem the movie's story at all?

Also, is that avatar in a tank in the flight of passage queue animatronic, a projection, or other?

This is all so amazing looking! I am wondering how the land resonates with people who never saw or didn't really care for Avatar.

Pandora looks like one of the best things Disney has ever made! Thank you for the pictures and video!

Out of curiosity, how exactly does Flight of Passage work? Is it VR, or more like Soarin' but with 3D glasses in addition to the screen?

YES to the Giant Monkey pushing the rock! :smile:

YES to some wonderful photos, from every part of the park!

And YES to an absolutely fantastic look at an entirely new "land" for Disney.
This is like the organic "alien nature" response to Universal and it's Potter-Verse.

I love it! Thanks for the great tour of AK. The night shots are awesome, too!

I actually never saw the movie nor do I care about it. That being said, I felt like that didn't impact anything at all. This could have been an "original IP land" as far as I'm aware and I was sold on it just fine if I think about it that way!
