PHOTOS – Pandora Cast costumes unveiled as new land sparks job creation

The Cast Member costumes for Pandora – The World of Avatar were on display to media today as Disney readies the new land at Animal Kingdom for guests. The costumes represented the different types of Cast you’ll find on Pandora.


Cast stationed in Pandora will have a brand new name tag featuring their hometown from Earth. Both the land name and ACE logo are also on the name tag. Alpha Centauri Expeditions, or ACE, is the eco-tour company that brings us to Pandora. It’s through their partnership with the Na’vi to help manage the human presence on Pandora that we are able to visit. Instead of Cast “earning their ears”, they will be guides in training. The Na’vi word for “student” or learner can be found on their tag too.

As part of the opening of Pandora – The World of Avatar, Disney has created 1,500 jobs. 800 construction jobs and 700 operational positions such as engineering, attraction hosts, food and beverage, and leadership positions are part of Animal Kingdom’s largest expansion ever!

Cast Members are the embodiment of the “Disney Difference”, and those working Pandora are receiving special training. In addition to training for their positions, Cast are learning the Na’vi language, environment, and way of life. They will act as an integral part of the immersive and interactive experiences of Pandora.

Pandora – The World of Avatar opens to guests on May 27, 2017.

  1. I question the Hawaiian-style overshirts as a design choice. it makes the whole ensemble look cheap and rather ‘touristy’. but tell me more about the plum jumpsuit/romper onesie underneath.
