The Animal Kingdom Tasting Sampler — which made its limited-time debut at the park over the holiday season — is returning for another run this spring from April 12-22, 2019!
The Tasting Sampler — which is available for sale NOW — costs $50 and includes two digital value cards: one $50 card that can be used at over 40 outdoor food and beverage locations throughout the park (and does not expire), and a bonus $10 card that can be used at the following quick-service restaurants after 5pm from April 12-22, 2019: Restaurantosaurus, Pizzafari and Pizzafari Family-Style Dining, Flame Tree Barbecue, and Satu’li Canteen. (You’ll find instructions for purchasing at the end of this post.)
Part of the fun of the Tasting Sampler availability is the addition of LOTS of extra treats and eats throughout the park!
And note that these are available for any guests to purchase, whether you elect to buy the Tasting Sampler or not. We were quite impressed with the offerings during the last Tasting Sampler run, so we’re glad to know that some of the items will be returning, along with new additions to try!
