Well, we now know that a popular Animal Kingdom location will be opening once again — and really soon! Pizzafari, located in Discovery Island has set a reopening date of August 2.

Disney Parks Blog shared the exciting foodie news.

Fun animal murals and mosaics at Pizzafari Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park are the colorful backdrop to a delicious quick meal beginning August 2, 2021. Pizza rules in this jungle but you can also order a Chicken Parmesan Sandwich, Green and Grains Salad, and an adorable “Spaghetti and Meatball” Cupcake. Kick back with a refreshing Blue Lagoon with blue curaçao beverage syrup, lemonade, and gummy worms – also available with a glow cube and with or without rum!

Pizzafari is a great spot for families wishing to escape the chaos of Disney’s Animal Kingdom without leaving the theme park and munch on some delicious pizza. While the dining location offers the traditional cheese and pepperoni, they also have an upgraded pie for a meat lover which includes both pepperoni and sausage. A delicious plant-based salad that has a variety of beans, olives, tomatoes, and a Green Goddess dressing.

Pizzafari is one of the few Animal Kingdom restaurants that has remained closed since the theme parks reopened last summer. Only Caravan Road, Kusafiri Coffee Shop, and Restaurantosaurus remain closed at this time.

Disney also announced that the popular Yachtsman Steakhouse at Disney’s Yacht Club and Columbia Harbor House at the Magic Kingdom will both be opening on August 5.
