Disney Resort Quick Service Dining Location Temporarily Extends Hours

The Mara, the quick service dining location at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, will be open during dinner hours during the month of April.

In what is likely a response to the surging number of resort guests during the Spring Break season, The Mara will open its doors from 4pm-9pm each evening this month. Breakfast will continue to be offered from 7:30am-11:30am.

There seems to be something for everyone on the menu, including a Black Angus Bacon Cheeseburger, a plant-based Marrakesh Falafel Platter, The Mara’s Braai Chicken Flatbread, fan-favorite Zebra Domes, and much more.

At this time, according to the Walt Disney World website, the addition of evening hours is temporary. We’ll be sure to let you know if that changes in the days ahead.

Deni loves all things Disney, and, in 2013, moved to the Magic from Maryland. Walt Disney World is her happy place, and she loves getting to share it with others. Deni and her husband of almost 26 years have 2 grown children. Her favorite WDW snack? A Mickey Bar, of course. Is there any other?!
