Important Info:

  • Ducks and other birds are known to visit the outdoor seating area and can be very “friendly” in an attempt to acquire some of your meal; as with all dining locations in the Animal Kingdom park, guests are strongly encouraged not to feed the animals.
  • Condiments, napkins and flatware are available in several of the seating areas, not at the front counter.
  • The Animal Kingdom park does not allow straws or lids to be used at counter service locations. If tippy trays are an issue for you, you may be better off buying your beverage in a bottle from a cart elsewhere in the park.
  • There are several different seating areas for this location. The most visible are those directly to the left of the counter. However, if you follow the path toward the water, you’ll find seating with better views.
  • Be sure to check out the themeing. Yes, those are depictions of animals eating other animals that you see throughout the seating area! It’s the Circle of Life theme

Famous Dishes: Smoked 1/2 Chicken, St. Louis Ribs, Pork Sandwich (yum!)
