Here's a clip showing a POV and movement of Flight of Passage!

It's crazy how much the ride moves!

Some good close-up images of the ride vehicles for Flight of Passage have been posted on Twitter courtesy of Clint Gamache (formerly ThrillGeek).

It's intereresting that vehicles that remind me of Tron at Shanghai DL are being installed at Animal Kingdom! I have seen the new Avatar land though so they fit in well with the story.

I wouldn't expect that it was intentional. Both attractions involve straddling the vehicle (a Motorbike and Banshee) so it's not unexpected! :)

I think it must be the light up seats that make me think of Tron!

Pandora has soft opened, with Flight of Passage reporting queues of around 45 minutes (as of just under an hour ago)!

Fantastic pictures from Walt Disney World News Today on Twitter:

5 hours today! It's certainly proving popular, and everything I've heard so far is positive. :)

My bad, most of what I've heard so far is positive. ;)

From what I understand, most of the complaints refer to the length of Na'vi River Journey and the existence of only one AA, no doubt worsened by the fact that most people so far have waited several hours per ride.

Obviously, I've never been out to experience the area myself, but most of what I've seen makes what is on offer look impressive, even if there could be more of it in multiple places. Whether or not it's worth the wait of five years of construction and five hours in a queue on the day is debateable, but the quality of what's there looks high. :)

FOP, from all the reviews, has been seen to be a fantastic ride (one of the best screen rides) but there have been some people calling it Soarin 2.0. However, NRJ seems to be seen as a beautiful attraction, that has received criticism for the short length and being a but too boring for them.
