6. Eight Spoon Cafe
Another snack spot that can easily pass for a place to get a light meal, Eight Spoon Cafe is located in Discovery Island in Animal Kingdom. This little food stand makes delicious mac and cheese dishes available to all hungry guests. While the original mac and cheese is probably not quite enough to qualify as a meal, the pulled pork version is much more filling and comes in at $6.49.
7. The Smiling Crocodile
Just across the way from Eight Spoon is a sandwich lover’s paradise: The Smiling Crocodile. This is another small kiosk and doesn’t look like much from outside, despite the tasty, open-faced sandwiches that are served out of its little window. We recommend the $5.29 Turkey BLT and we highly suggest bringing in a bag of chips or some fruit to eat on the side.
Quite possibly the best toppings bar in all of Disney World can be found at Restaurantosaurus in Animal Kingdom. This bar includes the typical lettuce, tomatoes, and pickles, but also adds in grilled onions and peppers as well as mushrooms. Again, the toppings can be used to stretch your food, meaning one $12 meal will likely feed two if you play your cards right. Alternatively, you could order kids cheeseburgers and use the toppings bar to fill them out, but be sure to ask for your meal sans pail or you’ll pay extra.
