Mara at Animal Kingdom Lodge Jambo House


We recently stayed 10 days at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, Kidani Village. We absolutely loved it there..see my review HERE.

While we were on our vacation, we decided to book Disney’s Quick Service Dining package. While I am not going to review quick service dining option today, I would like to talk about Mara quick service restaurant located at Animal Kingdom Lodge, Jambo House.

At Mara you can expect to enjoy American quick service for breakfast, lunch, and, dinner with an African flair. There is sure to be something to please everyone in the family as they serve a large selection of soups, salads, sandwiches, pizzas, hamburgers, a few stews, and dessert.

We never went there for breakfast but I can see on the menu they serve Disney favorites like Mickey waffles!

When you arrive you will see there is a line to order. You get a tray place your order with a cast member and then you receive a buzzer. At this time you can get a table and condiments as well as your dessert selections. When the buzzer goes off you can grab your food and pay! It was very stress-free.  We enjoyed seating both indoors and outdoors.

We absolutely enjoyed every single meal we had at Mara.  The pizzas are flat-bread and I would like to make a special note of the BBQ Chicken Pizza, YUMMY! In addition, we enjoyed the hand-carved ham sandwiches. I was not too found of ordering a sandwich but my husband did, and I tried his..it was SOOOO good! I am still craving it!

One thing we did not notice the first day was the bakery off to the left where you order. Be sure to head over there to get your dessert if you are on the Dining Plan because anything in that case is included. We LOVED the banana bread. We took it back to our room and had it with milk slightly warmed.

Don’t forget that you can also get the popular zebra domes from Boma at Mara as well. We of course had to have those and they were splendid.

My son tried the African Stew and thought it was wonderful! I would like to make mention that my kids are adventurous eaters so this one may not be for the picky eater. It was FULL of taste and potent spices. Very good!

Overall, we were thrilled with Mara. I could see this being a location that you visit to dine at even if you are not staying there.

What Our Clients Say

My grandson Oscar (5), son Johnathan, sister Kim and I went to Disney World for a week.  When I first had the thought to go I thought, where do I begin?  I put a shout out on FaceBook and discovered that Beth was a guru.  All I had to give her was my dates and we started from there.  She gave me options for resorts, told me about the dining plan, park hopper, fast passes and resorts to stay in.  She walked me through every step of the way.  I know that our vacation would not have been half as fun or organized if not for Beth.  I can’t say enough good things about her.  I would ask a silly question, she would reply and not make me feel like it was silly.  There is so much to Disney that I know it would have been a nightmare without her.  She is always, friendly and helpful.  She never tried to sway my opinion one way or another and let me make the decisions.  I would definitely have been lost without her.  I recommend her to everyone who says they want to go to Disney World.  Thank you Beth for the vacation of a lifetime.
