Avatar Land Food: This Is What Disney World's Pandora Food Looks Like

Avatar Land Food: This Is What Disney World's Pandora Food Looks Like
From Slashfilm - March 20, 2017

Pandora: The World of Avatar opens on May 27, 2017in Walt Disney Worlds Animal Kingdom theme park. Since Avatar Land (as well always call it in our hearts) was first announced by Disney, one of the many selling points involved immersing guests in the world of Pandora, from the floating mountains down to the exotic alien food served at the restaurants. This is expected at this pointUniversals The Wizarding World of Harry Potter has redefined food options at theme parks: gone are the cheap bad food choices, replaced with immersive food options that continue to transport guests into another world.

So what will the food of Pandora look like? Lets take a look at theAvatar Land food below.

The image above is previously released Avatar Land concept art showing Satuli Canteen, the main restaurant in Pandora: The World of Avatar.The storyline of the park says thatSatuli Canteen was once the main mess hall of the Resources Development Administration (RDA) base located in the Valley of Moara, as seen in the first Avatar film. Heres more:

Now the canteen is owned and operated by Alpha Centauri Expeditions (ACE) tour company and has been redesigned into a beautiful museum-like dining room.The interior has been transformed with colorful Navi items filling the walls and hanging from the ceilinghand-woven tapestries, natural Pandoran elements and even cooking tools decorate the restaurant.

The SatuliCanteen will be the first fast-casual restaurant to offer Mobile Order, which is basically Disneys next-generationway of taking food orders. ThinkMagicBand or FastPass for restaurants:

A new convenient option to order and pay for meals on-the-go within the My Disney Experience app, allowing guests to bypass the queue to order when they arrive at the restaurant. Using the app, guests can select menu items, customize their order and pre-pay for their meal. When they arrive at the restaurant they will tap an Im here button in the app, which will notify the kitchen to prepare the meal. When ready, guests will be alerted through the app to pick up their meal at a designated window. Disney Dining Plan is accepted at Satuli Canteen but, at this time, Mobile Order only accepts credit cards.

This sounds like a welcome advance for Disney Parks. Just a couple weeks back, I was checking out Disneylands limited time re-theme of Village Haus Restaurant into a Beauty and the BeastsRed Rose Taverne and found myself waiting at a counter for nearly twenty minutes. It would be great if this new Mobile Order technology would do away with those annoyances. Disney says that additional fast casual and quick-service restaurants will begin to offer Mobile Order later this year.
