Disney’s Animal Kingdom is one of my favorite parks to snack…or really just to eat in general. There are quite a number of adventurous food options for people looking for exotic flavor combinations. I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite snacks in Animal Kingdom and where you can find them. Let me know your favorite snacks in the comments below.
Grilled Curry Corn on the Cob at Harambe Fruit Market (Africa)
I LOOOVE this corn. The corn is grilled and dipped in butter and then sprinkled with this amazing curry spice. It’s a light and healthy snack option that I just can’t resist every time that I am in the park. This yummy treat seems to be just as popular with other park goers. Those who are unaware of it always ask me where I got the corn from when they see me walking around with this yellow stick of goodness.

Mr. Kamal’s Seasoned Fries at Mr. Kamal’s (Asia)
If you’re like me then you probably get a little tired of the standard french fries that are served at most quick service locations around Walt Disney World property. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll eat just about any french fry put in front of me, but the fries at Mr. Kamal’s have a little extra zing added to them. These fries are topped with tzatziki salad and sriracha ketchup. My fear was that the tzatziki salad would make the fries a little soggy, but this was not a problem. The sriracha ketchup gave it a little kick. It was only Disney spicy (not really spicy at all). It still offers a flavorful and different twist to traditional french fries.
Pongu Lumpia at Pongu Pongu (Pandora)
This is definitely a unique dessert. It’s a pineapple cream cheese spring roll with sugar sprinkled on top. This is actually pretty sweet. The filling is more cream cheese than it is pineapple, which is my only complaint. It’s still quite tasty and I like the contrast of the crispy outside and the gooey inside. And if sweet isn’t your thing then you could always order the colossal pretzel with beer cheese.
Guava Danish at the Kusafiri Coffee Shop (Africa)
While we’re on the topic of desserts…another great spot to satisfy your sweet tooth is at the Kusafiri Coffee Shop. Here, you’ll find colossal cinnamon rolls, croissants, and assorted danishes. I like the guava danish because it offers a little bit of tart to balance out the sweet. I like that it uses a more unique fruit flavor than what is traditionally found in cheese danishes.
