8 Things You’ll Love About Satu’li Canteen At Walt Disney World

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.

7. Trash

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.

5. Atmosphere

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.

4. Desserts

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.

3. Pods

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.

1. Bowls

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.

About PaulaK

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
