REVIEW: Pizzafari Reopens with Mediocre New Sandwich and Salad at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

After being closed for more than a year, Pizzafari has reopened its doors at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and with it have come a pair of new entrees.

As part of Walt Disney World’s COVID-19 protocols, Mobile Order is strongly encouraged to reduce the chances of guests clustering together.

A sign in front of the restaurant shows guests how to use Mobile Order, complete with a QR code to link directly to ordering.

Naturally, with new offerings arriving, we decided to try them and see if they were worth it. Let’s dig in!

Chicken Parmesan Sandwich – $10.99

This sandwich consists of breaded chicken topped with marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese on a ciabatta roll, and is served with a side Caesar salad.

It’s not advertised, but the rolls have a garlic flavor to them, giving it the taste of garlic bread. They’re soft, and not dry at all. It’s decent… which is more than we can say for the rest of the sandwich.

Overall, this is a fairly plain sandwich. The chicken frankly tastes like the fried chicken you might get in a sandwich at McDonald’s with sauce and cheese thrown on.

The marinara sauce is good, but in all honesty, it isn’t enough to save this sandwich. The Caesar salad it comes with is the standard Caesar you’d get at any quick-service restaurant on property. It’ll probably work well for pickier eaters, but it didn’t do much for us.

Greens and Grains Salad – $9.99

The newest plant-based offering is made with mixed greens topped with garbanzo and white beans, red onions, pepperoncini, Kalamata olives, tomatoes, quinoa, and green goddess dressing. It also came with a side Caesar salad, because who doesn’t love salad with a side of more salad?

It’s a pretty-looking salad, but the beauty is only skin-deep. There’s hardly any flavor to this salad. The dressing is barely there, and despite its contents, tastes neither sour nor salty. If you really want a salad, this might do it for you, but we can’t recommend this.
