    what is the best place to dine at Animal Kingdom

    Jambo Ward!

    It’s always a delight to see you here at planDisney! 

    You have asked a question about one of my very favorite topics: dining at Walt Disney World Resort, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom sure has some incredible spots to enjoy delicious cuisine! I’m happy to discuss some of my favorites with you!

    Ward, I like to begin my day bright and early at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park! This way, I can start with an early breakfast right after riding Avatar Flight of Passage! If you’d like to experience a modified Character Meal, Tusker House Restaurant has a delectable breakfast menu of food with American and African flavors as you take socially distanced selfies with your favorite pals! Some days, I like to save my appetite for lunch, so for breakfast, I like to stop by Creature Comforts Coffee Shop where I grab some STARBUCKS® coffee and a Mickey Colossal Cinnamon Roll to share with my family. The warm and sweet cinnamon roll with icing is truly mouthwatering! 

    I have two favorite snacks at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park, and I make room for both during the day. The first is at Harambe Fruit Market near Kilimanjaro Safaris, where I get Grilled Corn on the Cob. You can get it seasoned with African Spices, and the seasoning is what dreams are made of. If you were wondering, this is a snack I do not share because it’s that good. The other treat I am sure to get is at a snack kiosk called Mr. Kamal’s. The seasoned fries with dipping sauces are a must-do for my entire family; we can’t get enough!

    For lunch, and this is my favorite Quick-Service meal in all of Walt Disney World Resort, is Satu'li Canteen at Pandora. You’ll find it has healthier options that are packed with scrumptious flavors. My go-to dish is their Chili-Spiced Crispy Fried Tofu Bowl, and in case you were wondering, I’m drooling just thinking about it.

    Now, I know I’ve mentioned a lot of food, but stay with me here because we still have to eat dinner! Treat yourself to an incredible meal inside what’s meant to be a village home that’s been transformed into the beautiful Yak & Yeti™ Restaurant! Their Ahi Tuna Nachos are famous, and honestly, you can’t go wrong with any of the dishes here!

    I know you asked for the best place to eat at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park, but I just wanted to make sure you knew there are plenty of scrumptious, appetizing, delightful meals to be had! I do hope I helped narrow it down some for you, or you could be like me and make room for it all! 

    I hope you have an enchanting time, Ward!
