Maybe you’ve heard of the iconic Dole Whip or maybe even the lesser known
The Disney parks aren’t the only place you can find iconic food items. Inside the fabulous Animal Kingdom Lodge you can find Zebra Domes – a culinary hidden gem – and possibly one of the best kept World Secrets at Disney! Some guests love Zebra Domes, and some don’t. I am one who adores these little striped treasures – so get ready for a completely biased Zebra Dome blog post!
Despite what the name suggests, they do NOT contain bits of real zebra.
They get their name due to their striped appearance.
The main ingredients are actually espresso, heavy cream, and Kahlua. I am not usually a fan of strong coffee flavors and I don’t drink coffee at all. Zebra Domes, however, contain just a hint – and it is not over powering. They require refrigeration because they are so soft and smooth. They are not made of ice cream – but beware – they will melt in the heat. I tried to bring some home for my husband and they did not survive the 40 minute drive.
Zebra Domes are always on the buffet menu over at Boma. No time to make a dining reservation? No problem! Just head on over to The Mara – where they are packaged in little clear boxes as a grab and go item! Bite sized pieces of heaven in a little box of 5 for $3.69 or a snack credit?! Yes please. I would like a herd of them…but once I am done they will surely be extinct.
Can we head over to the Animal Kingdom Lodge right now?
So what team are you on? Do you love Zebra Domes or maybe not so much? If you haven’t given them a try yet, now you know the secret!
I hope you will find inspiration to trot over and grab some for yourself…and please let me know what you think!
