Festival of the Lion King Dining Packages Coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom

You can now receive the royal treatment at Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park with two all-new Festival of the Lion King Signature Dining Packages! Simba and his friends are inviting Guests to join in the festivities with a delicious meal at Tiffins Restaurant followed by special VIP seating at one of the most popular shows at Walt Disney World® Resort.

For both dining packages (Tier I and Tier II), you can savor a delectable lunch or dinner at Tiffins Restaurant on Discovery Island. You’ll enjoy a world-class three-course meal that includes one appetizer, one entrée, one dessert, and your choice of wine, beer, or a non-alcoholic beverage.

This seasonally-inspired menu features unique dishes from around the world. On the appetizer menu, Guests will begin their feast with items such as Avocado-and-Tomato Salad, Spiced Chickpea Falafel, and Charred Octopus. And for the main course, they can choose from a selection of mouthwatering entrées like Kamo Ramen (duck confit, soft-poached egg, spiced coconut broth, alba mushrooms, and chili-lime cashew), Shrimp and Grits (with Gulf white shrimp, Anson Mills grits, applewood smoked bacon, heirloom tomatoes, and smoked pepper jam), Surf and Turf (with grilled local beef tenderloin, butter poached lobster tail, Yukon gold potatoes, seasonal vegetables, and Cape Mountain Whiskey butter), or Fort McCoy Beef Tenderloin (with char-crusted beef tenderloin, loaded crushed potato, seasonal vegetables, bacon-sherry vinaigrette, and crispy shallots).

And of course there’s always room for a decadent dessert. Guests can indulge in the Guava Mousse, South American Ganache, or the Whipped Cheesecake.

Along with their meal, your Clients will receive special vouchers for priority reserved VIP seating at Festival of the Lion King, a Broadway-style show filled with pageantry, puppetry, and popular songs from the film. They’ll even receive a commemorative cast photo that captures the moment forever.

With the Tier I dining package, Guests will continue the fun with a unique safari tour through the African outback, where over 34 distinct wildlife species seemingly roam free. Escorted by a special guide, Guests will ride through rugged terrain to see some of the world’s most exotic animals in their unique habitats. Tour guides will provide interesting information on the land and its residents for an unforgettable expedition.
