A unique shopping experience will be available for guests visiting Pandora when it opens on May 27th. Meant to be a tie-in to the new Animal Kingdom attraction “Flight of Passage“, the Banshee Connect experience allows guests to actually purchase and take home their very own mountain banshee.
When guests enter Windtraders, Pandora’s souvenir shop, they can be matched with their own banshee. These colorful mini-robotic banshees rest on your shoulder and are controlled by a leash. The leash wraps around the guest’s waist and allows the wearer to command the banshee to open its mouth, flap its wings, or even give a tiny howl.
Visitors to Pandora will be able to bond with, and purchase a banshee for $49.95.
Cast members are also quick to politely correct guests. These are not baby banshees. These take-home banshees are in fact scale-models to help conservationists study the creature.
Once you have bonded with your banshee a cast members at Windtraders will have you repeat a banshee pledge to seal the bond. You’ll also get a quick lesson on saying “I See You” in the Na’vi language.
