Top 5 Snacks at Disney’s Animal Kingdom


Adventure is out there!

This may be the tag-line of UP, but it also perfectly describes Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Except for this post, maybe we should change it to “Good Food is Out There.”

All Disney Dining plans include at least one snack option, and snack options are plentiful throughout the parks. I previously shared my Top 5 Snacks at Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Hollywood Studios. Let’s stampede on over to Animal Kingdom for the final post of this series.

Top 5 Snacks at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Buffalo Chicken Waffle Slider – Trilo-Bites (DinoLand USA)

Okay, is there anything about this that doesn’t sound delicious? While I have not personally enjoyed this snack yet, you can bet that I will be making a bee-line for Tril-Bites the next time I visit Animal Kingdom. $5.49

Chicken Fried Rice – Yak and Yeti Local Food Cafe (Asia)

I like snacks that can work double as a small meal. The portion of chicken fried rice served up at Yak and Yeti is generous and can definitely hold you over to lunch while you are waiting in line for Expedition Everest. $3.99

Ice Cream Float – Anandapur Ice Cream Truck (Asia)

Of course ice cream floats are amazing, and perfect for hot day at Animal Kingdom. However, this selection is more about the atmosphere. I mean, have you seen this truck?! Panels of art cover the bus and show the history, animals, and culture of Anandapur. Another cool detail – Anandapur means “place of many delights” in Sanskrit, and you are sure to be delighted by the sweet treats offered up here!

Baked Three Cheese Pasta – Eight Spoon Cafe (Discovery Island)

I don’t think you can ever go wrong with pasta. And pasta covered in three different kids of cheese? To me that is just no brainer. This savory snack will help fill you up on your adventures. Well, at least until your next pit stop. $4.69

Bugs Sundae – Dino-Bite Snacks (DinoLand USA)

Do you remember those pudding cups with gummy worms from when you were a kid? Well, this is kind of like that, but with ice cream! Talk a walk on the wild side and relive your childhood with this fun and delicious snack. $5.19

Special Mention

I am really trying to keep these lists to top 5 only, but sometimes it is really hard! For example, I HAVE to mention that you can get a Dole Whip at Animal Kingdom. Yep, that’s right – you don’t have to keep your pineapple obsession to just Magic Kingdom. Head over to Tamu Tamu Refreshments in Africa and enjoy the sweet pineapple bliss.

I also want to mention, that Terra Treats in Discovery Island offers a whole menu of gluten free pastries and snacks.

Adventuring around Disney’s Animal Kingdom can be exhausting and you can definitely work up an appetite. Whether you are craving something sweet or something savory, these snacks will help you push through and enjoy your day.
