Animal Kingdom has quickly emerged as one of the most popular Disney World Parks with the open of Pandora. While this park used to be considered a half day park, that is no longer the case as some of the best attractions in Disney World are located right in Animal Kingdom.
So, since you are going to be spending a full day and possibly more at Animal Kingdom we thought it would be nice to have a guide to the best Animal Quick Service Dining Options!
Located in Dinoland U.S.A. you will find Restaurantsaurus. If you are looking for your classic burger, chicken strips and fries, then this is your spot. My personal favorite item is the Impossible™ Spicy Southwestern Burger. It has a delicious Chipotle sauce!
If you are not in the mood for burgers, Restaurantsaurus has a cobb salad and fried breaded shrimp.
At Pizzafari, you have yes, you guessed it, Pizza. Lots and lots of Pizza. But recently Pizzafari added some new options that are on the menu for those of you who aren’t craving Pizza. You can also grab baked ziti or Fettucini Alfredo, plus check on their Family dining options which are a pretty good value whether you are on the dining plan or not.
4. Flame Tree Barbeque
This used to be our #1 go to before the recent expansion of numerous dining options to Animal Kingdom. There are a ton of delicious options to choose from including Ribs, Chicken and Pulled Pork. I personally enjoy the Smokehouse Chicken Salad which includes Pulled Chicken on topped Mixed Greens Salad tossed with Smoked Cheddar Cheese, Diced Granny Smith Apples, Cornbread Croutons, Crispy Onions and Barbecue Ranch Dressing. If you are in the mood for a nice hearty meal try the Ribs, Chicken and Pulled Pork Sampler.
For the kids, there is a chicken drumstick, hamburger or hot dog. All served with a Cuties Mandarin, GoGo squeeZ® Applesauce and choice of Small Lowfat Milk or Small Dasani Water or soda upon request.

3. Harambe Market
Located in Africa, near the Safari, you will find the Harambe Market. This was my personal favorite Animal Kingdom quick service dining option until they got rid of my favorite item, Chicken Tikka Masala. Although I am slightly hurt, they still have some pretty incredible choices including Beef & Lamb Gyro, Chicken Gyro, Chicken Bowl and more. For vegetarians, they have a roasted vegetable bowl which I had on the last visit and it is pretty delicious.
For the kiddos, the choices are a Barbeque Rib or Corn Dog, all served with a Cuties Mandarin, GoGo squeeZ® Applesauce and choice of Small Lowfat Milk or Small Dasani Water or soda upon request.

2. Yak & Yeti Local Food Cafes
If you are in the mood for Asian Cuisine the Yak & Yeti Food Cafes is a pretty delicious choice. Located right by Kali River Rapids, don’t get this place confused with the Yak & Yeti Restaurant, this is just the quick service stop right next door. No reservation needed. Our personal favorites are the Honey Sesame Chicken and the Chicken Teriyaki Bowl.
All the meals are served in the classic Chinese Fast Food Boxes. Kids Meals include chicken strips, hamburgers, and Uncrustables.
Bonus Tip * – Breakfast is available at Yak & Yeti Food Cafes if you hit the park early and need a little breakfast. Both the Breakfast Tacos and Bacon & Egg Sandwich are pretty delicious.

1. Satu’li Canteen
Over in Pandora next to Flight of Passage you should stop at the Satu’li canteen as it truly is the Best Animal Kingdom Quick Service Dining Option. There are a ton of options and you can mix and match as you please. It is kind of a Chiopotle like setup where you choose a base, rice, vegetable hash and then top it with fish, chicken or shrimp.
They also have these cheeseburger pods which my kids swear are the greatest thing ever created. In addition, if you are on the dining plan check out one of their extensive beer choices or try out their Dream Walker sangria.
Bonus – Great Hearty Snack Options
Buffalo Chicken Chips from Trilo Bites
We were starving for a quick snack and stopped at Trilo Bites. These buffalo chips, (while not on the snack plan) are quite delicious and worth a visit. Quite possibly the best snack at Animal Kingdom.
Eight Spoon Cafe
