Announced earlier this week, the new Disney's Animal Kingdom Tasting Sampler is a special limited-time promotion that allows guests to try food and beverages around the park, while also reserving a seat for Rivers of Light as well and even getting some money back, the latter of which is virtually an unheard of experience at Walt Disney World. Here's how it works:

Guests can book the Disney's Animal Kingdom Tasting Sampler experience online, for $30 per guest. Once the experience is paid for, guests will then be emailed a special $35 digital value card that can be used to purchase select tasting-sized food and drinks at over 40 kiosks and carts throughout the park. Here are just some of the options: 

  • Africa: Chicken curry bowl, Dole Whip float, and craft beer selections
  • Discovery Island: Meatball with polenta, mac & cheese with pulled pork or shrimp, house-smoked pastrami slider, and apple cider donut holes
  • Pandora: Pineapple lumpia, pretzels, and select beverages
  • Asia: Tuna bao, Korean beef slider, fried dumplings, margaritas, and a beer flight
  • Dinoland U.S.A.: Corn chip pie, Buffalo chicken chips, milkshakes, and a holiday sundae
  • Other Locations: Additional carts are available throughout the park
At the end of the day's self-guided food tour, guests can then show their proof of purchase of this package to gain access to the special VIP reserved seating area for that evening's second showing of Rivers of Light.

Guests can book this experience now for Rivers of Light performances during the holiday season December 22, 2018 through January 2, 2019.
