The Animal Kingdom Resort "Area" gives us an unusual grouping of dining options.

The budget friendly All-Star Resorts offer three virtually identical food-court locations across the three building complex. If I had to pick one, I would choose the World Premiere Food Court... mostly because they have many shiny lights (marquee style) hanging above the food court area.

Disney's Animal Kingdom Area Resort Dining
Disney's Coronado Springs is, (more or less), a convention style resort and as such, it's dining options sometimes get overlooked. That's too bad really, because the South American themed restaurants here are run by the same group that operate the Mexican restaurants in Epcot. Las Ventanas and the Maya Grill both offer South American inspired American cuisine, in a setting that's usually a bit quieter than other resort locations (unless there's a big convention in town).

The real culinary powerhouses in this resort area grouping are the Animal Kingdom Lodge & Villa locations.

The signature "Jiko" (and nearby Cape Town Lounge) offer unique fine dining, while many guests consider Kidani Village's "Sanaa" to not only be a hidden gem... but one of the best restaurants on property.

Finally, don't cross "Boma" off the dining list just because it's a buffet. If you're not familiar with the flavors and spices common in African (and the mild-side of Indian) food, Boma offers a great way to test the waters and get small portions of this and that, to see if you're going to like the cuisine.
