The theme of Tiffins is an adventurer’s club.

It features three rooms (the Grand Gallery, the Safari Gallery and Trek Gallery) that showcase artwork, sculptures and items that could be found throughout the world.

Inside Tiffins

The decorations in the rooms were inspired by actual notes and field sketches of the Imagineers who created Disney’s Animal Kingdom park!

The Grand Gallery features animal folk art. It is the more whimsical room of the three dining areas.  

The Safari Gallery is just that; items inspired by African art and design.

The Trek Gallery (where we ate) was more Asian-inspired.

Once seated, you will be given a leather-bound menu filled with delicious options.

Our kids had equally impressive food. Here are the options for kid meals:

  • Grilled Shrimp with Ginger-Tamari Glaze
  • Impossible™ “Chow”
  • Grilled Steak
  • Grilled Teriyaki Chicken Thigh

We realize that Tiffins’ menu isn’t for everyone. It is more of a special occasion restaurant.

You will find it pricier than other restaurants inside Animal Kingdom with meals averaging between $35-60.  

This is a decent price for special occasions, but it is not something most people traveling to Disney theme parks will be able to afford.

Those on the Disney dining plan will have to use 2 credits to eat at Tiffins.

Nomad Lounge inside Tiffins

If you still want to check out Tiffins in Animal Kingdom, but don’t want to eat, you can always grab a drink at The Nomad Lounge which is inside the restaurant.

You will find signature cocktails, their own Kungaloosh Spiced Excursion Ale among an extensive wine list.
