Animal Kingdom’s Pandora — The World of AVATAR is known for a few of its more unique eats almost as much as it’s well known for the land’s headliner attractions and remarkable atmosphere.
For instance, the Night Blossom at Pongu Pongu — Pandora’s beverage and snack stop — has been a huge hit. So much so, that this drink has also received a spiked makeover with a recently added Rum Blossom version.
The drinks have been such a huge hit that perhaps they’ve overshadowed what was supposed to be Pongu Pongu’s signature snack: the Pongu Lumpia. Because on our visit to Pongu Pongu today, we realized that the Pongu Lumpia is no longer listed on the menu.
These eggroll-style snacks presented pineapple and cream cheese together in a wonton wrapper. And from the get-go, reviews were quite mixed. The Pongu Lumpia gained a reputation as a love-it-or-hate-it snack, with few opinions in between. Even our DFB team was quite divided on the treat.
Still, those who love it tend to REALLY love it, so we imagine this will come as a sad surprise to some stopping at Pongu Pongu.
We should note that we checked with a Cast Member and as of the day of this publishing (August 23), they do still have a few Lumpia on hand for a few more orders, but once they’re gone, that’s it. The Cast Member we spoke with shared that they did not believe this to be a temporary change, but did not know with absolute certainty. But if it does come back, we certainly don’t expect to see it anytime soon.
So, obviously there are some food changes going on in Pandora, including the recent removal of the Vegetable Curry Pods at Satu’li Canteen. So far, though, neither of these items has any specific replacements, as the Colossal Pretzel that is currently on the menu has been available at Pongu Pongu for some time now. As always, we’ll keep an eye out for what’s new and next, and will keep you posted right here!
