Starting in the town of Anandapur in Animal Kingdom’s Asia, we love the ice cream options at the Anandapur Ice Cream Truck. This truck offers vanilla, chocolate, and twist soft-serve options in waffle cones or a float with a fountain beverage. Don’t miss the fearsome Yeti Sundae, featuring chocolate and vanilla soft-serve topped with blue cake crumbs, snowflakes, and a chocolate yeti!

Dino-Bite Snacks

Next, let’s head over to Dino-Bite Snacks in DinoLand U.S.A. This Quick Service stand has delicious snacks like the Dig Ice Cream Sandwich, the Old Fashioned Hot Fudge Sundae, and the Häagen-Dazs Hand-scooped Ice Cream Waffle Cone with vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, or sugar-free flavors. One of our favorites is the Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich made with freshly baked chocolate chip cookies.

Back in Animal Kingdom’s Asia, we find Drinkwallah, a small refreshment stand. At Drinkwallah, we recommend the Hand-dipped Mickey’s Premium Ice Cream Bar. This dessert is dipped in Blue Raspberry-flavored Coating and dusted with Sprinkles. This location also offers delicious frozen Coca-Cola beverages.

Tamu Tamu Refreshments in Africa has some of Animal Kingdom’s most iconic ice cream desserts. This location offers the famous Disney DOLE Whip Dessert. Guests can enjoy the Pineapple Dole Whip Cup or Float, with or without Parrot Bay Coconut Rum. Other favorites include the Simba Sunset featuring Pineapple Dole Whip with Strawberry and the Pineapple Crisp Sundae featuring pineapple crisp cake, vanilla ice cream, pineapple caramel, and crispy streusel topping.


Our last stop in Animal Kingdom Park is at Trilo-Bites in DinoLand U.S.A. This location offers chocolate, vanilla, and twist soft-serve ice cream in a waffle cone or a float with your choice of fountain beverage. Trilo-Bites is also a lesser-known DOLE Whip location, offering the Trilo-Bites Twist featuring Orange Dole Whip and Vanilla Soft-serve.

About Megan Losey

As a Disney foodie, I love writing about Disney food and snacks. Some of my favorites are the Carrot Cake Cookie from Trolley Car Cafe, the Mickey Beignets from Port Orleans French Quarter, and the Apple Blossom from Port Orleans Riverside. When I'm visiting the parks, you can find me on Main Street taking in the good vibe of Magic Kingdom or relaxing with a drink at the Polynesian watching the fireworks from the beach. As a previous Cast Member, I will always have a special place in my heart for the Magic Kingdom, especially Main Street U.S.A.
