    Is the Create Your Own Avatar Action Figure at ACE Avatar Maker inside Windtraders (Pandora) still available? If yes, how much time should I plan to do this and would you recommend it for a tween boy?

    Kaltxì, Alexandra! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I hEAR your son, or' itan as they say in Na' vi, is interested in creating a truly unique souven-EAR at the ACE Avatar Maker inside Windtraders!  I think this otherworldly experience would be perfect for any tween or teen who has ever wondered what they'd look like as a human /Na' vi hybrid. 

    Reservations are required and can be made on a first-come, first-serve basis inside of Windtraders. When it is your turn, an Alpha Centauri Expedition Scan Technician will use a facial capture scanner to enter your profile into the Hybrid Digitizing System. After the scans are complete, guests get to choose their Avatar's body type, eye color, facial striping pattern, and hairstyle (all Avatars will have black hair because the Na' vi gene for dark hair is dominant). These steps take about 10-15 minutes. Then, you are handed a keepsake ACE identification card, which is used later to retrieve your figure. After about an hour, your Avatar will be ready to go (note that Walt Disney World Resort Hotel merchandise delivery is not available for this experience since the reveal is a big part of the whole process).  If you wish, you can purchase accessories for your Avatar in the shop before leaving.

    While waiting, I highly recommend stopping the Pongu Pongu drink stand next door for a Pongu Lumpia, which is a fried spring roll filled with pineapples and cream cheese sprinkled with sugar. My 11-year-old son is partial to the Night Blossom beverage that he begrudgingly shares with me from time to time. And of course, no day at Pandora would be complete without a ride on the back of an Ikran on Avatar Flight of Passage!

    Sivako, Alexandra!
