A Look at the Menu for Tiffins Restaurant, Nomad Lounge Opening May 27 at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Countdown to the opening of the newest Disney signature restaurant – Tiffins at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, featuring cuisine and beverages from places that inspired the creation of Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Walt Disney Imagineering describes the interior as “a gallery you can dine in with artwork that is a direct result of travels to Africa, Asia and South America.”

Open for both lunch and dinner, Tiffins is situated near Pizzafari on Discovery Island, near what will be the entrance to Pandora – The World of AVATAR, when it opens in 2017. (“Tiffin” is an Indian English word for a midday meal or a type of container used to carry food while traveling). Adjacent to Tiffins, Nomad Lounge features waterfront views in addition to hand-crafted cocktails with African, Asian and South American flavors; beers, and sustainable wines from those regions, plus specialty non-alcoholic beverages and small bites.

Here’s a look at the menu for both Tiffins and Nomad Lounge.

The park’s culinary team is working on special dining packages which will begin May 28 at Tiffins and Tusker House Restaurant for the new limited-engagement nighttime show, The Jungle Book: Alive With Magic.

Similar to the popular Fantasmic! Dining Packages at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the Dining Package includes reserved seating for the nighttime show. At all-you-care-to-eat Tusker House Restaurant, you can choose the breakfast, lunch or dinner buffet on the day of the show (but you have to dine at least 2 ½ hours before the show). Breakfast is $37, $23 ages 3 to 9, plus tax and gratuity; lunch and dinner, $49, $30 ages 3 to 9, plus tax and gratuity. Tusker House Restaurant is on the Disney Dining Plan and counts as one table-service meal.

At Tiffins, the package includes your choice of appetizer, entrée, dessert and non-alcoholic beverage at either lunch or dinner. The Dining Package is $67 for adults, $32 ages 3 to 9, plus tax and gratuity. Tiffins is on the Disney Dining Plan and counts as two table-service meal credits.

Reservations will open tomorrow, May 21 for Tiffins restaurant as well as Dining Packages for The Jungle Book: Alive With Magic nighttime show, and can be made by visiting or by calling 407-WDW-DINE.


  • I made my ADRs at 6 this morning and was unable to get a breakfast for out AK day. Bummer! We love the Safari Breakfast. Do you know if there are reservations being set aside for the fall shows and they are not available? I just thought it was odd that I could not get a table at all. No biggie. I will continue checking. I’d love to see a package for breakfast and show during the holidays when I will be there. 🙂

  • Will any of the items on the menu be vegan? I’d love to go here but I need to be sure there’s something my family can eat.

  • When I called they said that I could not use my dining plan; however based on the information in the blog I called back and said that it did accept the dining plan. Now looking at my reservation it says “Select Dining Plan are Not accepted.” Please confirm that the dining plan is accepted for this reservation. Thanks.

    • Hi Jennifer, I apologize for the confusion. The Disney Dining Plan is accepted for The Jungle Book: Alive With Magic Dining Package.

  • Dinning Plan are accepted for Dining Package right? Because while making the reservation is says “Select Dining Plan are Not accepted” but here and in the details page it says that they are accepted. Thanks!

    • Correct. The Disney Dining Plan is accepted for the Dining Package. Tusker House Restaurant is one (1) table-service credit, Tiffins is two (2) table-service credits.

  • Very interested in answer to question in opening post–we too got an e-mail saying that the Disney Dining Plan is not accepted for a Dining Package reservation at Tusker House. Hope to be able to keep our reservation and use the dining plan. Getting conflicting answers from Cast Members on the phone at WDW Dining.

  • Why does my dining package confirmation say that Tusker House does NOT participate in the dining plan? Is this an error or is it because of the Jungle Book package? It will be very crummy if the Jungle Book package is not covered as previously promised!

    • Hi Sarah, The Disney Dining Plan does apply to the Dining Package at Tusker House Restaurant. This is an error that is currently being fixed. Thanks!

  • My family of 9 has reservations for Tusker House Restaurant on Thursday June 9 at 9:15 am. Is it possible for you to add the Jungle Book Show for that evenings show. I understand you can get reserved seating as long as you eat breakfast, lunch or dinner at Tusker House that same day. Thanks in advance.

  • I have no problem with making my reservation 2 1/2 hours before the showtime however it would be nice, since booking opens tomorrow, if Disney would actually post the show times on their site!!

  • Kind of wish you all were rolling out the ADRs and FP for those who are less than 30 days out, then less than 60 the next day, then 60 plus the next day. It’s going to be a mad house tomorrow morning. But still thankful that I can try!

  • Can’t wait to see ” Everything”!! We were hoping for a Character Dinner at Tusker House Will the Tusker house dining package still Include the Characters at Dinner?

    • Yes.

  • EXCITED!!!

  • Will there be a menu that is child-friendly, similar in the vein of Sanaa? My son (age 11) WILL NOT eat any of this. He would venture out of his comfort zone but this is a huge stretch.

  • On the Tiffins dining packages for The Jungle Book show, do you have to eat at least 2-1/2 hours before the show, like at Tusker House? What time does the show start?

  • How far is this going to be booked out? Only though the summer or also into the fall?

  • Excellent news! Will definitely be making a reservation tomorrow morning!

  • Will Tiffins be offered as a Dining Package option for the Jungle Book show?

    • Yes, there will be a Dining Package for The Jungle Book: Alive With Magic at Tiffins.

  • Will the dining packages for Tiffins and Tusker House be available thru July?
