Review: Teriyaki Beef Slider at Bradley Falls in Disney’s Animal Kingdom

I love all of the new menu changes that have been happening lately at Animal Kingdom.

It’s fun to explore the kiosks and counter service spots here especially, because it always seems like there’s something new to discover.

That’s especially true with the introduction of Harambe Market earlier this year. And who can resist popping into Zuri’s Sweets Shop to see what temptations await you?

But today, we’re exploring an old favorite — Bradley Falls Kiosk.

Seriously. Every single time I set foot into Animal Kingdom, it seems like I find new dishes at this cute little cart. And on a visit earlier this year, the same held true.

We had previously told you about the Thai Pork Sandwich. Well, Friends — it’s out with the old and in with the new. Because these days, you’ll find a Teriyaki Beef Slider in place of the pork. [Read more…]

Review: Zuri’s Sweets Shop in Animal Kingdom’s Harambe Market

We’re meandering back through the brand new Harambe Market in Disney’s Animal Kingdom to take you on a full tour and review of some of the treats at Zuri’s Sweets Shop today!

The shop, located outside the main gate of the new eating area, is your stop for all kinds of prepackaged sweets and snacks. You’ll find an assortment of familiar Disney snacks with Animal Kingdom-specific branding as well as a number of out-of-the-ordinary bulk items. But you’ll also find a confectionery counter with freshly made candy, cookies, and other sweets.

We shared a first look at Zuri’s the day it opened. As you may recall, the big story there was the “Match the Species” Treats — aka the “poop” candy. While the treats made a big sensation, they were gone almost as quickly as they arrived. (We’ve spoken to store managers about this, and they claim that the snacks sold well and they aren’t sure why they were pulled from the case. They suggest telling guest services that you’d like to see them come back.)

I can’t wait to show you all that we’ve tried over the course of a couple of visits! But before we get to that, let’s have a look around.


If you haven’t had a chance to check out Harambe Market in person, be sure to take a look at our tour of this new spot. Disney has managed, once again, to create a brand new part of Animal Kingdom that looks like it’s been there since opening day. The themeing here is extraordinary.
