We were excited to tell you about the brand new Gardens kiosk at Disney’s Animal Kingdom last week, which caters to guests with allergies and special dietary concerns. The new information station debuted over the weekend — and today, we have photos for you!
But in addition to the Gardens, guests who prefer a vegetarian menu will find some great new vegetarian options in the park, too. We’ve reviewed two new options today for you!
New Gardens Allergy Information Kiosk
The Gardens kiosk opened for business on Sunday, and it looks like a real winner. It’s another great step in Disney’s commitment to being a great destination for guests special dietary needs or restrictions.
The hub, located centrally on Discovery Island near Flame Tree Barbecue and the entrance to It’s Tough to Be a Bug, serves to educate guests about the top eight food allergens.
Cast members are available to advise guests with food allergies on the best places within Animal Kingdom to eat.
But it’s more than just a great place for advice. Guests can stop by the handy booth for snack items that are free from the most common food allergens!
In addition to prepackaged snacks like Lundmind’s Rice Chips and Rocky Mountain Caramel Popcorn, guests can also purchase some tasty gluten-free, vegan treats made by Babycakes NYC!
There’s even a gluten-free beer — Omission Lager Gluten-Free!
Mr. Kamal’s Offers New Vegetarian Options
, one of our favorite kiosks known for delicious vegetarian options, is temporarily closed. But never fear, you can get their refreshing Noodle Salad and Edamame across the way at Mr. Kamal’s!
We’ve previously loved this little stop for amazing boneless wings. But at present, they’re serving up some delicious vegetarian fare.
We tried the Falafel Sandwich, which is served on a Pita with Lettuce, Tomato, and a Tahini-Based Sauce. It comes with chips, but you can substitute apple slices if you’d like! It was fresh and delicious.
Many Disney fans love the Samosas (pea and potato turnovers) served at Sanaa and Tusker House. Now, you can also get them at Mr. Kamal’s, served with a Raisin and Carrot Slaw and Mango Chutney for dipping!
With the emphasis on accommodating guests with special dietary needs and the introduction of some additional vegetarian options, Animal Kingdom continues to carve out a spot as an interesting dining destination in its own right!
