The BEST Snacks You Need to Try in Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park is a beautiful place to explore. We love to spend time in the Disney Park for many reasons. We love to ride on popular attractions such as Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain, Kilimanjaro Safaris, and Avatar Flight of Passage. Relaxation is also easy in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Festival of the Lion King in the Harambe Theatre, Finding Nemo: The Big Blue… and Beyond! in Theatre in the Wild, and The Animation Experience at Conservation Station allow you to rest your legs without missing out on the fun. We also must remember the incredible animal experiences offered around the Disney Park.

However, spending time in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park can work up an appetite. The great news is that the Disney Park is one of the best dining locations in the Walt Disney World Resort. You may even be spoilt for choice! While we enjoy dining at quick-service and full-service restaurants in the theme park, we also love to snack around. If you want to do the same, here are the snacks you want to take advantage of in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Yeti Sundae

When strolling through Asia, between Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain and Kali River Rapids, you won’t miss the Anandapur Ice Cream Truck. The beautifully decorated truck is our favorite spot to stop and pick up something to help cool off in the heat.

A unique snack to Disney’s Animal Kingdom is the Yeti Sundae. Enjoy chocolate and vanilla soft-serve, topped with blue cake crumbs, sugar, sweet snowflakes, and a chocolate yeti. It’s available at the Anandapur Ice Cream Truck for $6.29.

Mickey Colossal Cinnamon Roll

Are you partial to a cinnamon roll? Then you will want to enjoy a Mickey Colossal Cinnamon Roll during your time in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. It makes the ideal breakfast item when taking advantage of Early Theme Park Entry. You can pick up yours from a selection of locations in the Disney Park for $7.49:

  • Creature Comforts on Discovery Island
  • Kusafiri Coffee Shop & Bakery in Africa
  • Tamu Tamu Refreshments in Africa

Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich

If you’re looking for something different from the Mickey Premium Ice Cream Sandwich, you’ll want to stop by Dino-Bite Snacks in DinoLand U.S.A. The Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich consists of a scoop of ice cream sandwiched between two freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. It can be yours for $7.29.

Baked Macaroni & Cheese

Eight Spoon Cafe on Discovery Island is an excellent quick-service dining location serving savory snacks. If you need something more substantial to snack on, order the Baked Macaroni & Cheese that is served here. It’s available for $4.49. Upgrade your order to include pulled pork for $6.79.

Tropical Breeze with Glow Cube

When you need something to quench your thirst and cool you down, order a Tropical Breeze with Glow Cube from the Flame Tree Barbecue. Available for $8.49, layers of frozen mango and raspberry are served with a souvenir glow cube to take home with you. 

Grilled Corn on the Cob

For something that feels a little healthy, we love to visit the Harambe Fruit Market for fresh Grilled Corn on the Cob. Our preference is with African spices, but it is available without too. Visit earlier in the day, and you can watch your Corn being freshly prepared. Each Corn is $5.29.

Frozen Flamingo

Another frozen drink that can help you to cool off Disney’s Animal Kingdom can be found at the Harambe Market. The Frozen Flamingo is a frozen concoction of strawberry and passion fruit flavors. The non-alcoholic beverage is available for $5.99.

Tiger Tail Twist

If you enjoy the Cheshire Cat Tail in Magic Kingdom Park, you’ll want to try the Tiger Tail Twist in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Available from the Isle of Java on Discovery Island, chocolate chips are twisted between warm pastry layers and topped with orange and black frosting. The Tiger Tail Twist is $5.79 and makes a great early-morning snack.


We love to stop by Pizzafari and grab a helping of their Breadsticks, to snack on before entering Asia or Pandora – The World of Avatar. Enjoy a basket of three freshly baked breadsticks that are topped with cheese and served with marinara sauce. Each serving is $6.99.

Pongu Lumpia

Unique to Pandora – The World of Avatar in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Pongu Lumpia is available throughout the day. The pineapple-cream cheese spring rolls are served at Pongu Pongu. Each serving is $3.79. Will you enjoy them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner?

Cheese Fries with Chili

If you need a more substantial snack, you’ll want to visit Restaurantosaurus in DinoLand U.S.A., to enjoy crispy fries topped with chili and cheddar sauce. Each helping is available for $6.49.

Chicken Fried Rice

Another excellent savory snack in Disney’s Animal Kingdom is available from the Yak & Yeti Local Food Cafes in Asia. The Chicken Fried Rice pot is a filling alternative to ordering an entree from the Disney quick-service restaurant and is available for $7.99.

Simba Sunset

You haven’t visited the Walt Disney World Resort if you haven’t had a helping of DOLEWhip. The good news is that you don’t have to visit Magic Kingdom Park or Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort to enjoy a helping. Stop by Tamu Tamu Refreshments in Africa, and order yourself a Simba Sunset for $5.99. A helping of DOLEWhip Pineapple is served with watermelon, strawberry, and coconut-flavored syrup.
