New Cast Member Costumes for Pandora – The World of Avatar Coming to DAK

New cast member costumes for Pandora were previewed this week.

There’s something about the look of these costumes that vaguely looks like a combination of the Spaceship Earth cast member costumes at Epcot and the Tomorrowland costumes at the Magic Kingdom!

New name tags for all cast members working in Pandora.

There are three groups residing in Pandora: Alpha Centauri Expeditions, Scientists from the Pandora Conservation Initiative, and EXPAT Community.

Each of these groups have specific roles in Pandora and each will have special costumes that reinforce those roles for guests.

Welcome to the World of Avatar!

This new land will transport guests to the visually stunning world of Pandora. Here, guests will wonder at floating mountains and bioluminescent plants, and can join the Na’vi on two excursions that take adventure to the next level.

Na’vi River Journey

First, the family friendly Na’vi River Journey will send guests through a bioluminescent rainforest. (Similar to the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at MK.)

Cool photo pass op!

The journey ends with an unforgettable encounter with a Na’vi Shaman, a figure who has a deep connection to the life force of Pandora.

Flight of Passage! Soaring on the back of a banshee.  This will be one crazy simulator ride!!!

Second, Avatar Flight of Passage will offer guests the jaw-dropping experience of exploring the world of Pandora atop a Banshee. (The banshee flight simulator is similar ride to Soarin’ Around the World ride at Epcot.) The new ride system will be “considerably more thrilling” than the current Soarin’ attraction. Guests will “climb up the mountains of Pandora” in the queue for the ride before entering the show building where they will ‘take off and fly’, literally launching off the cliffs on a Banshee.

We love DAK and can’t wait for Pandora to open next month!

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.

We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney. Available now at in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
