Top Five Snacks at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Plus a Few of Our Favorite Drinks

Disney's Animal Kingdom is one of our favorite parks for food, second only perhaps to Epcot. While you can eat and drink your way around the World (Showcase) at Epcot, the flavors you'll encounter at the Animal Kingdom range from simple to exotic, but always delicious.

And, with the opening of Pandora - The World of Avatar on May 27, we can add "out of this world" to the list of flavor profiles.

What's your favorite snack at Disney's Animal Kingdom?What's your favorite snack at Disney's Animal Kingdom?

Today we're checking out the top five snacks at Disney's Animal Kingdom along with a few of our favorite drinks. We'll even check out a few of the new drinks coming to Pandora's Pongu Pongu!

Let's dig in!

OK, so most of the year it's almost unbearably hot and humid at the Animal Kingdom, but sometimes you hit a perfect weather day (usually in the late fall or early winter) when a baked mac and cheese dish sounds perfect. And when that day happens you'll want to head over to the Eight Spoons Cafe for one of their THREE baked mac and cheese dishes.

You can choose from mac and cheese, mac and cheese with pulled pork, or mac and cheese with shrimp and sweet chili sauce. It's the perfect comfort food! And if you're looking for the best bang for your buck, we suggest going with the mac and cheese with either pulled pork or shrimp. All three items are Disney Dining Plan snack credits but you'll get more food with the mac and cheese with toppings.

And, if you're looking for the Eight Spoons Cafe, it's a kiosk located in Discovery Island near Asia. Check out this video from our friends at the Disney Food Blog too!

Next up we're heading over to the Flame Tree Barbecue, home to some of the best counter service meals in all of Disney World. Today though we're just talking about French fries, specifically the French Fries with Pulled Pork and Cheese!

This dish is also a snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan (!!!) but you could totally make it a meal. Imagine, a plate of crispy fries topped with charred pulled pork, barbecue sauce, and melted cheese. Also, this is a messy dish. Grab a fork and lots of napkins before you dig in!

If you're craving some serious carbs, we suggest heading over to Pizzafari but not to order pizza. Instead of pizza you'll want to order some of their Garlic Knots! These are large, doughy knots coated in olive oil, garlic, herbs, and cheese. They're served with a side of marinara sauce, but for an extra $1 you can get garlic butter dipping sauce (yes, please!)

Once again, you'll find these knots are a good deal and just one snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan! Add in a side salad and you have a nice lunch.

Moving on to some sweet snacks (you didn't think we'd only be talking savory snacks, did ya?)...did you know that you can get Dole Whip at the Animal Kingdom?

Dole Whip!Dole Whip!

Yep, it's true. Head over to Tamu Tamu Refreshments and order yourself a "pineapple soft serve" which is also known as Dole Whip! You can get it plain, or topped with dark rum or coconut rum (we recommend the rum-topped version for grownups!).

Our final stop for snacks is Zuri's Sweets Shop. This candy shop is home to a great bakery case full of sweet treats but one of our favorite treats: the animal caramel apples. These sweet snacks are created with Granny Smith apples, topped with caramel and chocolate.

At Zuri's you'll find a variety of animal apples including elephants and monkeys. Be sure to ask the cast member to cut the apples for you - it makes for easier eating!

Sometimes you just want a fun, refreshing grownup drink right? We suggest stopping at Restaurantosaurus for the Cretaceous Cooler. This sweet, cold, grownup beverage is made with Parrot Bay Coconut Rum, Midori, and pineapple juice and it'll hit the spot on a hot afternoon!

Also, it's a super cool color:

Over at the Nomad Lounge you'll find a menu full of great cocktails, but the Hightower Rocks is a favorite. This drink is a mix of Casa Dragones Blanco Tequila, Watermelon, Sweet and Sour, and Lime Juice. Order this drink and a couple small plates and you have the ingredients for a perfect afternoon break.

And finally, when Pandora opens on May 27 guests will have a variety of drinks to enjoy at Pongu Pongu (the local bar), including the signature non-alcoholic drink, the Night Blossom. This cool beverage is made with limeade combined with apple and desert pear flavors finished off with passion fruit boba balls. It sounds refreshing and looks gorgeous!

Other beverages at Pongu Pongu include the Mo'ara Margarita, Mo'ara High Country Ale, and Hawkes' Grog Ale.

You'll be able to enjoy all the beverages at Pongu Pongu when it opens May 27!

These are just a few of our favorite snacks at Disney's Animal Kingdom. We'd love to hear your must-eat snacks at the Animal Kingdom. Leave us a comment and let us know what to try.

Many thanks to the Disney Food Blog for use of their photos.
