How about a cinnamon roll so big it can feed more than two people? That’s what you can find at Kusafiri Coffee Shope and Bakery in Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s Africa. This cinnamon roll is fresh and delicious, with plenty of icing. Whether for breakfast or a snack later in the day, this cinnamon roll will disappear quickly because it’s so yummy!

I don’t know about you, but I love just about anything that has buffalo sauce. These chips are the perfect buffalo sauce, chicken, chives, and bleu cheese combination with a great crunch from the tortilla chips. You won’t want to share these, but you definitely could!

1 – Ginger Slaw Dog– Caravan Road, Asia

This is a delicious mini-sausage with pickled ginger slaw. It is a great option when you are looking for a quick snack, but aren’t looking for a heavy meal.

Christy Caby

Hi! I’m Christy, and I am a wife and mother of 2 young boys (ages 5 and 2). I first fell in love with Disney when my mom took me when I was a child. After that I proceeded to go to WDW for my senior trip with my friends, and I completed a year in the Disney College Program (working in merchandise at Mickey’s of Hollywood at Disney’s Hollywood Studios). I shared my love of Disney with my now husband and sucked him in. He proposed at Disney, we honeymooned at Disney, we started bringing our boys before they were born and then as early as 8 weeks old. We then continued to vacation to Walt Disney World 2-3 times per year. We decided that what makes more sense than just moving to Orlando so that we could live the Disney life and be here for all of our favorite events and seasons every year. That is exactly what we did! Now we are at the parks a couple times a week and go for most events and major holidays. We can’t get enough and get to experience Disney in a whole different way. I love to share this love and passion for all things Disney with the world and hope that I can help others appreciate the magic that Walt Disney World has to offer!
