Dining Plan

The Most Expensive Restaurant at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

The current changes in offerings at Disney World, due to COVID-19, has stalled the four Dining Plans that guests can typically add to their vacation packages. Each meal will now have to be paid out of pocket. Which means weighing your options of which restaurant to dine at during your visit may go beyond preferences.

Today we’re investigating which restaurant at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is the most expensive to dine at. To figure this out we compared the restaurants by compiling a meal including entree, dessert, and alcoholic beverage. The items that were chosen were the cheapest options available on the menu. We also chose from the dinner menu, if a lunch or dinner menu was offered. Tusker House was not compared because it is currently closed. Here’s what we found, the most expensive restaurant to dine at during a visit to Disney’s Animal Kingdom is:

Tiffins Restaurant

This is no surprise, as this is a Signature Restaurant. The least expensive entree at this restaurant was $30, the North-African Spiced Tofu. The least expensive dessert was $10, Passion Fruit Tapioca Cream. The least expensive cocktail was $13, Jen’s Tattoo. Tiffins Restaurant, isn’t one that I would choose to eat at anyways if I was bringing kids. If we were flying solo though, it’s on our lists of restaurants to get to. Tiffins Restaurant is found on your right as your entering Pandora from Discovery Island. It has African and Asian influences in its menu and is a far cry from the food offered at your other choices: Yak & Yeti and Rainforest Cafe. But if you find yourself not wanting to spend a minimum of $53 per guest, then Yak & Yeti and Rainforest Cafe will have what you’re looking for.

Don’t forget that Animal Kingdom Lodge is not far from this park and has a couple of great dining options as well. Sanaa at Kidani Village is one of our favourites. And there’s also Jiko-The Cooking Place, but this is also a Signature Restaurant so you can expect a higher ticket price at this restaurant as well.
