This Tiffins Restaurant dinner review is based on my experience when visiting the restaurant in November 2017 with my family.
Tiffins is a Signature Dining restaurant located in the Discovery Island section of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park. They serve African, Asian, and Latin cuisine. While this restaurant is considered “fine dining” you do not need to dress up to eat there. In fact, while we were there, several kids were running around without shoes on!
My family and I planned a trip to Walt Disney World during the week of Thanksgiving 2017. While I might not recommend visiting during that week due to the insane amount of people who visit during that time, I would recommend every single restaurant we were fortunate to eat at!
We purchased the Deluxe Dining Plan while booking our trip through the Disney website. This plan includes an entree and beverage for breakfast, and an appetizer, entree, and dessert for lunch and dinner. In addition, each person also receives 2 snacks per day. Disney is changing the plan slightly for 2018, but it seems that it will just include even more options!
The Deluxe Dining Plan treats anyone 10 and up as an adult, so my 10-year-old son ordered off the regular menu for all of our meals. Anyone under 3 is free so long as they just share food from other peoples plates. Sometimes my 2-year-old just ate from our plates, and sometimes we ordered additional food for him at an additional cost.
Please note that Tiffins will use 2 entitlements per person because it is a Signature Dining restaurant.
We did make reservations for all of our meals ahead of time. I would highly recommend doing this as soon as you book your trip, especially if you will be travelling during a busier time of the year.
Tiffins Restaurant Dinner Review
I first want to apologize for the lack of some photos. While some of the photos are not of the best quality due to dim lighting, some simply could not be salvaged, even with editing. We did not want to disturb other diners by using the flash.
Chef’s House-made Charcuterie Board
Tiffins Signature Bread Service
Seasonal Vegetable Medley
For my entree, I choose a seasonal special. It consisted of different types of squash, sweet potatoes, and seasonings. Daryl said it’s the first time he’s seen me clean my plate! It was really delicious. I have not been able to find a more detailed description of it and it’s no longer on the menu.
Wagyu Striploin and House-smoked Brisket
The Sorbet Tasting consisted of 2 different flavors. The dessert is described as: Kaffir Lime Syrup, Passion Fruit Curd, Crunchy Vanilla Crouton on the menu. Daryl almost always orders ice cream, gelato, or sorbets for dessert. He really enjoyed these, especially the passion fruit!
While we really enjoyed the food at Tiffins, I’m not sure we would chose to go back using a Disney Dining Plan since it takes 2 entitlements for each person to eat there. It also wasn’t a great choice for older kids whose palates may not be as refined. If it was just my fiancé and I, we might reconsider because the food really was fabulous!
Because the menus are always changing, I can’t guarantee the same selections will all be available as in this Tiffins Restaurant Dinner Review. To see the current Tiffins menu and prices, click here!
