New Delicious Breakfast Sips, Tastes at Disney’s Animal Kingdom
Four new morning pick-me-ups are now available for grown-up guests to purchase at Dawa Bar in Harambe Village at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The four new drinks are inventive variations on the classic brunch cocktail, the Bloody Mary, and cost $9.50 each.
The Discovery Island Bloody Mary is Grey Goose Vodka, Bloody Mary mix, lime juice and olive juice, garnished with parsley and a skewer of mozzarella cheese, tomato, basil and stuffed olive. The Dawa Bloody Mary kicks up the heat level with Worcestershire sauce and horseradish, and is garnished with fresh basil and a skewer of truffle and blue cheese-stuffed olive and prosciutto. The Asian Bloody Mary adds spicy kimchee-sriracha puree and is garnished with Asian slaw (cucumber, carrot, daikon radish) and tandoori shrimp. Finally, the African Bloody Mary is finished with spicy African berbere sauce and garnished with berbere-rubbed beef jerky, celery stalk, carrot and parsley.

Also at Pizzafari, the new multi-grain breakfast croissant is stuffed with egg whites, fresh spinach, provolone cheese and vegetable chutney, with a side of breakfast potatoes.
