Today I’m going to be spotlighting Disney’s newest restaurant: Satu’li Canteen in Pandora!
Basic info: Satu’li is a quick-service restaurant located in the Pandora section of Animal Kingdom. It offers mobile ordering through the My Disney Experience app, as well as the Disney Dining Plan; however, there is no discount for Cast Members or Annual Passholders. Menu items are $15 and under per adult.
Crispy Fried Tofu Bowl
These bowls are fully customizable; pictured above is wild rice, fried tofu, garden slaw with (very strange-tasting) yogurt boba balls, and black bean chipotle sauce. You could also use fish as your protein if you’re pesca. The other base options are quinoa salad, potato hash, and kale salad; the other sauce options are onion chimichurri and herb dressing.
While my dish was good…certainly head-and-shoulders above regular park food, not to mention easier to vegetarian-ize than just about anything else Disney sells…I also felt like I could’ve made it better at home for less money. But, of course, that’s the nature of eating in-park. I’d definitely still recommend this to guests who are more health-conscious or even just tired of eating french fries and Greek yogurt at every quick-service.
Note: I see a lot of the blueberry cream cheese mousse on Instagram. It is beautiful and, unfortunately, not true vegetarian (it contains gelatin). To the best of my knowledge the chocolate cake is true vegetarian, but I didn’t try it and can’t vouch for the taste.
Thanks for reading, guys! As always feel free to check out my Instagram and let me know if there’s anything you’d like me to try on my next trip!

So I was sitting around getting ready to write this week’s Veg Disney post (yes, I know I missed last week, but I was in Connecticut visiting my best friend from my CP) when I realized: I’ve been to Pandora three times and haven’t written about it yet!
So, without further ado, here’s a list of my favorite things about the newest creation from the Imagineers.
Flight of Passage
Yo. Words can’t describe how much I love this ride. I have a self-imposed rule that I won’t wait in any standby line that’s more than 25 minutes long, because after alternating between CM and AP for so long I just don’t see the point. But I have waited two hours for this ride, TWICE. That’s how you know. It’s fun and the graphics are incredible and it truly takes your breath away. Please, even if you’re a privileged crap like me who refuses to wait in lines, wait for this one, especially because unless you’re staying on property, you’re not gonna get a Fastpass.
So this reminds me a lot of the violet lemonade from Flower & Garden, except it’s full-sized and has those fun boba balls on it. I don’t like to buy snacks at Disney too often because I think they’re overpriced but this is absolutely worth the splurge. I’ll be doing a blog on Pongu Pongu at a later date, but for now all you need to know is that the night blossom slush is worth the price.
I just think they’re pretty and that the physics behind them are incredible. Totally Instagram-worthy, if you’re into that.
That’s all for today, guys! I’m going to try to go at night in two weeks (I tried last week but flights to Florida were delayed. I can’t even begin on the airport nightmares of the past two weeks) and take tons of pictures then. If you’d like, follow me on Instagram to keep up more regularly!
