African Cuisine

If you’d rather not leave your resort for dinner for one or more of the evenings you stay in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge on your Florida vacation, you’ll be happy to know there are two excellent dining options for you to choose from.


How about an African breakfast buffet to start your day of adventure in the Animal Kingdom? Choose from fresh fruit, carved ham, oatmeal, eggs, potatoes and African pastries. Dinner is also served up buffet-style at this vibrant family-friendly African restaurant. Feast on soups, salads, vegetarian dishes, African breads and a tantalizing selection of desserts. Meats and seafood are cooked on a wood-fire rotisserie grill in an open kitchen.

  • $15-$35.99
  • Breakfast and Dinner


Tempt your tastebuds with one of many imaginative appetizers like the maize tamales with truffle oil, herbs and spices or the cinnamon-spiced beef roll with vegetable-banana dip. Order from the largest South African wine list in the United States before ordering your main course. Good luck deciding from the global cuisine! Will you try the oven-baked garlic chicken tagine with grapefruit or the banana leaf-steamed Chilean sea bass with asparagus puree, apples and mushrooms? There are vegetarian options to choose from as well, including the mouthwatering curried potato and corn samosas.
