Animal Kingdom is home to some of Walt Disney World’s best dining options, especially if you are an adventurous eater. One of these is Tiffins, Animal Kingdom’s Signature dining experience.

But, Tiffins is much more than just a restaurant. It is an art gallery that is essentially a love letter to Disney’s Animal Kingdom. It houses a collection of artwork pulled directly from the park’s imagining, creation, and history. You can read about dinner and tour the galleries HERE.

Next to Tiffin’s is Nomad Lounge. The two share a kitchen and some menu items as well.

Some people consider Nomad Lounge one of Walt Disney World’s best-kept secrets. Tucked away on Discovery Island in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Nomad Lounge often goes completely missed by those who pass it by.

Although it is technically a lounge, it is more than just libations. In fact, the menu boasts some of the best things you will taste in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Not only is the food great, but it is a gorgeous place to rest and take respite from the parks and the weather. In fact, it makes our list of best places to relax in Animal Kingdom.

Perhaps the reason many people do not realize it is there is that it does not offer Advanced Dining Reservations like Tiffins does. Instead, there is a walk-up list for Guests to join when it opens daily. And, that walk-up list is your best chance at getting a seat.

Tiffins is also adding some unique offerings. Choose between Cardamon Spiced Veal or Shrimp & Grits for bold new flavors. And save room for dessert because the new White Chocolate Orange Creme Brulee and Champurrado Chocolate Bar look irresistible.

And, there are some new items available at BOTH locations. These include a Korean Barbecue Oyster Mushroom Bao Bun as well as Pineapple Glazed Pork Belly.
