    Silly question.. but does The Mara have individual cream cheese packets to purchase?

    Hi Breanna, welcome to planDisney! When planning a vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort, there are no silly questions. If it is important to you, it’s important to us at planDisney! It sounds like you are either staying at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge or swinging by like Tarzan for a quick bite. I haven’t stayed there myself but I have visited Sanaa plenty (the Indian-style Bread Service is unbelievable) and hope to check this resort off my bucket list soon!

    I looked over the menu for The Mara and didn’t happen to see anything offered that would traditionally be paired with cream cheese, so I don’t believe it would be available for you to purchase there. However, each Disney Resort Collection hotel has a small section of food basics located in the hotel gift shop, so you may be in luck there. If you strike out at both locations, I recommend placing an order through one of the grocery delivery services for those staple items that you cannot live without. My family does this on every visit. We like to order items for breakfasts on the go and some snacks for afternoons and evenings in the park. The best part? You don’t have to be there for delivery (unless something ordered requires age verification). A Cast Member at Bell Services will accept the delivery and store them for you (even placing the perishable items in a refrigerator)! Just keep in mind that unless you are staying in a Villa-style room, the fridge in your room is on the smaller side.

    I hope this answers your question, Breanna, and I hope you enjoy your visit to Walt Disney World and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge!
