Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge has 1 quick service restaurant, set up like a food court, called The Mara. Here you can find breakfast, which starts at 6 am, lunch and dinner.

As is the rest of the resort, The Mara is also beautifully themed. It certainly does not feel like you are walking into an ordinary food court here!

The quick “grab and go” station:

Just as most quick service locations have, a refillable drink station. If you are on one of the Disney Dining Plans, you can get your refillable mug here!

Now, let’s talk about what you really want to know…how’s the food?!? I’m glad you asked. Seeing the menu, with African Stew, I was just unsure if the African flair would be a little much for me. To my surprise, I liked everything I tried. I have stayed at this resort several times, and mostly eaten breakfast here with my family. Most recently, I visited here with 2 of my friends, and they both liked it as much as I did. Here is what we had for lunch:

The African Stew, with Beef, Turkey, Ham, Carrots, Potatoes, Peas, Chickpeas, and Raisins served over Basmati Rice, which was really tasty!

Barbecue Chicken Flatbread – Tamarind Barbecue Sauce, Cheddar Cheese, Roasted Chicken, Corn, Red Onions, and Cilantro. This is one of my favorite flat breads on property now!

And you know me, I have to have a dessert! I finally tried the famous Zebra Domes! I’m not sure exactly what I was expecting, maybe more of a cake pop without the stick? That is not at all what it is, just FYI! It is really good, but quite a different texture. It is Amarula Liqueur mousse covered in a white chocolate ganache (very panna cotta like) covering, drizzled in chocolate.
