If you are looking to have a wonderful yet inexpensive meal at Walt Disney World Resort, Animal Kingdom park may be just the park to do that. While all 4 Disney World parks have great quick-service dining options, Animal Kingdom might just have the best. Honestly, I love the quick-service options at Disney’s Animal Kingdom park. You really will not have to sacrifice any flavor or quality to stay inside your budget. Let’s run through my favorite inexpensive options and see you you can dine on a budget!
Yak & Yeti Local Food Cafes- If you are craving the flavors of Yak & Yeti but didn’t snag an advanced reservation, you can always order from Yak & Yeti’s quick-service counter! That’s right, Yak & Yeti Local Cafes is a quick-service counter! It can be found in Asia next to Yak & Yeti. This location serves items such as Honey Chicken, Vegetable Tikka Masala, and Korean Fried Chicken Sandwich. You can even order a mini Mango Pie for dessert! Cheeseburgers and Chicken Strips are also options on the kid’s menu.
Flame Tree BBQ- This restaurant has to be one of the very best values on Disney property! With entrees such as St. Louis Ribs and Baked Macaroni and Cheese with Pulled Pork, it’s easy to see why guests love it. Guests love it more when they realize dining here is only $16.29 per adult or under! I personally enjoy the Ribs and Chicken Combo ($15.49). I also enjoy the Mandarin Orange Vodka Lemonade offered here to guests 21 and up.
Satu’li Canteen– This brings me to my personal favorite quick-service restaurant at Animal Kingdom, Satu’li Canteen. I love the theming, indoor/outdoor atmosphere, and the food found here. The menu is based on popular foods from Pandora, World of Avatar. Popular dishes here are the custom “bowls” guests create by choosing a base, protein and sauce, and Cheeseburger Pods. My favorite item here has to be the famous Blueberry Cheesecake Mousse, pictured above.
While Animal Kingdom Park has some wonderful table-service dining options, I like to save my money and dine at one of these locations instead!
