7 Amazing Food Carts, Kiosks & Stands at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

You’ve likely heard about or enjoyed signature food at Animal Kingdom from Flame Tree Barbecue, Yak and Yeti Local Food Café, Kusafiri Coffee Shop & Bakery, Zuri’s Sweets Shop, or the enticing selections in the Harambe Market – but we are checking out what appeals to the snack/sweet taste buds. We’ve scoured Animal Kingdom, tasted our way from hut to hut, polled folks around us, and smelled delicious smells. We focused on the easy walk-up carts, kiosks, and stands for quick grab-and-go food. Here is what we believe are the top seven amazing food carts, kiosks, and stands from the numerous awesome selections throughout Animal Kingdom.


1 – Harambe Fruit Market in Africa

This fruit stands located in Africa gets number one on our list simply because it speaks the African theme so much so that we forget we are in the middle of Florida! Fresh whole fruit, assorted chips, mickey pretzel, birthday muffin, grilled corn on the cob, cuties mandarin, and mini babybel snack cheese are just a few of the food options available. The fantastic appearance of this fruit stand perfectly matches the fresh taste when you bite into one of their fruit selections!

2 – Terra Treats in Discovery Island

Looking for a quick bite to eat? You can pick up a slice of cheese or pepperoni and cheese pizza at Terra Treats! You might also find a unique cinnamon roll on the menu! You’ll never know what might pop up on the menu! This is a great place to get a bite to eat without waiting in long lines!

3 – Royal Anandapur Tea Company in Asia

Maybe you want a change-up from the usual Starbucks option on the other side of the park – well, you’ve found your place! Royal Anandapur serves Joffrey’s specialty iced/hot teas and coffee. Some of the hot tea specialties on their long list include the Jasmine (green tea with soft notes of Jasmine), African Celebration (combination of rooibos, rose petals, and herbs, with walnut, almond, vanilla, and Mandarin orange), and Honeybell Orange (white tea with Jasmine and honeybell orange). Plus, they have HUGE donuts – and you know you can’t go wrong with a donut the size of your face!


4 – Tamu Tamu Refreshments in Africa

Don’t judge us – but this dessert-only refreshment location just has to be on this list! Taste a slice of heaven with their Pineapple Crisp Sundae. Or try a pineapple Dole Whip cup with coconut rum. Sweet Mama – check this place out! 

5 – Trilo-Bites in DinoLand U.S.A.

Are you craving something with a little kick while strolling through Animal Kingdom? Be sure to head to Trilo-Bites in DinoLand U.S.A., for their specialty – Buffalo Chicken Chips! Chips and buffalo chicken? Heck, it’s Disney – why not combine the two and make for an awesome snack! Plus, you can also enjoy soft-serve ice cream with your choice of fountain beverage.

6 – Anandapur Ice Cream Truck in Asia

You can’t miss this incredibly decorated blue ice cream truck on your way to Expedition Everest. The menu is really quite simple but very yummy! Take your pick of a soft-serve waffle cone in vanilla, chocolate, or twist. Or go with a float, with your choice of a fountain beverage.

We have had a long time love affair with Disney. We love the magic and the memories we've made at Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with being Annual Passholders, Disney Vacation Club Members, and RunDisney participants. From lodging to dining to Genie+ we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us.
