Disney announced today that Pandora - The World of Avatar, the new expansion to Disney's Animal Kingdom, will open on May 27.
While this is obviously exciting news, it also means Memorial Day weekend will be even worse than usual. Here are some things to keep in mind if you want to see Pandora as quickly as possible (as we certainly do):
1. Check the deals
Disney has two active deals, the Magic Together and Fun & Sun deals that are worth looking into ASAP. Magic Together must be booked by February 26, and Fun & Sun by March 30. Both cover dates into the very beginning of June.
2. Consider booking your flights with miles or flying low-cost
Memorial Day weekend and summer can have very pricey flights. American, for example, has some Economy SAaver availability from O'Hare to MCO around Memorial Day. If you're not going to use miles, consider whether you can fly low-cost. If you're planning a quick weekend getaway, you might not need even pay for a carry-on!
3. Plan your tickets carefully
It is safe to assume you will need an entire day, if not two, to experience Animal Kingdom. The park is likely going to be too crowded to experience in a single day. Animal Kingdom was already out favorite park - you can definitely fill a day with it now.
We'll be looking to get there some weekend in June, so look out for our updates then!
