Before Pandora – The World of Avatar opened at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, there was a lot of excitement because of the two new rides. Once the new land started to welcome visitors, many found a great surprise that had nothing to do with climbing on the back of a banshee. Satu’li Canteen offers a unique and flavorful menu in fun surroundings. Here are eight things that you will love about this counter service restaurant.
8. Mobile Ordering
The lines for the two rides at Pandora grow long quickly, so the last thing that you want to do is to stand in another line when you’re hungry. Try Mobile Ordering instead. Make sure you have the My Disney Experience App, and then go to the Order Food option. Place your order when you’re in line for Avatar Flight of Passage, then when you get off just hit “I’m Here, Prepare My Order”. Your food will be prepared immediately, and you’ll pick it up at the Mobile Ordering window. It’s one less line that you’ll have to face.
If you don’t like the amount of trash that accumulates in most counter service restaurants, you’ll like Satu’li Canteen. There is a lot less waste. You’ll dine on real plates, use real utensils, and you don’t even have to worry about plastic straws, which are bad for the animals in the park. You’ll be surprised by how little trash you have after your meal.
6. Plenty of Seating
Satu’li Canteen has a decent amount of indoor seating, which you’ll like on a hot day in the middle of the summer. If the temperature is more moderate, there are also plenty of tables outside in front of the restaurant. Even though there are a decent amount of tables both indoors and outdoors, it can be hard to find a seat at traditional meal times on a crowded day, so you might want to eat either early or late.

At Satu’li Canteen, it’s easy to feel like you have traveled light years away and are dining in the Valley of Mo’ara. The little details are easy to miss, things like a Na’vi Mixing Pot or pictures of the Na’vi on the walls near where you order. Take a minute or two to appreciate the attention to detail, both big and small. The restaurant looks incredible.
If you have a sweet tooth, you will want to try one of the two dessert options. Chocolate Cake doesn’t sound all that fancy, but when you add a layer of cookie and then banana cream topping it becomes something special. Blueberry Cream Cheese Mousse is served with passion fruit curd. The dish looks like it could have been created by a different culture across the galaxy, but the taste is the real star.
The menu at Satu’li Canteen is creative, if you’re looking for pizza head to Pizzafari on Discovery Island. Instead, at Satu’li Canteen you’ll find Pods. They come in two varieties; Cheeseburger and Vegetable Steamed Curry. The Pods are round, have dough on the outside and a generous amount of filling on the inside. They are served with vegetable slaw and vegetable chips on the side. If you want to eat like the Na’vi, this could be a good choice.
2. Themed Beverages
If you’re of age and you like unique alcoholic beverages, you will want to check out the options at Satu’li Canteen. You’ll find items such as Banshee Pinot Noir, Mo’ara High County Ale, and Dreamwalker Sangria. If you don’t want alcohol try Pandoran Sunrise. Order it in a Na’vi Flute Cup for a fun souvenir.
Arguably the star at Satu’li Canteen is the make your own bowl option. If you look at the menu on the Walt Disney World website it seems confusing, but it’s actually easy. You’ll pick a base, a protein, and a sauce. It will then be made for you. A vegan version is available, and there are options for those with allergies. Proteins include beef, chicken, tofu, and fish, and the bowls come with vegetable slaw on the side. If you can’t decide which bowl you want to try, wait until after 5:00 and order the Satu’li Sampler Platter for your family. You’ll get a little bit of everything, and four drinks will be included as well.
