Thanks for info. Now I know now much expensive are that stuff - almost at level that I expected. Only  :ikran::toruk: are cheaper.
Sadly they not listed all items available at local store like ears, wigs, socks and whole spectrum of glowing items.


Here are new video, this time at night. That explains why they upload it few hours later. Wish to be here just for single night.

Tutorial how to create customized Na'vi dolls:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SALcmkkwPPs?a&b


Another opening (day):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fBx6IAsJo5Q?a&b


Special night show:


Another bioluminescent videos:


Cosplay (face painting) probably available only for children but who know?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zpp-uSpEu-o?a&b


Ride on ikrans  :o (looks like filmed w/o 3D glasses):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMxeDMPvSnI?a&b


And few clips about ikran toys:
Looks like ikran movement are controlled via 4-6 bowden cables, batteries are required only for sound chip. It should be extremely easy to hack this thing, add servos and make animatronic ikran.
I want one or two ikrans for tests. How much cost shipping from US to Poland?


And BEWARE, this video may destroy a lot of magic around Pandora:

And the sad part.
First as I mentioned at SB: It looks like Disney doesn't have license for RDA logo. Instead they invent ACE logo - Alpha Centauri Expedition. I would like to see guardians and other staff dressed as RDA soldiers. But sadly no RDA at all  :-\ Even menu at canteen have ACE logo.
Next I found only 2 Na'vi at river and one avatar inside tank at Ikran flight. No stuff dressed as Na'vi (that's logical, size difference may destroy whole effect) and no other 1:1 Na'vi figures outside. I expected a lot more blue here.



P.S. Three videos from Ikran flight. First: manual for the seats (if anyone interested). Next: missing elements between 'theory of operation' and real ride. It may be interesting only for geeks.

Yeah, it's true. Original RDA logo would be better here.

Today video check: one more night shool and a lot of peoples waiting. Hope most of them will go inside.

BTW, I found single RDA logo near AMP. Look at last video between 4:52 and 5:06. It seems like Disney have license but decide to promote their own brand.

I am SO excited for this July!!! I have been doing nothing but been watching videos on Pandora for days  ;D I just can't contain my excitement. I have the entire day planned and what I'm gonna buy too.  ;D Though I'm still curious about the whole 'Customized Avatar doll"- like does it actually resemble the person they scanned or are they just saying it does? Cause if it does actually resemble the person, I plan to get one but if it's just a scam I'll pass. - but literally, I'm gonna at least spend 150$ at the gift shop.  ;D

*suddenly appears out of nowhere* Did someone ask for a lore explaination? No?  :-\ Too bad, you're all getting one anyways (but it's nothing that you can't also find on the wonderful Avatar Wiki)!

The Pandora attraction takes place a generation after the movie series. The RDA are gone from the planet and human-Na'vi relationships have improved. An eco-tour group, Alpha Centauri Expeditions has worked out an deal with the Na'vi to arrange and promote tourism on the moon. That's why you see all of their stuff everywhere. There is still significant RDA presence in the attraction. You can find an AMP outside the Pongu Pongu drink stand, a downed Samson helicopter, heck, the bridge you cross to get into Pandora is an RDA built bridge! Most of the Flight of Passage queue takes place in an old RDA mining facility that's now the new home of the Avatar Program. The Sat'uli Canteen is an old RDA canteen and Windtraders was an old RDA facility too, now reclaimed by nature.

And yes, Disney DOES have Lightstorm's permission to use the RDA logo, it shows up plenty of times in the Flight of Passage queue and a few other scattered appearances around the land. The RDA is also mentioned by name in the Flight of Passage pre-show, as their environmentally unsafe practices have lead to ecosystem damage that the Pandora Conservation Initiative is trying to fix.

It's funny that you theorized that Alpha Centauri Expeditions showing up more in the land instead of RDA was Disney wanting to promote their own brand more...when it comes to actual Disney branding, Pandora intentionally has less of it for storyline/immersion reasons, with a few exceptions. That's part of why Alpha Centauri Expeditions was created, since it makes more sense for a fictional organization tied into the Avatar lore to be highly promoting themselves on the moon of Pandora instead of Disney themselves.

I agree that not having actual Na'vi characters walking around breaks immersion. (It's explained that you don't see the Na'vi walking around the Valley of Mo'ara area that the land takes place in is used mostly for human tourism thanks to the ACE treaty that they signed with the Na'vi. Personally, I think that's really stretching suspension of disbelief, but I understand why Disney had to do it.) I wonder if Disney has something up their sleeve, since they've done surveys asking if people want to see a Jake and Neytiri meet and greet at the park. Makes no sense for storyline timeline reasons, but there's nothing stopping them from making new Na'vi characters. Introducing them once the hype dies down would make sense, less chance of a bottleneck caused by everyone standing still in awe at 10 foot tall blue aliens walking around.  ;D

Though I'm still curious about the whole 'Customized Avatar doll"- like does it actually resemble the person they scanned or are they just saying it does? Cause if it does actually resemble the person, I plan to get one but if it's just a scam I'll pass.

The facial scan picks up your basic facial structure, but it won't be a 1:1 resemblance. You can pick from a select number of body types, eye colors, and hair, as well as accessories.

Irayo for the info! It all makes sense now  :) .. and yeah, I can totally see why they don't have any na'vi actors since they're 1.) 10 feet tall (2.) Makeup would be a pain for the actors if makeup artists went all out in transforming the actors into realistic na'vi. Though, I'm curious to see how it would work if they brought out actors.
  Like what you said, maybe when the crowd dubs down in a couple months/years they might do so. Either way, the attraction is amazing and I've only heard positive comments about the attraction and how it's one of Disney's best.
   And I knew that you could change eye color and Na'vi patterns and stuff like that on the figurine, but I was just curious if it actually resembles the person they scan. I might have to pass on that one, but who knows.  :-\

Back to topic, thanks for HQ video from river of light. That video shows a lot details and explains me few things.



And here are two new founds:

Ears, tail and face painting:

Probably first video from river of lights - the fast pass entrance:

EDIT:
And I found few videos showing storm over Pandora park. Funny is that peoples think that rain is real, but lightnings and thunders are made by Disney  ;D

This makeup looks OK and should be legal on Pandora. Hope it's legal.

They don't let people cosplay to Disney and I can understand why; It would ruin the magic for the audience in different ways. Though you can get your face painted like the Na'vi and other Pandora-inspired designs at "Colors of Mo'ara".  :)

I don't really know what you mean by ruin the magic and I don't really understand why.  Unless we're talking about legit loincloth + bodypaint players.  People have varying opinions on this.  In the US, generally people have a big thing against public nudity or near-nudity (and body paint does not count as clothing).
