When you think of a Walt Disney World quick service meal, does your mind automatically go to burgers, nuggets and mac and cheese?
I believe Disney has really raised the bar when it comes to their quick service options with Satu’li Canteen. This restaurant is in the new Animal Kingdom land of Pandora – The World of Avatar and offers healthy dishes with well-known ingredients.
If you would like to bypass this standby line, you can preorder your meals using the My Disney Experience app. The only form of payment currently available for preorder is a credit or debit card. If you would like to use the Disney Dining Plan or a gift card, you will need to place your order at the restaurant.
Once you have picked up your meals, you are then welcome to find a seat in the main dining hall or outside.
The main lunch and dinner menu consists of “build your own” bowls or steamed pods called Bao Buns. Guests build their bowls in three steps. The first is to select your protein (beef, chicken, fish or tofu). From there, a base is chosen (salad, potato hash, or grains) and lastly, the sauce (chimichurri, vinaigrette or herb dressing).
Our girls ordered the Teylu Hot Dog and the Cheese Quesadilla. I was happy to see fresh grapes and veggie chips! Both of these dishes were fine, as a typical kids menu item.
I enjoy Disney meals that are not going to weigh me down as I continue my day in the park. I like to be refueled with great flavors, but not feel like I am carrying a brick around the park for the next few hours. Satu’li Canteen certainly fit the bill! I loved the flavors and the focus on natural, healthy options in a very unique atmosphere. Another nice touch is the “real” dishes and utensils. There are no plastic forks and paper plates at Satu’li Canteen, which is right in line with the story and dedication to preservation.
