Perched upon Animal Kingdom‘s reimagined waterfront sits Tiffins Restaurant. Overlooking Discovery River Lagoon is this new signature eatery that celebrates the art of traveling, exploration & adventure.

Disney Imagineers journeyed the world to create the authenticity that so characterizes Animal Kingdom. This new dining experience is inspired by their travels… with an ambience reminiscent of a classic adventurers’ club.

Indoors you’ll find African and Asian themed dining rooms featuring artwork, photographs and sculptures of exotic animals from around the globe. Be sure to view the displays of field sketches and log books from the Imagineers‘ journeys and explorations traveling the globe. Outside dining is also offered with picturesque waterfront views.

The name “Tiffins” infers globetrotting… being the Indian English word for tiered food containers used for traveling or midday meals in India.

Disney chefs designed a menu that embraces travel and adventure… inspired by the Disney Imagineers‘ world wanderings. International cuisine offerings from Asia, Africa and South America are highlighted. Here are a few specialties from the menu…

  • Whole Fried Sustainable Fish — Black Bean Sauce & Thai Green Papaya Slaw
  • Charred Octopus Appetizer — Chorizo, Romesco Sauce, Olive Tapenade & Squid Ink Aioli
  • Surf & Turf — Grilled Wagyu Beef, Lobster Tail, Chimichurri Butter & Bonarda Reduction
  • South American Chocolate Ganache — Caramelized Banana & Cocoa Nib Tuile

Drawing from countries around the globe, Tiffins also offers a unique menu of handcrafted cocktails, specialty beers, imported wines, coffees and teas. Next door to Tiffins is Nomad’s Lounge… a sojourner’s retreat featuring beverages and appetizers… a perfect place to unwind from your travels.
