It has been reported that a new signature restaurant, Tiffins, is coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom in 2016. For those of you wondering about the name, a “tiffin” is an Indian English word for either a type of container used to carry food while traveling or a midday meal. Tiffins will be open for lunch and dinner and will have waterfront views from both indoor and outdoor seating areas. The restaurant celebrates the art of travel, and the menu will feature diverse offerings inspired by places that were influential in the creation of Animal Kingdom.
There has been no word as to an opening date, where in the park Tiffins will be located, or whether it will be table service or quick service, although the “signature” status might indicate a table service restaurant that would require more than one dining credit on the Disney Dining Plan (DDP), if the restaurant accepts the DDP. We’ll update you as soon as we know more.
