Satuli Canteen in Pandora: The World of AVATAR to be First Disney Quick Service Restaurant with Mobile Ordering

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Disney will finally be rolling out mobile advance ordering for counter service restaurants, and they will be doing it May 27th at their very newest.

Satuli Canteen inside Pandora: The World of AVATAR will be the very first restaurant at Walt Disney World to open with the feature.

Mobile ordering allows you to pay for meals on-the-go with the My Disney Experience app, bypassing the queue to order in the restaurant. Using the app, you can select any of the menu items, customize them as you wish, and pre-pay for the meal. Arriving at the restaurant, guests will simply tap “I’m Here”, which will notify cast members to prepare the meal. When it’s ready, you will be alerted in the app to pick up the food at a designated service window. Only credit card payments will be accepted for this service, with Dining Plan guests still having to use the normal queue, at least as of right now.

Disney of course tested this service in one form or another over the last few years, including the most notable test at the Backlot Express and Fantasmic at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Disney has also released ore details on the menu:

Look for familiar dishes with a twist in the fast-casual restaurant, with bowls that allow diners to customize their lunch or dinner. Diners start with a base of quinoa and vegetable salad; red and sweet potato hash; mixed whole-grain and rice or romaine and kale salad. Next is either with wood-grilled chicken, slow-roasted beef, sustainable fish or chili-spiced fried tofu. And the bowl is finished with charred onion chimichurri, black bean vinaigrette or creamy herb dressing.

The menu also offers steamed “pods” – bao buns with either cheeseburger or vegetable curry and served with root vegetable chips and crunchy vegetable slaw.

For little ones, there’s an option of grilled chicken or beef, fish or tofu with greens or rice; a hot dog wrapped in Parker House dough; cheese quesadilla, or a steamed “pod” (cheeseburger bao bun).

    • WDW NEWS Today: you hear it…..whenever Tom finishes his Hot Pocket and cleans the garage.

  • There’s an I’m here button? If there’s one lament I have towards the My Disney Experience App, it’s the complete killing of theming. Considering it uses GPS, it would be amazing if the look of the app would change whenever you cross into a new land that fits with the theme. They definitely want to make sure you spend more time in stores though don’t they. No line for food, you’re waiting for your next fast pass, lets go in that store to kill time. It’s honestly genius on their part. Now if they could find a way to keep you from needing to use the bathroom or sit down to rest, they’d be set.

  • The food offerings look absolutely delicious. I have little doubt that the entire dining experience will be amazing. There should be no alcoholic beverages served within Pandora, as it would ruin the atmosphere. Watching slovenly, overweight, louts consuming copious amounts of alcohol and rudely staggering through the parks has become bothersome.

  • You are sooooo right!!! Please no bottles of water because that would take me out of the themeing and ruin the atmosphere of Pandora.
