Jambo! Welcome to our latest What’s New in Disney’s Animal Kingdom! We’re bringing some food photos and lots of cool merchandise. Come along as we explore Animal Kingdom!
There are a TON of new limited-time treats in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and you’ll find them now through April 22nd as part of the Animal Kingdom Tasting Sampler!
Before we dive into specifics about the Animal Kingdom Tasting Sampler, you should know that the specialty items available for purchase throughout the park are available to all guests whether you purchase the official Tasting Sampler or not. [Read more…]
We stopped by Animal Kingdom this week to round up all the latest news for you! We found lots of menu updates and changes and some great new merchandise! So, let’s get to it…
If you’re looking for that adorable Simba Cupcake while you’re in Animal Kingdom, your best bet is to head to Pizzafari since it is no longer in the Creature Comforts bakery case. We did spot the Caramel Mocha and the Lotus Blossom cupcake in the lineup though!
We stopped by Animal Kingdom this week to check out all the new eats around the park. Hope you’re hungry because we have some exciting additions for you!
New Appetizers and Entrees at Tiffins
Tiffins has added a Thai Curry Mussels appetizer with yellow curry, fennel, crostini and Nam Phrik. They’ve also added a Butter Chicken entree that comes served with a Chickpea-Rice Croquette, English Peas, Cauliflower, and Pickled Onion.
Other updates include the option to substitute Wagyu for the Tamarind Braised Short Rib entree, for an additional charge, and the Chicken and Waffles entree has been removed from the menu. [Read more…]
The holidays are REALLY on now in Walt Disney World…
… and we’ve seen the crowds and the attraction wait times to prove it!
Fortunately, in Animal Kingdom there are lots of new and limited time eats (in addition to all sorts of longtime favorites) to serve the increased number of guests.
Because, as we always say, the best thing about more crowds in Disney World is MORE FOOD!!! [Read more…]
We have treat for you today, as we stop by one of our favorite kiosks in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Mr. Kamal’s!
This little cart, located on the path that meanders between Africa and Asia behind the Tree of Life, has been home to some of our favorite vegetarian snacks for ages.
Recently, we enjoyed the falafel here, and it’s pretty decent.
Sadly, the samosas are off the menu for now. But in their place, Mr. Kamal has debuted another snack. Let’s check it out.
Mr. Kamal’s Seasoned Fries
So, I know that when I think of delicious Pan Asian or African food, I immediately think of french fries. Don’t you?
I dunno. Maybe Mr. Kamal’s been vacationing. In Belgium maybe? With a little side trip to Greece? (Hey, if Disney isn’t gonna give us the backstory, we’re just gonna have to make it up ourselves.) [Read more…]
Wow… we’re gearing up for a LOT of new experiences coming to Walt Disney World in the coming weeks. Next month, the new “Happily Ever After” nighttime spectacular will make its debut in Magic Kingdom, and Animal Kingdom will unveil an entire new LAND with Pandora — The World of AVATAR!
But, as always, there is plenty taking place in the here and now in Disney World, too. So, let’s take a look around the parks and resorts to find out What’s New!
Happy weekend! We hope you’re having a wonderful and relaxing spring weekend (and that it’s finally WARM where you live). Now it’s time to sit back, relax, and check out the latest in Disney food news!

Why a Second Edition, You Ask?
Today, we’re heading into Disney’s Animal Kingdom to do what we always do…
A little exploring, accompanied by a little snacking!
And once again, we’re going vegetarian, because that’s a particularly easy thing to do when it comes to snacking at Animal Kingdom. We’ve already learned, in fact , that the focus on providing above par vegetarian options will continue in Animal Kingdom’s upcoming land, Pandora — The World of AVATAR, thanks to a look at the full menu for Satu’li Canteen (the land’s primary dining establishment).
But today we’re winding down a well-traveled path heading from the Africa section of Animal Kingdom into Asia, with a visit to Mr. Kamal’s, which remains one of our favorite kiosks in the park.
Mr. Kamal’s kiosk has proven itself time and time again as a great (and convenient) spot to grab something quick, portable, and vegetarian. The current menu features Hummus served with mini pitas and veggies, Samosa, and falafel, to give you an idea of what to expect. [Read more…]
We’ve talked a bit about where you can find some of your favorite Flame Tree Barbecue foods all over Animal Kingdom while that popular spot is down for refurbishment until April.
But perhaps you’d like to take this time to try something out of the norm on your next Animal Kingdom visit?
Bradley Falls is a little kiosk just across the way from Mr. Kamal’s (you can find both stands on the pathway going from Africa to Asia). Typically, the menu here focuses solely on vegetarian offerings, just like its neighbor across the way, and it’s a good spot to find more unique park treats such as Edamame Beans when Mr. Kamal’s has a line (and in the warmer summer months, it often features our favorite Fresh Fruit Bowl).
But our friend Andy Jackson at Eating (and Drinking) Around the World just spotted a new find at this open-on-peak-days location…
The Thai Pork Sandwich with Asian Cucumber Slaw might be available on your next stroll between the continents! Andy kindly sent us some pictures, so [Read more…]
