Dinner At Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge Victoria Falls Lounge

One of the most surprising meals I had on my last Walt Disney World vacation was dinner at Victoria Falls Lounge at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. Victoria Falls is named for a spot on the Zambezi River that is easily one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world. Billed as a place to "sample suds from South Africa" the booze flows much more readily than Disney's version of the waterfall. I recently stopped by not only for a drink, but a quick meal at this often overlooked location.

Mimosa Flight And Breakfast At Kona Cafe'

Kona Cafe' has long been one of my favorite spots for breakfast at Walt Disney World.

While that dish alone brings in tons of dinners, I'm a fan of exploring the menu here.

Sweet Chicken Teriyaki Bao At YeSake In Disney Springs

Located on the edge of Disney Springs' West Side, YeSake is a kiosk service window that's dishing out Japanese street food.
