One Year In, These Are The Best Snacks in Disney World’s Pandora, The World of Avatar!

On May 27, 2018, Pandora — the World of AVATAR celebrated its first birthday! And while the Animal Kingdom’s newest land didn’t have a Pandoran smash cake, we did stop in to retry some of the eats that’ve fueled many a journey down the Na’vi River and on the back of a banshee for Flight of Passage!

Pandora features two distinct eateries: quick service winner Satu’li Canteen, where customizable bowls have been bowling over diners since it opened, and snack stand Pongu Pongu, which means Party Party and is basically just that in cups and wrappers! :p

Pongu Pongu is conveniently located near the exit of Flight of Passage, which is really just ’round the corner from the entrance to Flight of Passage, so whether you’re coming or going, Pongu Pongu reigns for your FoP snacking.

We’ve enjoyed the limited menu here since day one, but we wondered how the newly minted one-year-old was holding up. Also we wanted an excuse to eat and drink these items again, so here we are. ;)

We started with the Pongu Lumpia, a simple and delicious hand-held snack. This nondescript spring roll is filled with Pineapples and Cream Cheese, fried, and sprinkled with sugar.

The Pongu Lumpia is just as good as ever! The wonton wrapper is fried to light golden brown, and the sweet filling is indulgent without being too heavy. Incidentally, lumpia is a popular snack in Indonesia and the Philippines, where they’re usually served savory. But this sweet version? Awesome!

By far the most popular beverage at Pongu Pongu is a colorful concoction called the Night Blossom. This non-alcoholic drink is a mix of Limeade with apple and desert pear flavors topped off with every party drink’s favorite boba balls — these in passion fruit flavor! It’s fun to look at, refreshing to drink, and taaaaaasty!

For those who prefer a little liquid courage when braving the Pandoran wilderness, the Mo’ara Margarita is Sauza Conmemorativo Anejo Tequila with strawberry and blood orange flavors, topped with strawberry boba balls.

The combination of strawberry and blood orange is unique (although we’d like the blood orange to be more prominent), it’s a great, cooling drink for a Pandoran summer.

Happy birthday to Pandora — the World of AVATAR! We raise our glass of Night Blossom to you (but not our Pongu Lumpia; we already ate that…).

    In all fairness, aren’t these the only snacks they have? Besides a pretzel they just added? lol

    I found the non-alcoholic version of the Night Blossom was super sweet, almost making unenjoyable. I will be trying the alcoholic version in Oct and maybe it cuts the sweet down? Anyone try both and find the alcohol version to cut the sweetness? Because if you are washing down a Lumpia its just too much sweet.

    Megan, Satu”li has 2 desserts, blueberry cream cheese mousse and a chocolate cake. Both not bad but again really, really sweet.
