    Is there a Counter Service Restaurant in Animal Kingdom that is your favourite, one that you always head to when you are in the park?

    Using the keyword "always" we don't have one. However, I like Flame Tree BBQ. It used to be Tusker House.

    Pizzafari - for the decor, not the pizza.

    Never have counter service at AK. We usually get one of those jalapeno cheese stuffed pretzels in the morning and then always Yak & Yeti for lunch.

    We always go to the Flame Tree BBQ. Reasonable food and nice shady seating area.

    Not really a fan of much of the counter service at AK. What we have found that we do like (and enjoy consistently):

    Breakfast: Fresh fruit and pastries from the Safari area
    Lunch: The Yak and Yeti Counter Service (Anandapur Local Food Cafes) - The kids and I LOVE the chicken fried rice and egg rolls, and if you're on the Dining Plan and have extra snack credits (which we ALWAYS do) you can use these for the egg rolls and rice!

    Always visit Yak & Yeti for the sweet & sour

    Same here. Not a huge fan of the food at AK. But, Yak and Yeti's counter service is surprisingly good. There are other random carts around here and there, and if they are open when we are there we might get a chicken satay skewer or something like that. Usually though, as with DHS or MK we eat elsewhere.

    However, just had a lovely lunch at Tony's in MK, so may be amending our opinion of food there. :D
