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?

You Must Be This Tall to Ride... Universal Orlando Resort Edition

Universal Orlando Resort has branded itself as the more grown-up vacation destination in central Florida. With advertising campaigns like "kids grow up, so do vacations" and "grow bolder", it should be no surprise that there are many attractions at the Universal Theme Parks with height requirements.  If you're visiting the Universal Orlando Theme Parks with little ones, it's very important to familiarize yourself with the ride height requirements so you know which attractions your little ones can, and can't ride, based on their height. You'll find these helpful signs with height requirements for all of the attractions when you enter the Universal Orlando Theme Parks. Universal Studios Florida 34 inches - E.T.

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs

Frontera Cocina is one of the many restaurants you will find with a celebrity chef at Disney Springs, this one is brought to you by seven-time James Beard award winner, Rick Bayless.  The warm colors and open atmosphere is very welcoming for a contemporary Mexican dining experience.  Reservations are highly suggested and can be made via My Disney Experience or the Open Table app and the restaurant is typically open for lunch and dinner from 11am to 11pm daily.   We had lunch here on a Monday afternoon and the restaurant wasn't too terribly busy at all, which was a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the weekend. We settled in at a table in the middle of the restaurant and got ready for the meal ahead.  While somehow I missed a photo, we did start our meal with $5 margaritas which is definitely a great deal while on Disney property!  This was a "Margarita Monday" special and we would highly recommend it!  We also opted for some chips and salsa and some queso. Now,
