Animal Kingdom Tasting Sampler Returns for Busy Spring Crowds

Scrooge McDuck’s Billionaire Bacon Caramel Sundae at Trilobites

Easter is coming and that means the parks at Disney World will get very crowded soon. But Disney has figured out a way to entice you with some food offerings and directing crowds in specific directions. Disney's Animal Kingdom Tasting Sampler has officially returned, and it's an interesting way to sample food around the park and get a little discount. I've often thought that Animal Kingdom was a very underrated park when it comes to food. Similar to Epcot, it offers an array of unique cuisine from around the world and there are some stellar snack items.

The sampler can be purchased now through April 22, 2019 at noon and it costs $50. It includes two digital value cards: one $50 card that can be used at over 40 outdoor food and beverage locations throughout the park (and does not expire), and a bonus $10 card that can be used at the following quick-service restaurants after 5pm from April 12-22, 2019: Restaurantosaurus (DinoLand U.S.A), Pizzafari and Pizzafari Family-Style Dining (Discovery Island), Flame Tree Barbecue (Discovery Island), and Satu’li Canteen (Pandora – The World of Avatar). 

When you purchase the sampler, you’ll receive an email for each digital value card. Each email will have a barcode that can be added to your digital wallet on your mobile phone and scanned at most food and beverage locations throughout the park. To purchase, simply visit and use the code DAKDINEBONUS.
