Disney dropped news yesterday that a whole bunch of restaurants around the parks and resorts are reopening soon!
Yachtsman Steakhouse, Toledo, Columbia Harbour House, and Pizzafari all got reopening dates! With those dates coming up soon, we’re checking out the menus to see what’s changed and which old favorites we can still order! Pizzafari’s menu got a LOT of changes, so let’s break down what’s going to be different at this family favorite restaurant in Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
Pizzafari is known for some crowd-pleasing Italian-style food like pizza and Caesar salad, along with fun desserts like themed cupcakes! They made several changes to their menu recently, including adding some drinks and entrees and getting rid of a couple old ones!
Let’s look at the drinks first. The Mandarin Orange Lemonade and Mandarin Orange Vodka Lemonade were both removed from the menu.
These have been replaced by a new Blue Lagoon Lemonade, which comes with gummy worms in the drink! You can also get it with Rum or with a souvenir Glow Cube inside! The regular lemonade costs $5.49, and with Rum added it’s $11. For the souvenir Glow Cube drinks, the regular version is $8.49, and the alcoholic version is $14.
Most of the other drinks have stayed the same, except the Copa Merlot was removed as well.
For the entrees, Pizzafari got rid of the Shrimp Flatbread dish and replaced it with a new Chicken Parmesan Sandwich! This sandwich has Breaded Chicken topped with Marinara and Provolone on Ciabatta Bread and is served with a side Caesar salad. It’s $10.99.
The other entrees — including the signature pizza, of course! — stayed the same on Pizzafari’s menu.
On the plant-based menu, Pizzafari replaced the Sicilian-style Pizza Slice that had plant-based sausage with a new Greens and Grains Salad, which has Mixed Greens topped with Garbanzo Beans, White Beans, Red Onions, Pepperoncini, Kalamata Olives, Tomatoes, Quinoa, and Green Goddess Dressing. The new salad costs $9.99.
For the sides, the Tomato Basil Soup was removed from the menu. Instead, Pizzafari added a Cuties Mandarin as a side option! The Cuties Mandarin replaced the GoGo Squeeze Applesauce as the side in the Kids’ Meals.
They were replaced with the Spaghetti and Meatball Cupcake, which we’ve seen before! The Spaghetti and Meatball Cupcake has Vanilla Cake with Chocolate–Chip Cannoli filling, topped with Cherry Sauce, Vanilla Buttercream Spaghetti, and a Chocolate Doughnut “Meatball.” It costs $5.99.
That’s about it for the big changes! If you want to take a look at the full menu or some of our past reviews, you can head to our Pizzafari page!
