    In all the years we've been going, we have never eaten anything at Animal Kingdom. We tend to go for snacks or counter service, so I was wondering what your favourite snack or counter service food was.

    To be honest, I'm usually only at AK for about half a day. So my snack tends to be ice cream related. It's so hot there, so I want something to help cool me off.

    We really enjoyed the Restaurantsaurus quick service in dinoland. I think it used to be a MacDonalds but their chicken was great and an added bonus of a salad bar serving free mushrooms, fried onions, peppers and lettuce and tomato. It was spotlessly clean and great service. Lots of tables and good decor. Worth a try for a quick eat!

    Tusker House walk up window. They change their offerings from time to time. We liked an appetizer at Yak and Yeti, but haven't been back there since it's opening (so how good could we have found it)? :unsure:

    We didn't care for the BBQ at all. :sorry: The Pizzafari used to have a nice sandwich, not sure if it's still there?

    Snacks? I almost always like popcorn.

    Without a doubt it's the Yak & Yeti counter service Sweet & Sour with rice for DH and without rice for me (I replace the rice with fries)

    It's interesting that a lot of people like the Flame Tree BBQ, what makes you go back there, the food or the convenience.

    I've never liked the look of the Yak and Yeti Counter Service, the area where the seats are always looks messy so that would put me off :lol:

    Since I've been doing the menus, I've seen a few things I would like to try. I quite like the sound of the pulled pork - but I know it won't be anything like Yellow Dog, so I don't know :lol:

    I've never had popcorn at any of the parks, I like it covered in caramel not salt :lol: Has anyone tried the sping rolls?

    Neither of us are fond of the Yak and Yeti CS although the egg rolls aren't all that bad. We both like eating at the sit down however.

    We haven't eaten anything from Tusker House since they converted it to the buffet. Actually I didn't even know there was a walk up except for breakfast items.

    Wendy, you can get caramel popcorn in Germany in the WS, and in some of the candy shops throughout the other parks and DTD. :yes:

    We have usually eaten at Rainforest Cafe if we are having a big meal at AK.

    Counter service, we've tried them all. I didn't care for Flame Tree. For me it's too hot at AK (all of the time it seems!) to eat outside. Plus I didn't like their bbq (too sweet) but I haven't been there in YEARS! Tusker House was really nice when it wasn't a buffet (it STILL is nice but you need an ADR now). Pizzafari is ok. We usually have salad and breadsticks. It's big plus is that it is air conditioned :) Same with the one over in dinoland that I can't think of the name of.

    We do like the egg rolls at Yak & Yeti cs.

    Typically a snack at AK is a popcisle or frozen lemonaid. Sometimes watermelon or grapes from one of the stands.

    Sometimes if you get to Germany just at the right time, they've just made the caramel corn and it's still warm. :D :D :D
