Imagine you are walking the path to Africa in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. You begin to hear growls from your stomach that remind you of DinoLand USA. The first thing that comes to your mind is pizza right? Well maybe not but, if you stop at Pizzafari, you will not only get a good meal but an experience as well. As with all of Animal Kingdom the Imagineers left no inch untouched.
Now usually I am all about the food. I have even eaten in a hollowed out school bus of a restaurant for good food (Hillbilly Hotdogs in West Virginia…amazing). However, I have to admit when it comes to Pizzafari the atmosphere outshines the food.
This large counter service restaurant has six dining rooms that are uniquely themed to represent different types of animals. I could tell you what each one is, but part of the fun is to explore and try and figure it out (don’t search the internet that’s cheating).
This restaurant has different pizza options that will satisfy the whole family. From Pepperoni to vegetable, but the one thing that stands out and is delicious is the hot italian sandwich. All entrees come with a side caesar salad also.
Pizzafari also boasts a breakfast menu if you are getting to the park for rope drop. The breakfast platter includes scrambled eggs,bacon,sausage,french toast, and potatoes ($8.49). There is a kids version as well with Eggs,turkey sausage,potatoes, and oatmeal ($4.99). For The sophisticated diners the spinach and goat cheese frittata is served with fresh salsa and potatoes ($6.99).
Pizzafari is very affordable for families or someone just looking for an inexpensive snack (everything is under $10.00). Chuck E. Cheese has made this model work for decades. Have good food, a fun well themed restaurant, and parents they have wine and draft beer!
Overall, Animal Kingdom has many food options for you. Most of which will not only fill your stomach, but empty your wallet. So on your next trek to Africa, stop in Pizzafari. It will be a great break for the whole family.
