Dining in Pandora: The World of Avatar

The Satu’li Canteen is the main restaurant in Pandora: The World of Avatar. Here, dishes are based on the healthful bounty of Pandora and feature wholesome grains and fresh veggies. The dining room, which was once the main message hall of the Resources Development Administration, has been transformed by Alpha Centauri Expeditions into a museum-like space. The space is decorated with colorful Na'vi items such as handwoven tapestries, natural elements, and cooking tools.

The menu at this fast-casual location is intriguing, with bowls that allow diners to customize their meal. You start with either quinoa and vegetable salad, red and sweet potato hash, mixed whole grains and rice, or romaine and kale salad. Next, add protein, either wood-grilled chicken, slow-roasted beef, sustainable fish, or chili-spiced fried tofu. Then, top it off with your choice of sauce: charred onion chimichurri, black bean vinaigrette, or creamy herb dressing.

The menu also offers steamed "pods", bao buns filled with cheeseburger or vegetable curry and served with root vegetable chips and crunchy vegetable slaw. It all sounds delicious.

For kids, there's grilled chicken, beef, fish, or tofu with greens or rice, a hot dog with a Parker House bun, a cheese quesadilla, or steamed cheeseburger "pod".

This will also be the first location to offer Mobile Order. This will allow guests to order meals on-the-go with the My Disney Experience app. You can select menu items, customize your order, and pre-pay for your meal. When you arrive at the restaurant, tap the "I'm here" button in the app and avoid the queue. You will receive an alert when your meal is ready and can pick it up at the designated window. Other fast-casual and quick-service restaurants will begin to offer Mobile Order later this year.
