We have some exciting news for all those Disney fans out there that enjoy Walt Disney World Resort hopping, or simply sipping on sumptuous drinks at the end of a long Disney Parks day. Disney has been dishing out food news with the reopening of buffets at Magic Kingdom and EPCOT, a new restaurant coming to Disney’s Contemporary Resort, quick-service at Disney’s Hollywood Studios reopening, and more! We’re thrilled to see several pre-pandemic favorites return. Now there is another reopening to add to the list.
Walt Disney World has officially reopened Victoria Falls Lounge at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge! The quiet reopening of this favorite Disney Resort lounge comes at perfect timing as Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge and the Jambo House are scheduled to reopen to the public on August 26. Previously, the Kidani Village portion of the Resort was open to Disney Vacation Club Members. Victoria Falls Lounge makes for the SECOND Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge reopening of the week.
Earlier this week we saw the reopening of Boma – Flavors of Africa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge which marked the first buffet to reopen on Walt Disney World Resort property since the COVID closures back in March 2020. And yes, Zebra Domes are back at Boma!
The Walt Disney World website describes the Victoria Falls Lounge experience by saying, “Sample suds from South Africa before or after dinner inside this intimate bar overlooking Boma restaurant. A host of South African wines are also featured, all of which can be enjoyed in the flickering ambience of the fire pit outside.” The current lounge hours listed are 5 pm to 11 pm daily. Our top drink recommendation from the menu… go for the “Victoria Falls Mist” which includes Midori Melon Liqueur, Van der Hum Tangerine Liqueur, Banana Liqueur, and Sour Mix topped with Sprite. YUM! Happy sipping, Disney fans!
