31 Days:: Dining at Animal Kingdom


{Dining Series}
Welcome to today's topic: Dining at the Animal Kingdom! Animal Kingdom has the fewest number of dining options out of all the Disney parks. That doesn't mean they're any less wonderful! In fact, since Animal Kingdom has the different themed countries, they have authentic cuisine from those countries! So let's get started with breakfast...

lunch at Yak & Yeti

Breakfast at Animal Kingdom
We usually grab breakfast before we come to the park, but I know there's a character breakfast with Donald and friends at the Tusker House, located in Africa, if you want to give it a try! It's a flat rate, all you can eat buffet.

Lunch at Animal Kingdom
Our favorite, hands down, for lunch (or dinner) is definitely Yak & Yeti! Located in Asia, it's Pan-Asian, so think of Chinese or Thai food, stir fry, tempura... we've always gotten something different there and it's always amazing! If you can get an upstairs seat by the window, it can be a great place to watch the afternoon parade from too!

Dinner at Animal Kingdom
Since the park can close early, a great option for dinner is the Rainforest Cafe, located right at the entrance to the park. It's hours I believe operate slightly independently of the park, so even if Animal Kingdom is closed for the day, you can still get a seating there.

Snacks at Animal Kingdom
Our go-to place to stop for a quick beverage or pastry is Kusafiri Coffee Shop & Bakery, located in Africa. Another place we may stop this year is Restaurantosaurus, located in DinoLand- they look to have some yummy sounding quick service meals there. There's tons of carts around the park where you can grab fruit, water, or an ice cream bar! Another place that typically gets rave reviews is Flame Tree BBQ, located on Discovery Island (we just haven't been there since I'm vegetarian- not much for me to snack on!!).

As I mentioned, Animal Kingdom doesn't have as many sit down restaurants here, so I'm about done for today's post! Check back tomorrow where I'll share how I use my meal planning trackers and go about choosing where/what we're eating throughout our trip!
