New Night Blossom Banshee Comings to Pandora – The World of Avatar at Walt Disney World

We can’t get enough of the banshees in Pandora – The World of Avatar!  Pandora – The World of Avatar is a themed land within Disney’s Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World. We are excited to learn about another new banshee coming to The Rookery at Windtraders!  This one is the Night Blossom banshee, which is inspired by the beautiful plant life throughout Pandora.  Per Disney Parks Blog, “Bathed in shades of purple, fuchsia, green and orange, this new banshee joins a colorful flock of banshees that guests can connect with during their visit. It will contain authentic sounds and includes three ranges of motion – mouth, head, and wings – that are controlled by hand.”

In a great nod to Disney’s mission for conservation efforts, guests who connect with one of the banshees are encourages to make a pledge to  respect and protect the natural world on Pandora and back home on Earth.  Upon seeing other banshee keepers, guests should use the traditional Na’vi phrase of greeting and respect, “Oel Ngati Kameie” (“I See You”).

If you are an Annual Passholder or Disney Vacation Club Member, then we have great news for you!  Annual Passholders are eligible to receive a 20% discount on banshee purchases, while Disney Vacation Club Members are eligible to receive 10% off.  Disney Visa Card Members can also receive 10% of select merchandise when spending $50 or more at Windtraders, as long as they use their Disney Visa Card.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
