    We are considering the Disney dining plan for the family and are planning on staying at AK. Are we able to use some of the restaurants at the hotel for the quick meal-- and the nicer sit down restaurants for the table service?


    The Mara at Animal Kingdom Lodge is a great place to grab a quick meal using the Disney Dining Plan. Its a great, fun place and you can even enjoy your meal at a table outdoors if you'd like.

    Boma: Flavors of Africa is a favorite of Walt Disney World guests. This buffet features African-inspired dishes that also appeal to even the pickiest of eaters. Its a great place to try out some new flavors without worrying about what you might find to eat. Be sure to try the Zebra Domes!

    For a signature meal, Jiko: The Cooking Place is tops! The meals there are some of the best at Walt Disney World. Just a note: Signature restaurants do require 2 meal credits per person per meal.

    Hope you find some great meals at Animal Kingdom Lodge! Enjoy!
