Now that Walt Disney World Resort 2022 vacation packages are now available to book, we’re getting a glimpse of what Disney has planned for future vacations during these uncertain times.
It looks like Disney will still require park pass reservations for entry to the park in 2022, and Disney Dining packages will still not be available. Yes, you read that right. There are no Disney plans or free dining plan deals for 2022.
But there are ways to save money on dinner at Disney outside of the Dining Plan. For many families and individuals, Disney dining plans really cost more than pocket food. The secret is knowing where to go for food; and as always, we did the work for you.
Today I break down the Animal Kingdom restaurants that offer the best value for money. And for value, I tell you where to go to get the most out of your worked dough!
Fast service values
Barbecue Flame Tree
The Flame Tree Barbecue on Discovery Island is located between the bridge that enters DinoLand, in the United States, and the entrance to the show It’s Tough to be a Bug.
This restaurant offers a very different menu than what is normally found in a theme park with items such as 1/2 chicken with baked beans and cabbage salad for $ 13.29, a Sant Lluís rib dinner with baked beans and cabbage salad for 16.29, and even a combo of ribs and chicken with sides for $ 15.49.
Now the price per ticket is slightly higher than other fast service sites. But the portion sizes here are easily shareable and much more plentiful than the typical park fare.
Professional advice: Be sure to find a table outside behind the restaurant to enjoy great views and atmosphere!
The story of Satu’li Canteen in Pandora – The World of Avatar is that both the Na’vi and Alpha Centuri expeditions have transformed the former dining room of the GDR base to serve Na’vi cuisine to guests.
Like Flame Tree Barbecue, Satu’li Canteen’s menu is different from the typical park fare. aspects different too.
Satu’li serves custom bowls and steamed bao buns with cheeseburger, and everything is super tasty and delicious! But again, this is Na’vi cuisine, so it will look a little alien, especially the cranberry cream cheese mousse and chocolate cake!
Bowl prices range from $ 12.49 a $ 16.99 with the base and sauce you choose while the pods are priced $ 12.29 with french fries.
In addition, the meals for children in Satu’li are among the best and also work fully for adults.
For example, a children’s bowl goes from $ 7.99 a $ 8.99 and also comes with a drink! There is also a hot beef wrapped puppy with dough that comes with sides and a drink $ 7.29, as well as a cheese quesadilla with garnishes and a drink for $ 6.49.
Yak & Yeti Local Foods Cafe
This fast-paced place next to the Yak and Yeti restaurant in Asia offers fast, casual Asian flavors throughout the day.
Their lunch and dinner menu is a bit mixed, although many consider their Kobe burger to be a great choice.
However, I recommend Yak and Yeti’s Local Foods breakfast menu as a value worth considering, especially since breakfast beyond that of a pastry shop is hard to get to in the parks when you don’t have a dinner reservation.
Yak and Yeti’s offers breakfast bowls with scrambled eggs, cheese, potatoes, peppers and onions for $ 10.99 and with bacon or sausage for $ 11.49. You can also get an English egg white muffin with American cheese and tomato with hash brown bites $ 9.49 or with Sausage and Egg for $ 10.99.

Yak & Yeti Restaurant
Animal Kingdom’s Yak & Yeti Restaurant, a perennial favorite in Asia, is housed in a two-story Nepalese inn with a rich cultural atmosphere and excellent views of the park on the second floor.
The menu here offers Chinese, Japanese, Thai and Indian flavors and some say it’s not as good as before; but we’ve found that Yak & Yeti is still a solid choice with an environment and cuisine that reflects the Animal Kingdom itself.
The menu here is priced at $ 15 to $ 35 per adult for both lunch and dinner, but they have a section of their menu dedicated to shareable items that cost from $ 18.79 a $ 14.99. Also, some of their main courses could be easily split between two guests.
