Get ready for a tasty adventure at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, as Pizzafari and other restaurants in the park are serving up new offerings for the summer.
Starting July 31, guests can choose between the restaurant’s classic quick-service experience, or make a reservation for the brand-new Pizzafari Family-Style Dining Experience.
When you arrive at the restaurant, make a stop by the podium to check in. Once you place your drink orders, you’ll be seated in one of two dining rooms that have been designated for this new experience.
Once there, you can enjoy a selection of family-style plates delivered to your table: two appetizers (Caprese Salad and Caesar Salad), along with three entrees, including chicken, pasta, and pizza dishes, and close things out with a sweet dessert.
Pizzafari Family-Style Dining will be offered to guests between 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. daily starting July 31, and will cost $19.99 for guests ages 10 and older, and $11.99 for guests ages 3-9, including non-alcoholic beverages and tax. Beer and wine will be available for adults as a separate purchase.
This experience also counts as one QSR redemption on the Disney Dining Plan. Reservations are available now, and can be made online or over the phone at 407-WDW-DINE.
In addition to this new experience, Pizzafari has also changed up their quick-service menu. The classic round pizzas are back, and guests can enjoy a freshly-baked cheese, pepperoni, vegetable, or sausage and pepperoni pizza. The Shrimp Flatbread with roasted shrimp, tomato, red pepper, Alfredo sauce, pesto, and greens is also still available.
Each of these options can be paired with a small Caesar Salad or a Caesar Salad with chicken. A basket of Garlic Knots with cheese and marinara is also on the menu, as well as the Cannoli Cake – a slice of chocolate cake with chocolate chip cannoli filling, topped with chocolate ganache and a mini cannoli filled with ricotta cheese and chocolate chips.
Next door at Tiffins, a new two-course lunch menu has debuted. This new menu includes your choice of appetizer and entrée, or entrée and dessert.
Appetizer options include an Apple Walnut Salad or Spiced Chickpea Falafel, and main course selections include Wagyu Beef Tagine, Paella, and Roasted Chicken Breast. For dessert, guests can enjoy a dessert duo of South American Chocolate Ganache and Guava Mousse.
This lunch menu is $35 per person plus tax and gratuities, and counts as two TSR redemptions on the Disney Dining Plan. The two-course lunch can be enjoyed from 11 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. daily, and reservations can be made online or over the phone.
Adventure and delicious new bites are out there!
