Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom has been experiencing some technical difficulties on its two attractions that have led to emergency evacuations for two days in a row.
Pandora’s Flight of Passage and Na’vi River Journey both evacuated the ride and queue on two separate incidents yesterday. And another evacuation took place this morning.
A Disney spokesperson stated the incidents were due to a “precautionary response to a fire alarm sensor activating”.
Many guests turned to social media to vent their frustrations, some waiting 2-3 hours to experience the attraction only to be turned away with no FastPass compensation.
