Disney Releases Commemorative Merchandise To Celebrate Opening Day of Pandora – The World of Avatar

Pandora – The World of Avatar officially opens at Disney’s Animal Kingdom today. If you’ll be joining thousands of other fans on this exciting opening day, Disney is offering several commemorative products to remember your trip to this exotic new land. These products will be released at Windtraders at Pandora, with select products also being offered in Discovery Trading Company at Discovery Island.

“We love commemorating official openings with unique products that capture a moment in time,” exclaimed Cathy Dawson, event merchandise product developer with Disney Parks. “For an epic new land like Pandora – The World of Avatar, we wanted our guests to remember their visit for the grand opening on May 27. They will find t-shirts for adults and kids, a water bottle, and a hat. Each of these items include the opening date, and feature artwork originally created by Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media Creative Group. It is such an exciting time to celebrate!”

Disney pin collectors visiting on May 27 will be delighted to find a five-pin, limited edition boxed set and a limited edition opening day pin.

Part of Disney’s Countdown to Pandora collection, the five-pin set features beautiful travel posters from Alpha Centauri Expeditions, the exclusive provider of tours to Pandora. Dylan Cole, Co-Production Designer for the upcoming “Avatar” motion picture sequels, provided the artwork for this set that has an edition size of 250.

Dylan’s gorgeous artwork of Pandora at night can be found on the individual limited edition pin. This pin will have an edition size of 5,000. 

There are also three Pandora inspired MagicBands being released for opening day. The limited edition purple MagicBand includes Dylan’s bioluminescent artwork, and will have an edition size of 2,000. Guests will also find a blue, open edition retail MagicBand which complements other Na’vi-inspired products.

For Annual Passholders, there’s a teal limited edition MagicBand that also contains the phrase “I traveled to Pandora on May 27, 2017.” It will have an edition size of 5,000.

Guests may also find select items for the grand opening in the Disney Parks section of DisneyStore.com according to Meredith Gaiser, marketing manager with Disney Parks and Resorts Digital.

“We will be offering three commemorative t-shirts online from May 24 to June 7. These items are very similar to the shirts being carried at Disney’s Animal Kingdom for the opening. It’s a fun way for a guest to celebrate the opening while preparing for a future visit to Pandora.”

Meredith also shared that select products from Pandora – The World of Avatar will be found on the Shop Disney Parks app.
