April 22nd is an important day! Not only is it Earth Day, but in Walt Disney World we’ll celebrate Disney’s Animal Kingdom and its 20th Anniversary. There’s much to celebrate and Disney is doing it in a big way with multiple events celebrating the anniversary. You can’t have a good party without good food, though. Let’s take a look at all the Earth Day treats being offered to celebrate Earth Day and Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Earth day isn’t being celebrated at Animal Kingdom only; Walt Disney World Resort is celebrating it throughout the parks! Detailed on Disney Parks Blog, there will be new cupcakes, burgers, sliders, and a limited time lunch offered at Tiffins!
Disney’s Animal Kingdom
Starting with two celebratory cupcakes, a Tree of Life Cupcake will be available at Creature Comforts and Flame Tree Barbecue, and an Earth Day Cupcake will be available at Pizzafari and Restaurantosaurus.
The Tree of Life Cupcake is a vanilla cupcake topped with buttercream and an edible chocolate piece; and the Earth Day Cupcake is a chocolate cupcake topped with buttercream, white chocolate crispy pearls, white chocolate mousse, and an edible chocolate piece.
On the savory side, there are delicious plant-based burger offerings at Nomad Lounge and Restaurantosaurus. Nomad Lounge will offer Impossible™ Burger Sliders with tomato chutney and smoked onion on a brioche bun and served with yucca fries. At Restaurantosaurus, you’ll find an Impossible™ Burger with avocado and tomato on a brioche bun.
