Today we now know exactly how tall you will need to be to ride both Flight of Passage and Na’vi River Journey.

Flight of Passage Height Requirements


As Flight of Passage is Avatar’s thrill ride it has a 44″ minimum height requirement. This puts it alongside Expedition Everest, Mission Space and Space Mountain though 4 inches more than the attraction that everyone seems to be comparing this to, Soarin.

I suspect the reason for this is simple, different attraction vehicle (reportedly seating just two guests) and more intense!

Here’s how Disney describe Flight of Passage on their website:

Get a banshee’s-eye view of the beauty and grandeur of Pandora on a rite of passage you won’t soon forget!

Deep in the heart of the Valley of Mo’ara, discover Avatar Flight of Passage—an all-new expedition that lets interstellar explorers like you climb atop a mountain banshee for a breathtaking, first-person flight over the moon’s incredible landscape.

Na’vi River Journey Height Requirements

Those disappointed with the height requirements of Flight of Passage will be pleased to hear that Na’vi River Journey has no such requirement, anyone is free to ride!

Disney describes the River Journey as a family-friendly adventure ans go on to say:

Glide down a gentle, mysterious river and feel a sense of wonder as the full beauty of Pandora reveals itself. Located within the Valley of Mo’ara, Na’vi River Journey offers explorers an experience that has to be seen—and heard—to be believed!

As we edge ever closer to May, Disney continue to release more and more details on the new land and what guests can expect when it opens on May 27th, more details as soon as we see them.

Are you looking forward to Pandora?
