Satu’li Canteen is the Counter Service restaurant in Disney World’s newest land, and it’s already made a name for itself as a spot for innovation. How? Well, it was the first restaurant to offer the new Mobile Order process, which allows guests to pre-order and pre-pay for their meal, then bypass the ordering queue and pick up their order right away upon arrival. (You can learn more about Mobile Order here.)
And now, Satu’li Canteen is earning a headline for innovation once more thanks to the offering of the shareable Satu’li Sampler Platter!
The Satu’li Sampler Platter brings to mind the Secret Nachos Rio Grande Challenge at Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn & Café, custom made to serve a crowd! Unlike the Nachos, though, the Satu’li Sampler Platter is no secret. It comes right up on the Satu’li Canteen menu, as you can see on the screenshot from the My Disney Experience app Mobile Order section below.
You can see in the notes (if you look reeaaaalllyyy close ) that the Platter is only available AFTER 5:00 pm until close. It comes with the guests’ choice of four proteins, a sampling of each base and sauce, and four non-specialty beverages.
If you’re choosing to utilize Mobile Order, you’ll see your protein choices listed for easy selection. Beef, Chicken, Fish, and Tofu are the options, just like with a regular solo entrée order of the Satu’li Customizable Bowls.
Again, a sampling of each base and sauce is included. Bases are Quinoa & Vegetable Salad, Red & Sweet Potato Hash, Mixed Whole Grain & Rice, and Romaine and Kale Salad.
Sauces include the Charred Onion Chimichurri, Black Bean Vinaigrette, and Creamy Herb Dressing.
Finally, select your four beverages, and you’re all set!
While you don’t have to utilize Mobile Order to partake of the Sampler (it’s listed on the regular Disney World online menu, too), we do love the ease of using the new process, especially when you’re feeding a hungry group!
So, let’s talk price and value. As you’ve seen, the Satu’li Sampler Platter is $74.99. Prices for the individual Customizable Satu’li Bowls range from $11.49 to $12.99 based on choice of protein. Prices for drinks vary as well, but let’s just stick with a $3.29 Fountain Beverage each for this example. These items would add up to just around $62.33, give or take based on drink and protein choices.
So what that extra cash (around $12.66…. ish ) buys you seems to be the chance to mix and match bases and sauces; sampling and trying a bit of everything among your group as you see fit. Personally, I’d save the dough, but maybe your group is willing to shell out a bit extra for the chance to sample the different proteins with the different bases and sauces.
What do you think? Would you be able to convince your group to try the Satu’li Sampler Platter? I’d love to hear what you think!
A huge thanks to Jean A. for the heads up on the Satu’li Sampler Platter!
