Opening day crowds at Pandora - The World of Avatar

The much anticipated, Pandora - The World of Avatar, officially opened to all guests earlier today at Disney's Animal Kingdom.

Extra Magic Hour guests were allowed into the park at 7am, and by 8am, Pandora was already at capacity. Resort guests were held on the right side of the Oasis, and day guests joined a long queue on the left side of the Oasis alongside the Rainforest Cafe secondary entrance.

The line extended all the way to the Pandora bridge, next to Tiffins.

Once inside Pandora, guests faced packed walkways, and long waits for attractions.

Avatar Flight of Passage quickly became a 4 hour wait.

Na'vi River Journey hovered around the 2 hour mark.

Guests with FastPass reservations were able to bypass the wait, and join a much smaller queue near to the Pandora bridge by Tiffins.

Waits for the always popular opening day merchandise were around 90 minutes at most stores.

Although extremely busy, the park has not yet reached any phase closing as of midday, and the park is open to all guests. At 12:30pm, the wait to enter Pandora remained around 60 minutes.

Here is a walk around video showing the waits both inside and outside of Pandora.
