The Mara at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge
*This dining experience took place in July 2014*
It was raining Monday night so we didn’t feel like venturing out anywhere. I ran down to The Mara, the quick-service at Animal Kingdom Lodge, to see what I could get for a light dinner.
I waited for a chef to come out and speak with me and was delighted when I saw that it was a Boma chef! He pretty much asked me what I was in the mood for, and then he went back and made it for me. I ended up eating broccolini, succotash, and some Harira soup. It was a perfect amount of food for what I wanted.
Nathan wanted a salad, so he got a modified Mara Salad, with mushrooms added on.
Mara seems to be great with allergies because they are connected to Boma, and you can get some food that is not on the usual menu (like Harira soup and broccolini!)
Looks like a great place to eat! We’ve been to Disney, but not to Animal Kingdom.
I dont think I would like this place. Not my type of food.
They also have “normal” food, but I am a big non – normal person when it comes to food. Comes with being vegan & gluten-free! They have flatbread pizzas and sandwiches and stuff.
Looks yummy! In all our visits to Disney, we’ve never visited AK Lodge. Definitely going to have to remedy that!
Yes, you should visit! All the restaurants there are good!
I haven’t eaten at Mara before but I love that they seem to be good with allergy requests. I will have to share this with my friend who’s son has a lot of food allergies.
I’ll have to try that place next time we’re there! The food looks delicious!
It’s very yummy!
The food looks delicious! I would love to visit Animal Kingdom one day. I think my girls would really enjoy it!
