This week some of the most compelling images we shared on the Disney Parks Blog were of these colorful banshees that guests will find when Pandora – The World of Avatar opens on May 27.


At the Rookery inside Windtraders, a Naturalist from Alpha Centauri Expeditions will assist a guest with choosing a banshee from among 10 different styles. Each interactive banshee includes three ranges of motion – mouth, head, and wings – that are controlled by hand. Guests can either display a banshee on their shoulder or cradle them in their arms.

  • The Banshees are sold out. Any idea when they will be back? Thank you.

  • When will Banshee’s be back in?

  • Yes I am also wondering when they are expected back in stock as we will be there in a couple of weeks and we’re much looking forward to this experience.

  • We were very lucky to get one of the last one’s. Was told not till September (but may get another shipment in a couple of weeks. This was on June 3rd) They are cute!

  • Checked first thing this morning as we leave tomorrow no banshees. Cm said they haven’t gotten a shipment all week. Very disappointed son!!
