Guests trekking through Asia at Disney’s Animal Kingdom park can now stop and enjoy the new Thirsty River Bar and Trek Snacks near the entrance of Expedition Everest.The Trek Snacks menu varies throughout the day, with pastries in the morning and more substantial bites such as sushi and sandwiches in the afternoon and evening. Breakfast pastries include assorted muffins and Danish, croissants and an indulgent chocolate twist. Healthful snacks offered include fresh fruit, crudité and hummus, edamame and an Asian noodle salad.
The Thirsty River Bar represents the type of cultural collision that has become a hallmark of the villages that serve as base camps for Everest trekkers. This location for climbers returning from their ascent features themed specialty cocktails, such as the Khumbu Icefall, Himalayan Ghost and Durbar Margarita. Non-alcoholic beverages also are available, including the tropical-flavored Flying Yak and the Pink Lotus.
The new snack bar will also be a convenient location for those viewing the new Rivers of Light nighttime show when it opens this spring.
