Now that Pandora – The World of Avatar is officially open at Disney’s Animal Kingdom guests have the chance to create a truly unique memento at ACE Avatar Maker inside Windtraders. When guests ride the Avatar Flight of Passage attraction they are connected with an avatar, the new ACE Avatar Maker allows guests to see what they actually look like as a human/Na’vi hybrid.
To create the ACE Avatar Maker guests step into a futuristic transformation booth at Windtraders. They are greeted by an Alpha Centauri Expedition Scan Technician who uses a state-of-the-art, facial capture scanner to enter data into the Hybrid Digitizing System.
After an image is captured, guests select their avatar’s body style from four different choices. Both youth and adult sizes are offered. They also choose eye color, facial striping pattern, and hairstyle.
Throughout the experience, the technician shares interesting details about the Na’vi. For example, Na’vi naturally have yellow eyes; or the Na’vi gene for dark hair is so strong that it is always dominant in the creation of an avatar.
Once the customization process is completed, guests receive an ACE identification tag. This keepsake card is used about 30 minutes later at the ACE Avatar Maker Fabricator inside Windtraders where guests receive their completed action figures. There are also four accessory sets available that can be used with the poseable action figures.
Reservations are required for this experience, and can be made on a first-come, first-serve basis inside Windtraders, the cost is $79.99.
