Sivako from Tokyo DisneySea! To promote the upcoming “Avatar: The Way of Water,” Yucatan Base Camp Grill is serving up two new Pandora-themed treats for a limited time only. Naturally, we had to give these a try, so join us on this new experience!

Vanilla mousse, custard, peach, almonds

Say what you will about this dessert, the presentation is incredible. There’s nothing they could’ve done to make this more “Pandora” if you ask me.

The dessert consists of custard and peaches topped with matcha crumbles and pink-dyed white chocolate. A milk chocolate version of Neytiri’s necklace sits at the center.

The plain mousse is all-blue, symbolizing water as in the film, as well as Pandora itself.

The inside is filled with whipped cream and a lemon meringue.

The Pandora dessert isn’t particularly memorable, but the design certainly takes a great photo. The peaches taste fairly fresh, and the matcha crumbles are not overwhelming, a critical detail for those from the west who may not enjoy the earthy flavor as much. The mousse is unremarkable, being that it’s 90% whipped cream. All in all, you can certainly do worse for a dessert. It’s not particularly special, but not bad either.

Special Drink – ¥700 ($5.13)

Blue syrup, cacao nibs, soda

Like with the dessert, the presentation here is incredible.

The cup is well-themed, featuring the face of Kiri, daughter of Jake Sully and Neytiri.

Decorative garnish greens and a flower top the drink, and cacao nibs evoke dirt.

If there was an award for the worst-tasting drink at any theme park ever, this would be the winner. It tastes like someone poured club soda over NyQuil, with the unadvertised jelly at the bottom giving this a medicinal flavor that leans way too far into the herbal territory. Especially considering this is at one of the restaurants which serves Kirin Apple Tea Soda, a Tokyo Disney Resort exclusive and one of my favorite sodas on earth, I advise you to stay very, very far away from this drink. I had to go order an Apple Tea Soda just to get some of the taste out.

These treats are available for a limited time at Yucatan Base Camp Grill at Tokyo DisneySea, although your money is probably better spent elsewhere in the park. What do you think of these new Avatar-themed items? Let us know in the comments below!
