On June 30th 2017 WDWMagazine.com was so kind to let me take over their FACEBOOK PAGE to take viewers on a tour of the beautiful Animal Kingdom Lodge!
Here it is on our youtube channel so you can TOUR Animal Kingdom Lodge with me! Learn about the FREE Culinary Tour and more!
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.
See the little thin layer of cake on the bottom? Mmmm….
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!
The most widely spoken language in Africa is Swahili. “Jambo!” meant the cast members over at Animal Kingdom were saying hello to me, NOT calling me fat, as I originally thought.
Visiting Animal Kingdom Lodge at Christmas time means you may find the cast members saying “Kuwa na Krismasi njema!” – or – “Merry Christmas!” in Swahili. The decorations at Animal Kingdom Lodge are lovely, understated, and of course African themed, as you will see here.
