    When will the shoulder banshees be available? Will they also be available on line or only in the store?

    Kaltxi, Jacqueline! The Pandoran Ikran, or Banshees as we call them, are magical creatures that live high in the floating mountains of Pandora. When you visit the land through a portal in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, you’ll find baby Banshees roosting in the Rookery inside Windtraders. I adopted my very own blue Banshee baby in May when the land opened to guests, courtesy of ACE travel!

    Many of the items available at Windtraders are exclusive to that park of Disney’s Animal Kingdom and cannot be purchased (or adopted!) elsewhere. This is true for the Banshees from the Rookery. You may find other small versions on sticks, plushies, etc. available on the Shop Disney Parks Mobile App, but the full size shoulder Banshees will only be available in store. The adoptable creatures were so incredibly popular with visiting guests that they sold out very quickly, and have not been able to hatch enough eggs to meet demand. When the hatchlings are available, they will be moved to the Rookery immediately for adoption.

    I hope you will be able to visit Windtraders early and often during your vacation are able to adopt one of the BAnshees! I recommend purchasing the perch, as I skipped out on that element and wish I had the perfect place for my Banshee, who I named “Madame Mim,” to sit! Let me know what else I might be able to help you with, and as the Na’vi say, “SIVAKO!” ~ Lindsey P.
