Last year, Walt Disney World announced that Rafiki’s Planet Watch in Animal Kingdom would close seasonally. That means when the park is less busy, they’ll close this part of it down to save money. Disney World enjoys being somewhat ambiguous like that. So that was the bad news. The good news was that when this area of Animal Kingdom re-opened, it came with a new experience for guests. That would be the Animation Experience at Conservation Station.
After you take a spin on Expedition Everest, you may be interested in grabbing a bite to eat, or maybe you’ll need a drink! Or perhaps you are soaked after getting off of Kali River Rapids, and you want to sit a minute and dry off? You can accomplish either of these if you grab a bite at Yak and Yeti Local Food Cafés while touring Disney’s Animal Kingdom. It’s situated right next to the entrance of Kali River Rapids in the Asia section of the park. Here in our Yak and Yeti Local Food Cafés review, we’ll tell you about our dining experience at this counter service restaurant.
Flame Tree Barbecue is a counter service location at Disney’s Animal Kingdom that serves up various barbecue dishes for lunch and dinner. The meat on most entrées will be smoked, rather than grilled. You’ll find the restaurant located in the Discovery Island area of Animal Kingdom. Here in our Flame Tree Barbecue review, we’ll cover our dining experience. The review will include our thoughts on the restaurant’s theme, food, and that great view you can get of Expedition Everest! As usual, we’ll have plenty of pictures to go along with the review.
Restaurantosaurus is a counter service location at Disney’s Animal Kingdom that features some fairly standard American fare for lunch and dinner. You’ll find it located within the DinoLand U.S.A area of Animal Kingdom. Here in our Restaurantosaurus review we’ll cover our dining experience from a recent trip. The review will include our thoughts on the restaurant’s theming, food and anything else that comes to mind. As usually, we’ll have plenty of pictures to go along with the review.
One of the great aspects of dining at Disney World is the ability to eat foods and experience flavors that you wouldn’t normally find where you live and eat day to day. I’m not sure about you, but we certainly get into food ruts in our daily lives and find Disney to be a place where we can branch out. Here in our Tusker House review, we’ll talk about a meal that fits that bill nicely.
Tusker House is a character buffet within Animal Kingdom. In addition to the food, here in our Tusker House review we’ll cover the atmosphere, décor and character interactions. We’ll provide plenty of photos of the food from the buffet line and of course, the characters.
Did you know there are over 300 restaurants in all of Disney World? And if you split some of the different meals in the restaurants, there are lots of variations!
This is essentially a catalog of all our Disney World restaurant reviews. You won’t find a lot of detail and information on this particular page. The details are in the individual reviews. Our restaurant reviews feature pictures of the restaurants and food, coupled with our thoughts on the food, overall experience, atmosphere and if we think the restaurant is a compelling enough value to make it worth it to eat at.
The Animal Kingdom FastPass system functions much like that of Epcot. It features a tiered FastPass system where the top two attractions are both in the Pandora – World of AVATAR land. Getting your FastPass selections right here can be the difference between spending half your day waiting in line and something more pleasant. Flight of Passage is the headliner attraction here, but you can’t forget about some of the popular FastPass tier 2 attraction too.
When Pandora – The World of Avatar opened in 2017, Animal Kingdom received a lot of attention for the two new signature attractions that came with it. However, one overlooked aspect of the land that doesn’t get enough focus is the dining that came with it. The new dining came in the form of Satu’li Canteen, a counter service restaurant. Here in our Satu’li Canteen review, we’ll discuss the theme, atmosphere, food and anything else we think might be relevant (and sometimes not).
