    Just wondering if our Tiffins reservation (Animal Kingdom) will allow us to sit outside on the patio if it's a beautiful day? Or if that area is just for the Lounge guests and will not be part of Tiffin's reservation options? Thanks!

    Hi Carrie!

    Thanks for stopping by with your question.

    I'm so excited about all the new additions to Disney's Animal Kingdom Park. With all of the awesome new nighttime offerings, dining options, and Pandora - The World of Avatar, Animal Kingdom is the "place to be" on a Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Two of the newest dining locations to open in the past year are Tiffin's Restaurant and Nomad Lounge. Both establishments are part of the same building, right outside the entrance to Pandora. Nomad Lounge is an open-air patio where Guests can enjoy small plates (appetizer-style food) and handcrafted cocktails based on Asian, African and South American flavors. Indoors, you'll find Tiffin's, a Signature Dining restaurant serving up a world of flavors in a fine dining experience.

    While the two establishments share the same building, you would not be able to dine on the full Tiffin's menu while seated in Nomad Lounge. When I was there recently, we had reservations at Tiffin's (the Rivers of Light Dining Package), and we arrived early for our reservation so we could enjoy some time on the patio at Nomad Lounge before they called our name to be seated for dinner. I encourage you to do the same - it's a lovely location, and the drink offerings are amazing. In addition to handcrafted cocktails, they also offer an impressive wine list, exotic non-alcoholic beverages, specialty teas, and coffees.

    I hope this helps answer your question! Please let us know if you have any further questions before your vacation - we're happy to help! - Diane W.
