Specialty Drinks of Pandora: The World of Avatar


There are a lot of interesting beverages coming to Pandora: The World of Avatar at Animal Kingdom. There are two places to whet your whistle in Pandora: the Satu’li Canteen and Pongu Pongu.

At the Satu’li Canteen, a fast-casual eatery, try the non-alcoholic Pandoran Sunrise, a mix of tropical juices and Powerade Melon. This drink can be purchased with or without a souvenir Satu'li Canteen Flute Flask. If you prefer wine, try Banshee, available in Chardonnay or Pinot Noir. The wine is from a small Napa Valley winery and will be served by the glass.

Dreamwalker Sangria, Banshee Wines, Pandoran Sunrise, Hawkes' Grog Ale, Mo'ara High Country Ale

For something unique, there's the Dreamwalker Sangria, made a lovely shade of blue with a splash of Blue CuraƧao. Two ales round out the menu: Hawkes' Grog Ale, green in color with a fruity hops flavor and notes of apricot, peach, and a hint of wheat, and Mo'ara High Country Ale, a malty amber ale with notes of caramel, toffee and nuts. The ales are also available from Pongu Pongu.

Night Blossom and Mo'ara Frozen Margarita

Next door is Pongu Pongu, the drink station run by an expat who fell in love with Pandora, and chose never to leave. Here you can try the nonalcoholic Night Blossom, a mix of limeade with apple and desert pear flavors topped with passion fruit popping boba balls. The drink can be purchased with or without a souvenir Pongu Pongu mug made "bioluminescent" with a glowcube. For the adventurous, try the Mo'ara Frozen Margarita featuring Sauza Commemorativo Anejo Tequila with strawberry and blood orange flavors, topped with strawberry popping boba balls. It will also be available in the Pongu Pongu mug.

Which drink are you looking forward to trying? I cant wait to taste the Night Blossom. Pandora: The World of Avatar opens on May 27.
