Animal Kingdom’s Africa is a stunning area in the park both visually and culturally. But it’s also home to some seriously delicious Animal Kingdom eats!

From dining with Mickey and friends at the park’s Character Meal at Tusker House to visiting one of our favorite bars in Disney World, to enjoying a Dole Whip (with or without RUM), Animal Kingdom’s Africa has a ton of bragging rights when it comes to food. But all those things I mentioned only scratch the surface, so we’d love it if you’d join us on a Food Safari… I mean, Food Tour in Animal’s Kingdom’s Africa! [Read more…]

Jungle Juice (aka Lilikoi Juice at the Polynesian, aka POG Juice at other spots) has long been a breakfast favorite of mine. And I was over-the-moon excited when I first found it in slushy form a while back at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. It’s the perfect refreshing treat as you’re taking in the exotic sights, sounds, and flavors of this special park.

In case you missed the original buzz, Refillable Popcorn Buckets hit the scene in late June. Guests could purchase a souvenir Popcorn Bucket at select Popcorn Carts around Disney World for $10.00 and have it refilled at any Popcorn Cart on property (no matter where the original Bucket was purchased) for $1.50 for the remainder of the day. [Editor’s Update: Please note, the refill price increased to $1.75 in March 2018.]

What’s The Best Walt Disney World Park for Dining?

There is so much to love about the parks of Walt Disney World.

What’s the Best Disney World Park for Dining?

The rides and attractions. The sense of history — both in the parks and in the memories that we’ve all made in them. The incredible themeing that greets you at every turn.

But of course, what do we love the most? The FOOD!

I’m serious about eating when I’m in Disney parks. And I know you are, too! But which Disney World park is the best when it comes time for eating?

This is a question I get asked a LOT; and it’s always tough to make a choice. Sure — Epcot has the largest number of fantastic restaurants, but there are some snacks that can’t be beat in Magic Kingdom; and the other parks offer some not-to-be-missed items, too.

There are some seriously awesome, edible reasons to visit each park — and I’m going to share some of my favorites with you today!

Get ready, because I want to hear your point of view, too! What’s your favorite Walt Disney World Park for Dining… and why?

Magic Kingdom

Eating your way through Magic Kingdom seems to me to be one part fantasy food, and one part pure nostalgia. It would be hard to imagine not carving out a few days on my menu for some of my favorite stops here!

Nutella and Fruit Waffle Sandwich at Sleep Hollow

For brunch or lunch, I can never pass up the chance to have a Waffle Sandwich at Sleepy Hollow Refreshments. Choose from Nutella (!!!) and Fruit or Spicy Chicken.

Seriously delicious — and enormous. I like to get two and split them among friends for a little variety.

We can’t go very far in this conversation though without discussing [Read more…]
