Guests can purchase either a Tier I or Tier II dining package; both packages include lunch or dinner at Tiffins. The three-course meal includes a seasonally-inspired menu of one appetizer, one entree, one dessert, and your choice of beer, wine, or a non-alcoholic beverage.
On the appetizer menu, guests can try items like the Avocado-and-Tomato Salad, Spiced Chickpea Falafel, or Charred Octopus. Main courses include Kamo Ramen (duck confit, soft-poached egg, spiced coconut broth, alba mushrooms, and chili-lime cashew); Shrimp and Grits (with Gulf white shrimp, Anson Mills grits, applewood smoked bacon, heirloom tomatoes, and smoked pepper jam); Surf and Turf (with grilled local beef tenderloin, butter poached lobster tail, Yukon gold potatoes, seasonal vegetables, and Cape Mountain Whiskey butter); or Fort McCoy Beef Tenderloin (with char-crusted beef tenderloin, loaded crushed potato, seasonal vegetables, bacon-sherry vinaigrette, and crispy shallots). Dessert options include the Guava Mousse, South American Ganache, or Whipped Cheesecake.
In addition to the three-course meal, guests receive vouchers for priority reserved VIP seating at Festival of the Lion King. The live stage musical features Simba and friends, puppetry, and hit songs from the animated movie. As part of the dining package, guests also receive a commemorative cast photo.
Guests who select the Tier I package continue the VIP experience with a special guided safari. While riding through the rugged outback, guests have the chance to see over 34 different wildlife species in their unique habitats.
