Disney World | Pandora the World of Avatar

Yesterday, Disney World updated their online park map, which can be viewed online here or on their mobile app “My Disney Experience.” This is a very exciting update as we are now able to see the geographic footprint of the new land. Pandora – The World of Avatar, will open to the public on May 27th 2017. This new land will feature two new rides, Avatar Flight of Passage and Na’vi River Journey.

With this updated park map, we can now see the two walkways into Pandora. The first walkway is near Tiffins Restaurant and Nomad Lounge. The other path starts at The Festival of the Lion King and runs along parallel to the water. Pandora will be featuring two unique dining selections.

Satu’li Canteen – Table Service

A Menu Inspired by Pandora’s Bounty

Discover healthful dishes and familiar flavors from another world—wholesome grains, fresh vegetables and hearty proteins.

Between your aerial adventures on Avatar Flight of Passage and family-friendly voyages aboard Na’vi River Journey, tuck inside the Quonset-hut structure called Satu’li Canteen—long ago an RDA mess hall, now a peaceful dining facility adorned with Na’vi art and cultural items.

Owned and operated by Alpha Centauri Expeditions (ACE), Satu’li Canteen supplies travelers all the comforts of home—courtesy of a unique, fast-casual menu that’s been crafted from Pandora’s natural abundance.

Featuring international-inspired cuisine, vegetarian options and specialty libations, it’s the perfect place to refuel as you venture through the Valley of Mo’ara.

Beverages from Beyond Our World

Quench your thirst the Pandoran way at an otherworldly pit-stop offering Na’vi-inspired refreshment.

Are your expeditions at Avatar Flight of Passage and Na’vi River Journey leaving you parched? Hike to the corner of Windtraders where you’ll find Pongu Pongu—when you spot a friendly expat serving out-of-this-world drinks, you’ve come to the right place.

Meaning “Party Party” in the language of the Na’vi, Pongu Pongu welcomes weary travelers to try our “bioluminescent” frozen cocktail, indigenous beers—or even a sweet snack you won’t find elsewhere!

As a kid, I had visited Disney multiple times and it sparked a passion for all things Disney. In 2010, I proposed to my wife in front of Cinderella's Castle an since then it has been a large part of our life. Now as a father and experiencing Disney with my wife through our daughters eyes, our love for Disney has grown tenfold and I can't wait to share my passion and experiences with you.
