Disney Parks Bento Magic: Hei Hei from Disney’s ‘Moana’

We’re continuing our exclusive series of Disney-inspired bento box tutorials with yet another design inspired by the Disney film “Moana.” This time, Disney Parks Blog reader and fan Mike Kravanis is at Disney’s Polynesian Villas & Bungalows – a Disney Vacation Club Resort – to show you how to wow your friends and family with a special Hei Hei bento box.

To create a Hei Hei bento box, Mike started with a bed of blue rice made by cooking it in a butterfly pea flower tea and then added in a strip of pineapple filling. Hei Hei himself is made mostly out of raw vegetables, with green onions and carrots used to create his feathers. Check out the video for step-by-step instructions.

Keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for more Disney-inspired bento box tutorials in upcoming weeks.


  • Wow, love it., we all loved the movie. Will have to do dinner & movie night with kids at home and make this as surprise dinner. Thanks for recipe, so adorable.

  • Nice job, Mike! Love HeiHei!
