Share This!

It’s back again! The Disney’s Animal Kingdom Tasting Sampler will be returning once again for the winter season. Guests will be able to purchase a digital card which will allow you to taste your way around Disney’s Animal Kingdom, enjoying the park’s carts, kiosks, and, after 4:00 p.m. the ability to enjoy quick-service restaurants.

The sampler card costs $50 and it includes two digital value cards: one $50 card that can be used at over 40 outdoor food and beverage locations throughout the park (and does not expire), and a bonus $10 card that can be used at the following quick-service restaurants after 4:00 p.m. from December 22, 2019 through January 4, 2020. Restaurants that will accept this bonus card include Restaurantosaurus, Pizzafari and Pizzafari Family-Style Dining, Flame Tree Barbecue, and Satu’li Canteen. In addition, with each $50 card purchased, you will receive two reserved seats for the second showing of Rivers of Light: We are One. Keep in mind, these must be redeemed between December 22, 2019 and January 4, 2020.

At each of the outdoor food and beverage locations, you can use the $50 card to purchase anything that can be found on the menu. Here’s a list of all the items that you won’t want to miss:

  • You get an additional $10 to use after 4pm plus with each card purchased you get 2 reserved seats at the River of Light show (second show). So you are getting a $60 value plus reserved seats for the show.

  • I don’t really understand the purpose of this card. If you are using the card to “purchase” snacks what is the advantage? Why not just purchase them with cash?
