Hello. My name is Debbie, and I am a self-confessed Disney addict!  I have been visiting Walt Disney World property with my family, since it opened its doors almost 46 years ago, in 1971. My family has always resided in Georgia, which meant Florida was only a car ride away.

Meet Pandora’s Na’vi Shaman of Songs

The opening of Pandora – The World of Avatar is less than two weeks away!  Today we’re excited to give you a first look at the Na’vi Shaman of Songs; a character guests can spot within the Na’vi River Journey attraction.

Encountering the shaman is a highlight of this fun attraction, in which you will sail down a mysterious river hidden within a bioluminescent rainforest filled with glowing plants and fascinating creatures. The river journey culminates when Guests spot the shaman, a figure who has a deep connection to the life force of Pandora and celebrates that beautiful connection through her music.

The Na’vi Shaman of Songs is the most complicated Audio-Animatronics figure ever created by Walt Disney Imagineering. Get a closer look in the below video!

 

Pandora – The World of Avatar opens at Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park on May 27, 2017.
