Pizzafari: A Colorful Place to Dine 

Dining Style: Counter Service
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Location: Discovery Island: Animal Kingdom 

The Disney Dining Plan is accepted at this location. 

While the name Pizzafari firmly suggests that this location only carries pizza think again. Pizzafari is a great location nestled in Discovery Island at Animal Kingdom. From the vivid murals and floor mosaics the feel you have when dining in this wonderful counter service location is clean and relaxed. To keep with the theme of the name Pizzafari, the restaurant is brightly decorated with bright safari like colors. Make sure you check out each of the dining rooms at this establishment as they each have a different theme; Home Room, Nocturnal Room, Upside down Room, Camouflage Room,  Four Seasons Room & Bug Room. Look around while you are eating, like all things Disney the surrounding decorations have a purpose.

Pizzafari not only carries pizzas but also offers some wonderful sandwich and salad options. The pizza is very similar to that of Toy Story Pizza Planet but Pizzafari throws in some scrumptious breadsticks topped with cheese and a side of marinara...yummy!! If you love marinara and would love to dip your pizza in it, not problem, just ask for a side at no charge.  The sandwich offerings are delicious and do not taste like they belong at any counter service location. My husband ordered the Hot Italian style sandwich and said it was full of great Italian cold cuts and cheeses. While he normally would veer away from a sandwich in fear that it would not fill him up he gave it a whirl and said that the Hot Italian sandwich is a must do for him from now on. I ordered the vegetable pizza that came with the breadsticks and as can be expected it was the same as the pizzas at Toy Story Pizza Planet, but I can say that I always enjoy the pizza there. I like to take a ranch packet and dip my pizza in it...yummy!! I have not had it but I have heard that Pizzafari makes a "mean" which means good, Caesar salad.  Your little ones get a pick of either mac and cheese or a cheese pizza.
