A few weeks ago, my fellow author Tom Smith shared a first look at retail MagicBands created for the opening of Pandora – The World of Avatar. These fun designs were a hit with guests visiting this exotic land at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Today, I’m delighted to share a look at two new retail MagicBands recently released at Windtraders on Pandora.
A teal MagicBand shows the Valley of Mo’ara at sunset. Casey Jones, Senior Character Artist with Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media Creative Group, created this artwork as part of a badge collection. This artwork is also featured on a luggage tag and a super soft Raglan tee.
The gorgeous bioluminescent world of Pandora at night is showcased on a second blue MagicBand. The artwork was created by Dylan Cole, the Co-Production Designer for the upcoming ‘Avatar’ motion picture sequels, and is featured on a variety of products designed especially for Pandora including accessories and home goods.
One of my favorite details for this MagicBand is its decorative box, which has a textured matte finish with more of Dylan’s artwork on the side.
Both limited edition MagicBands have edition sizes of 5,000 each.
With the innovation of MagicBand 2, guests can use these MagicBands and others to unlock the magic of a Disney vacation – from skipping the front desk and going directly to your resort room, effortless theme-park entry, to FastPass+ redemption and Disney PhotoPass association.
