The straw sun hat is rather understated compared to many items you might find themed to “Avatar.”

The words from the film “Water connects all things” are embroidered onto the front brim of the hat.

A small tag with the “Avatar” franchise logo is also on the edge of the hat brim.

A strap hangs on the back to help keep the hat secure in the wind, but no design is present anywhere else around the sun hat.

The underside features the strap and the upside-down embroidery, but again no other special designs or artwork.

We found this “Avatar” sun hat at Island Mercantile in Discovery Island at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Will you connect with the way of water this summer? Let us know in the comments below!

Pandora — The World of Avatar

Pandora — The World of Avatar opened in Disney’s Animal Kingdom in May 2017 and has remained one of the most popular areas in all of Walt Disney World ever since.

The land is beautiful and incredibly immersive. From the moment you walk through the pathway, you will feel as if you were transported directly to the Valley of Mo’ara. Pandora is also home to two very popular rides: Avatar: Flight of Passage and Na’vi River Journey.

Avatar: Flight of Passage is one of the most popular rides on property. It is an immersive, 3D flying simulator ride where guests can ride atop a native mountain Banshee and soar over the beautiful landscape of Pandora. It is a rite of passage among the Na’vi, which are natives of Pandora, to ride atop a Banshee, so that is where the ride got its name.

Na’vi River Journey is a dark ride that sends guests on a relaxing boat ride through the Kasvapan River of Pandora. The ride is filled with bioluminescent plants and animals native to Pandora. It also features one of the best animatronics on Disney property, the Shaman of Song.

There are plenty of things to see and do in Pandora — The World of Avatar. In fact, due to the overwhelming popularity of the Pandora in Walt Disney World, it was just announced that Disneyland would be getting their very own Pandora experience soon as well!
