Pongu Pongu at Disney's Animal Kingdom


Pongu Pongu is a Quick Service drink stand located in Pandora - The World of Avatar at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Although Pongu Pongu is primarily a drink stand, the location is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and serves snacks, as well as beverages, that are out of this world. 

If you aren't sure where to find Pongu Pongu, just look for the AMP suit (aka the giant robot looking thing) and you're there! There isn't any seating available at this drink stand so you can take your drinks/snacks to-go as you explore Pandora or you can grab a seat at the outdoor seating area next door at Satu'li Canteen. Note that the seating area for Satu'li Canteen is reserved for guests dining at that restaurant but you are more than welcome to sit there before the restaurant opens with your items from Pongu Pongu.

For breakfast, Pongu Pongu serves a Sausage, Egg and Cheese Biscuit, French Toast Sticks, and a Pongu Lumpia. On our recent trip we tried the French Toast Sticks and the Pongu Lumpia, a pineapple cream cheese spring roll. We weren't sure what to expect with the Pongu Lumpia but it was absolutely delicious! I also really enjoyed the French Toast Sticks. I mean, it's hard to go wrong with fried dough and cinnamon sugar.

If you live by the philosophy that "it's 5 o'clock somehwere", you could also grab an alcoholic beverage with your breakfast. Treat yourself to a Rum Blossom, Mo'ara Margarita, Mo'ara High Country Ale or Hawkes' Grog Ale. Ever heard someone talk about how amazing the green beer is at Disney's Animal Kingdom? They're talking about the Hawkes' Grog Ale. I didn't try it on this trip but plan to try it on a future trip.  

We didn't get an alcoholic beverage for breakfast but I did opt for the Night Blossom, a non-alcoholic speciality beverage. It's a super photogenic drink and it takes good too! It's pretty sweet but I find it's flavors to be refreshing on a hot, Florida day. The Rum Blossom is the alcoholic version of the Night Blossom with rum added. 

The alcoholic beverages are available all day so if you don't feel like a margarita for breakfast, you can grab one later. That's what we need! We went back to Pongu Pongu later in the afternoon to get ourselves a Mo'ara Margarita. It's another frozen drink that didn't disappoint on a hot, hot day. The Boba Balls on the Mo'ara Margarita and Night Blossom drinks are cute for pictures but a little weird to eat.

You'll see the Pongu Lumpia on the lunch and dinner menu with the addition of a Colossal Pretzel served with beer cheese sauce. I didn't try one of these on our recent trip but they sound delicious! I'll definitely be going back to Pongu Pongu to get a green beer and a pretzel on our next trip. 

Pongu Pongu means "Party Party" in the Na'vi language and your tastebuds will certainly be having a party when you try their beverages and snacks. Do you have a favorite menu item from Pongu Pongu?

Paddlefish Restaurant at Disney Springs

After arriving in Walt Disney World around dinnertime with no reservations on our latest trip, we headed over to Disney Springs to see what was available and Paddlefish caught our eye with the beautiful boat shining on the water.  There was space for us at the bar where they serve the full menu, so we settled right in for what was about to be a delicious dinner. We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could
