Visitors to Pandora – The World of Avatar this Summer will definitely want to set aside some time to check out Windtraders, the amazing Avatar-themed retail outlet. What you’ll find is more than just a shop but an exciting and immersive experience.
A huge focal point of Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Pandora is a connection to the land/environment and you’ll find it in all of the fantastic details of this shop. From animal plush toys, glowing apparel, as well as drums and other toys that appear to be made by local Na’vi merchants, Windtraders is an absolute treasure trove of unique Pandora-themed goodies.
Guests even have the option to bring home glowing vein pods, or their own helicordian plant. However, the real star of the Windtraders merchandising line-up is the Banshee Rookery. Its home to the much-loved flying creatures that captured the imaginations of kids young and old in the original Avatar film. Here for the price of $50 guests are able to choose their own Banshees to care for. Visitors will work alongside a Cast Member who will help each guest select a banshee that’s just right for them. They then take the Banshee Pledge before walking away with their new pet.
There are a wide range of Pandora themed park essentials to chose from including t-shirts, lanyards and shopping bags. In a tribute to the Na’vi, guests can also purchase ears, tails, hooded jackets and cultural items that allow them to dress up as the blue indigenous creatures that call Pandora home.
There’s also a Bead Bar where visitors can design personalized Na’vi necklaces using an eclectic array of beads and feathers.
Those wanting to speak like a Na’vi will also find pocket language translators available. These devices use a series of cards to translate common English words into their Na’vi counterparts. Each translator kit comes with 15 cards, and more are available for purchase. So not only will you have an amazing time at Pandora but you can walk away fluent in the Na’vi language.
In another treat that’s perfect for Avatar-lovers, guests can even become their own avatars at the Ace Avatar Maker which is also be found on the premises. Using a digital process, cast members will take an image of your likeness and add it to a custom action figure, creating your every own replica avatar. Definitely something to wow your friends.
With all of these exciting options available, Windtraders is definitely a destination it itself. Be sure to stop by during your next visit and see what sort of treasures you can uncover.
