I don’t know about you, but I like to hit Disney’s Animal Kingdom as soon as it opens in the morning. I grab a quick bagel and coffee at the Kusafari Coffee Shop and Bakery and head for my favorite rides like Expedition Everest and Kali River Rapids
By about 11 am, I am usually done with my “must-do” rides, and am ready for a late morning snack. Where do I head? Well, I check out these Top 5 Animal Kingdom Snack Spots:
Yak and Yeti – This counter service location in Animal Kingdom’s Asia offers some truly unique meal options, and their snacks are special too! Grab an egg roll, or a basket of fries, or some banana pudding or chocolate mousse to satisfy your sweet tooth. Beer (Bud Light and Safari Amber) as well as assorted soft drinks are available here as well
Kusafari Coffee Shop and Bakery – Over in Africa you will find this “sweet spot” that offers breakfast items as well as some delicious fresh baked goods like srownies, white chocolate elephant cupcakes (link), cookies, coffee beverages, and bottled drinks too
Campfire Treats – Camp Mickey/Minnie is a great place for the kids, and it’s a great place to grab a snack too! This kiosk offers funnel cakes, as well as soft serve cones and dishes, floats, worm n’dirt sundaes, and strawberry shortcake
Harambe Fruit Market – This is really more of a fruit stand, it offers apples/oranges/bananas, as well as mixed fruit cups and pineapple bites. Pick up some trail mix or a soft pretzel to boost your energy levels, and don’t forget a frozen lemonade to help beat that Florida heat!
Dino Bite Snacks – If you have worked up an appetite enjoying all that Dinoland has to offer, then head to this snack stand for a fresh hot churro, or an old fashioned hot fudge sundae, waffle cone, or ice cream cooke sandwich! You can always skip the ice cream and enjoy a cookie or chips with a soft drink or coffee too
So what’s the best snack that Animal Kingdom has to offer? Personally, I love the Brownie Paw at Kusafari – thick fudgey brownie base, covered with a chocolate ganache and then topped with a nice thick layer of vanilla buttercream frosting
But, the drinks offered at the various kiosks and carts in the Park are a close second – a brownie and a margarita may not sound like they go together, but trust me, they do.
But everyone has their favorites, so I would love to know what YOU think!

There are so many amazing restaurants at Walt Disney World to try out, but sometimes you don’t want a full meal, or sometimes you might get hungry in between meals and need a little something to get you through. This is where a snack might come in handy, and if you should happen to be in Epcot when the craving hits, then I highly suggest you check out these
Top 5 Epcot Snack Spots:
Sunshine Seasons – Head over to The Land pavilion in Future World and enjoy some goodies from this food-court style counter service eatery that features fresh salads, meats, sandwiches and Asian fare – all of which feature items grown on site at the Land’s greenhouses. For snacks you can choose from a large assortment of baked goods, including cookies, cupcakes, cheesecake, pies, and the always delicious strawberry shortcake. Assorted bottled beverages as well as coffee drinks are available here too
Karamell-Kuche – Located in the Germany area of the World Showcase, this spot features delicious baked goods and tons and tons of Werther’s caramel. Whenever I have visited this spot, the line has been out the door, and with good reason – their treats are irresistable! The Caramel Corn is one of their specialties, and is made fresh throughout the day, as are the caramel drizzled cookies, caramel apples, and assortment of chocolate/caramel covered items including grapes, pineapple, and pretzels. Even non caramel fans are sure to find something they will devour here!
Disney’s Boardwalk has underwent food updates. Many of the resorts and restaurant in the area have under went menu changes to provide you more yummy offerings.
A new “Extreme” section of the menu at ESPN Club on Disney’s Boardwalk presents dishes fans may not expect to fins in a sports bar, from a secret Ahi tuna burger to an “Over/Under” burger topped with lobster salad to a “Chicago Meets Pittsburgh” extreme roast beef sandwich Forty craft beers also have joined the restaurant’s menu.
The BoardWalk Bakery closed in January for refurbishment and is scheduled to reopen later this spring with an expanded section of baked goods, soups and sandwiches, along with refillable beverage station. In the meantime, check out the nearby pizza window which recently began serving a new vegetarian pizza featuring fresh-roasted garlic in olive oil, oven-roasted mushrooms and spinach.
Hurricane Hanna’s, the casual eatery located just steps away from Disney’s Beach Club Villas on the shore of Stormalong Bay, has become Hanna’s Waterside Bar & Grill. This re-imagined poolside retreat has a new menu and sit-down bar area.
The nearby Martha’s Vineyard lounge has enhanced its menu with a “Taste of Cape May Cafe,” featuring favorites as Cape May Cafe’s Seafood Chowder and Clam Bake Bucket.
