Guests hiking through the Valley of Mo’ara in Pandora – The World of Avatar will discover a world like no other that brims with beautiful plant life – which is what inspired our new Night Blossom banshee which flies into The Rookery at Windtraders today!

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.

Guests who connect with banshees at The Rookery are encouraged 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”).

Along with this exciting new release, we’re pleased to announce Annual Passholders can now receive a 20% discount and Disney Vacation Club members can receive a 20% on all banshee purchases. Disney Visa Cardmembers also receive 10% off select merchandise purchases of $50 or more at Windtraders when using a Disney Visa Card.
