    I'm taking my daughter to the Animal Kingdom for her birthday can anyone suggest a nice place to have dinner. Not the Rainforest cafe

    Hi Laura!  The Animal Kingdom park is a great place to celebrate a birthday!

    If you are looking for a table service restaurant for your daughter's birthday dinner there are two choices besides the Rainforest Cafe.  Yak and Yeti is located in the Asia area of the park and specializes in the Asian fusion cuisine.However, my choice for a fun evening meal would be Tusker House. This is located in the Africa section and although it is a buffet style meal the food choices are delicious! Please note this is  a character experience at breakfast only. Lunch and dinner offer the buffet without the special guests! Don't forget to order your daughter a birthday cake to be delivered to your table.  The restaurants will offer a simple chocolate or vanilla cake or you can order something personal by calling the cake hotline at 407-827-2253.

    There are also many wonderful quick service spots throughout the park.  If you wanted to choose one for a birthday celebration then my choice would be Flametree Barbecue.  This is my family's favorite eating spot in the park as the food is outstanding.  We like to take our trays and follow the path down to the water's edge and dine under the shade of the open building.  Be prepared for some feathered friends to join you!  They aren't shy and they do provide entertainment!
