Friday DisNews: Full Menu for Satu’li Canteen is Out – and Pandora is looking awesome!
I’m a little behind in getting this blog post up, but I’m very excited to say that the sneak peeks we’re being given about Pandora: The World of Avatar are looking better and better! I enjoyed the movie when it came out, and I think one of its strongest points was that it was gorgeous to look at. Now that its become a real part of Disney, and we know how well they do bringing things to life, I’m really excited to see what they do with it. I’m also excited to have a reason to stay in the Animal Kingdom park past five. In the past, Animal Kingdom has not been a full day park for my family, mainly because of the heat (it always seems like the hottest of hte parks) and because my family doesn’t ride roller coasters or Kali River Rapids. (With my husband, that may change, because he loves coasters) This, however, looks like two new rides I think I’ll like, and I am hoping for great things from the nighttime look of Pandora, with its bioluminescent features. The possibilities of what this could look like are really exciting! Take a look at this video, provided by Walt Disney World Resort:
I mean, the beginning is a lot of the same opening shots of the entrance that have been posted everywhere. But I’m very excited by the peek into the Na’vi River Ride! It looks like it should be really fun, and really beautiful to look at.
Walt Disney World has also released the full menu for the Satu’li Canteen! I couldn’t get any press photos for the food, but if you want a sneak peek, you can visit the Disney Blog and the full menu on The Disney site. The selection looks interesting, and you can see that they’re sticking with the themes from the movie by creating a menu with healthier fare. I’ve also heard that they will be using an online ordering system where you can order and pay via the My Disney Experience app and then tell the kitchen, via the app, that you’ve arrived. When your food is ready, it can then be picked up at a specific window/place in the restaurant. This should be a nice feature, as I’m sure the restaurant will be crowded, at least to start. It also allows you to customize your meals as well, with a nice selection of healthy foods. The cheeseburger “pod” looks like it might be a bit of a stretch to all that “healthy,” but I like the idea of the “pods.”
What are you looking forward to most in Pandora?
