We’ve added lots of fun and new dining info to our updated e-Book — The DFB Guide to Walt Disney World® Dining 2017. One of my favorite tips in the book is the recommendation of the free tours at the Animal Kingdom Lodge restaurants! Yep, free!
Animal Kingdom Lodge Restaurant Tours
The Animal Kingdom Lodge in Walt Disney World is known for quality table-service restaurants that offer some exotic menu items and exquisite African-themed decor. But there’s a way to explore the restaurants without actually dining in them!
Jiko, Boma, and Sanaa offer half-hour culinary tours each day! These tours cover some of the decor and meaning behind the architecture of the restaurants and also explain certain menu items. You may even get to sample some of the restaurant’s dishes.
When you don’t have time to eat at each restaurant, these free tours will allow you to take in the detailed atmosphere without an Advance Dining Reservation.
Stop by the Front Desk to inquire about the current schedule and meeting spots. These restaurant tours usually take place at 4 pm most days of the week, and, as far as we know, you don’t have to be staying at the resort to take the tour.
Find more info on great free food-related events and many other budget planning tips for eating in Walt Disney World in The DFB Guide to Walt Disney World® Dining 2019!
