Is Tiffins in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Worth Two Disney Dining Plan Credits?

If you are looking for an eclectic meal in the heart of Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom, Tiffins could be the right choice. Open just under two years, Tiffins is a Signature Dining experience — which means it requires two Disney Dining Plan table service credits (or quite an investment from your wallet).

But guests agree that dining in Tiffins is as much about the atmosphere as it is the food. The restaurant is inspired by travel and the wonderful adventures that take place when one steps out of one’s comfort zone. You’ll see nods to travel quite literally everywhere — from wall to wall. You’ll also find love for animals and conservation in the artwork at Tiffins, in keeping with the Park’s theme.

The food at Tiffins is an interesting blend of flavors and ingredients from around the globe, and it’s generally enjoyed by guests who yearn for something adventurous in their dining. Tiffins, and her sister Nomad Lounge, adjust their menus with some regularity (particularly on the Small Plates menus), so if you plan on dining here, you’ll want to keep an eye on the menus.

Check Out Disney World’s Newest Spiked Slushy — The Rum Blossom!

Since Pandora — The World of AVATAR opened last year in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, we’ve been watching the treats at the land’s beverage and snack stand, Pongu Pongu.

Pongu Pongu’s signature snack, Pongu Lumpia, is a pineapple and cream cheese-filled spring roll. It’s been a love/hate snack since some people don’t like the texture — but I think it’s great! But something that does tend to be a big favorite among many is the Night Blossom. This frozen beverage layers apple with desert pear and limeade and is topped with passion fruit popping pearls.

They keep trying to convince me that the Pandoran Sunrise at Satu’li Canteen is Pandora’s signature drink. But, trust me. It’s totally the Night Blossom.

It’s bright and beautiful, both in color and flavor, and we’ve recommended it from the first as one of the best non-alcoholic drink options not only in Animal Kingdom, but in the whole of Disney World.

Wait… did I say “non-alcoholic”? Yes I did… because it is. But NOW, you can also order up a RUM BLOSSOM, which adds Bacardi Superior Rum to the drink!
