Disney’s Animal Kingdom offers an impressive variety of desirable dining locations. From snacks and quick service to table service and sought-after character meals, visitors to Walt Disney World’s largest theme park have a lot from which to choose when it comes to their meals. For those that like to go-with-the-flow and avoid the stress of securing dining reservations in advance, The Smiling Crocodile is the perfect place for you. Located centrally on Discovery Island, this kiosk is on your way to and from all corners of the park. Whether you’re heading to ride Avatar Flight of Passage or crisscrossing the park from Pandora over to Asia for your next thrill on Expedition Everest, you’ll find a scrumptious shareable snack, cold beverage, or well-priced lunch at The Smiling Crocodile.

Serving 3 different varieties of street tacos, The Smiling Crocodile offers a small, but tasty menu for those looking to make their mealtime quick and easy. Choose from pulled pork, roasted chicken, and a vegetarian taco, all served with a side of chips and salsa. Satisfy your hunger and then be on your way to the next attraction or show. The Smiling Crocodile is ideal for those guests who are on-the-go from rope drop to closing and prefer to not waste precious time at other busy lunch spots.

The hours for The Smiling Crocodile align perfectly for a midday meal, open only from 11:00AM-3:00PM. Find The Smiling Crocodile beside Adventure Outpost where you can meet Mickey and Minnie Mouse and adjacent to the entrance for “It’s Tough to be a Bug.” Look for a golden kiosk adorned with crocodiles and other wild animals to purchase a delicious meal and a refreshing beverage including a draft beer and an Island Sunrise cocktail.
