Animal Kingdom Dining
The Animal Kingdom at Disney World has a bunch of places to eat. There is a nice selection of counter service and snack locations as well as a couple of table service restaurants. Most of the dining options at the Animal Kingdom offer American cuisine.
There are currently 2 table service restaurants in the Animal Kingdom. There will be a new Asian themed restaurant opening soon. I STRONGLY recommend making reservations if you wish to dine at one of the table service locations. Do not expect to be seated at a table service restaurant without advanced reservations (ADR). You may make your reservations months prior to your arrival.
Donald's Safari Breakfast at Tusker House is a Character Dining opportunity in the Animal Kingdom. Donald’s Breakfastosaurus at Restaurantosaurus was discontinued in 2007.
This is one of the few places in Walt Disney World where you will find Donald, so if you or someone in your party is a big Donald Duck fan, go ahead and try it out.
A couple of years ago we went at Christmas time to the Breakfastasaurus and had a blast! Mickey, Donald, Goofy, and Pluto were in attendance and decked out in their Holiday outfits. It was also my son’s birthday. They made him stand on a pot-belly stove and the whole place sang Happy Birthday to him. What a special memory for him. Oh – and the food was good too!
Please make all of your dining arrangements well in advance of your check-in date. All dining reservations can be made by calling:
Counter and Quick service dining options are scattered throughout the Animal Kingdom. You won’t need to hunt down any of the animals here!
Tip: Choose your meal times wisely to avoid crowds. Eat a late lunch or early dinner to minimize the amount of time you spend in line at a restaurant.
Since the Animal Kingdom usually closes earlier than the other parks, plan your meals accordingly. If we plan on eating at a table service restaurant on our Animal Kingdom day, we try to choose an early time at Donald’s Breakfastosaurus or else a later dinner after the park closes – possible at another park or one of the resort restaurants.
There are many snack locations throughout the park. I am sure you will find something you like.
