The wildly popular Animal Kingdom Tasting Sampler that debuted last winter is returning with new delicious offerings!

Last December, Disney introduced an Animal Kingdom Tasting Sampler that allowed guests to experience a variety of the park’s best menu items. In case you missed it, check out this blog post: Limited-Time Tasting Sampler Now Available at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Disney just announced that this delicious offering is returning this Spring with a few changes.
