Caravan Road Kiosk Review at Disney’s Animal Kingdom
Caravan Road Kiosk Opened On: August 27, 2017.
See this page for all of the Disney’s Animal Kingdom quick service reviews.
Location: Caravan Road was at one time known as Bradley Falls. Before then, its official name was “Safari Egg Roll.” You’ll find it on the path that connects Africa and Asia, closer to Africa and Tamu Tamu Refreshments.
According to Disney, you can:
Flow by this refreshing kiosk—located directly across Discovery River from the Tree of Life—where you can discover a cascade of vegetarian cuisine and a selection of beverages, along with exciting seasonal fare offered throughout the year.
None of this is true.
Food type: A beef slider and bottled beverages. During busier times of year, like Easter and Christmas, Caravan Road may participate in a limited-time promotion. That typically entails offering a separate menu. This review covers what to expect from that sort of tasting sampler event.
Dining Plan: Snack credits.
You can pull up Disney’s current version of the menu here. Note that it may not list what will be available the next time that it opens.
Unique Items: You won’t find the Teriyaki Beef Slider anywhere else. Edamame is also rare, though you’ll find it at Kabuki Cafe in the Japan Pavilion at Epcot, among other locations.
- Rarely anyone in line.
- Convenient if you’re in the back of the Park.
- A rare, freshly-made savory item for a snack credit.
- For the price, portions are small.
- Unlikely to be open unless the Parks are slammed.
Value: For a snack credit, the Beef Slider is an above-average value. Out of pocket, it’s a rougher proposition.
Reputation: It’s difficult to find someone who has tried anything on the current menu, but those who do order seem to enjoy what they’re served, even if it’s costly.
Teriyaki Beef Slider with Pickled Cucumbers
Longtime readers may remember that I have unusually dainty hands, which should accentuate the small size of the sandwich.
We’re talking four or five bites, depending on your tolerance for salt. I thought the sandwich was dominated by the too-thick slice of pickle and the sodium and vinegar that come with it. The beef was otherwise sweet with a syrupy sauce not unlike what’s served at Katsura Grill in the Japan Pavilion. The bun was about as fresh as it gets with a nice soft chewiness. Overall, it was probably a waste of money. $5.50 is about half of the cost of a quick service entree and this is maybe a sixth of the food, if that. As a snack credit, it may make sense if you’re looking for something “savory.”
Caravan Road does not offer dedicated seating. However, you will find some tables with gorgeous views of the Tree of Life across the walkway.
Covered tables here have returned since Disney removed the Baloo and King Louie meet.
