Pongu Pongu Drinks in Pandora

Looking for a snack or drink to refresh your party while hanging out in Disney’s Animal Kingdom?  Look no further than the slushy drink stand called Pongu Pongu that means “Party, Party” to the Na’vi. As with most places in Disney World, the backstory is that an expatriate created the bar. The expatriate Alpha Centauri visitor fell in love with the alluring planet of Pandora.

While the snackstand is limited, it is located across from the Satuli Canteen, the land’s quick service restaurant. The multicolored drinks are refreshing, slushy, and channel all of the “Party, Party” spirit. If you are looking forward to spending time with the Na’vi and creatures from Avatar, read on for how to enjoy all the Pongu Pongu drinks in Pandora.

You know why I love Walt Disney World?  They make a small snack stand into an intricately themed plot point.  The party begins in this glorified snack shop with a straw-thatched roof, found next to the popular shop Windtraders.  It features draft beers, non-alcoholic and alcoholic frozen beverages, and specialty snacks.

Our Review of Pongu Pongu

The menu is delicious and gorgeous to boot- Pongu Pongu’s frozen beverage menu features colorful photographs. Because of these pictures, choosing a delicacy was difficult. It was a toss-up between choosing our drinks based on the hue: purple or green?

Spoiler alert: we went with neither! An alcoholic drink was not nearly as festive appearing as the night blossom.  How could you pass up on the night (or rum) blossom if we chose our drink based on the color hue?

We sampled the Mo’ara Margarita, a strawberry and blood orange margarita made with Sauza Commemorativo Anejo Tequila. We found the drinks delicious and refreshing but challenging to sip through a wide paper straw (unless you drank it quickly). Moreover, these ridiculously tasty beverages are topped with your strawberry Boba balls or the glowing undelta seed for an extra charge. Don’t worry- the undelta seed is just a glow cube!

Everyone around us were heralding rave reviews about the non-alcoholic Night Blossom. You can now make this alcoholic by adding a shot of rum.

We sampled the pineapple cream cheese spring roll (definitely NOT gluten-free) called the Pongu Lompia. We were able to sample with our daughter who loved it, but it was almost too sweet. The chunks of pineapple are unexpected and confusing from a sensory standpoint.

This is the “Pick up here” window where you order and pick-up your delicious menus. We could not get enough of the theming.  Everywhere you look there are artifiacts from Pandora.
