Pandora: The World of Avatar, over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, will feature special food and merchandise options for the movie, as well as an epic projection show on the Tree of Life.

Disney Parks states:

If you have enjoyed walking through the Valley of Mo’ara and other experiences at Pandora – The World of Avatar in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, you may want to consider attending when the sun has set. For a limited time beginning Dec. 12, the Tree of Life will awaken in the evenings with an all-new experience inspired by Pandora – The World of Avatar and the film, “Avatar: The Way of Water.” Produced by Lightstorm Entertainment in collaboration with Disney Live Entertainment, this new story sequence illuminates the park’s iconic Tree of Life with the magic of nature.

For all the foodies out there, there are a few new items inspired by “Avatar: The Way of Water” making their way to Satu’li Canteen in Disney’s Animal Kingdom on Dec. 16. The Metkayina Mousse is a flourless chocolate cake with chocolate mousse, decorated with raspberry gelee, mango coulis, boba pearls and finished off with a milk and white chocolate garnish. The colorful Ocean Moon Bowl is made with tuna, blue noodles, watermelon radish, pickled daikon, rainbow carrots, avocado, cucumbers and red cabbage with a miso and sweet soy drizzle. Wash it all down with the new Ilu Splash Margarita which is a mix of kiwi Monin syrup with lime juice, sour mix, Corazon Tequila Blanco, and a floating slice of Kiwi.
