Named after the Masai Mara National Reserve in Africa, this quick service restaurant located in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is sure to please all appetites with a taste of Africa, as well as American favorites.
The Mara is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and is located next to the Resort’s Uzima Springs pool area. Guests can dine indoors or take their meals poolside, or to a small area offering shaded tables outside.
Unique items including Bobotie and Breakfast Quinoa are served alongside classic Disney dishes like Mickey Waffles and more for Breakfast. Lunch and Dinner feature the truly tasty African Potjie (a flavorful stew) among the options which also include counter service favorites like Chicken Nuggets, Burgers, and Flatbreads.
The “Grab & Go” market area features snacks, desserts (including the spot’s famous Zebra Domes!), bottled drinks, breakfast pastries, specialty coffees, and fruit. The Mara also offers a selection of African and international wines, beers, cocktails, and even choose-your-own-flavor smoothies.
