What happened to the Allergy Kiosk at Animal Kingdom?

The allergy kiosk at Animal Kingdom is now gone. It was renamed Terra Treats, which is a seasonal kiosk at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. However, with the name change came the disappearance of its well-known allergy-friendly snacks and drinks.

When is Terra Treats Open?

Terra Treats only opens during crowded times of the year, like the Holiday season and spring breaks, where it serves snacks and beverages. It’s been eons since the options have been creative.

Where is Terra Treats located?

The Terra Treats Kiosk on Discovery Island at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is located across from the Starbucks, and the bridge into Africa is just ahead. When it opened recently, it served snack-sized slices of:

  • butternut squash, potato, & prosciutto pizza
  • meatballs and polenta
  • tomato & cheese pizza
  • Chianti

Why did Disney Get Rid of the Allergy Kiosk at Animal Kingdom?

The need for a dedicated allergy stand lessened because Walt Disney World made allergy menus more accessible. You can now ask to see the allergy menu at every table service restaurant and quick service stand. The “Gardens Kiosk” also went by the wayside for a similar reason. Disney has made a great push to include plant-based options at every restaurant.

The History of the Terra Treats Snack Cart

There used to be an allergy-friendly kiosk featuring breakfast and snack treats with a pile of gluten-free snacks including fresh fruit, cookies, crackers, and chips. The cart featured unique treats like breakfast pastries and gluten-free draft beer.  Once upon a time, they even had cricket flour crackers (made from ground-up crickets).

During that time, it was also known as the Gardens Kiosk– which also featured allergy and plant-based treats. Both stands provided pamphlets regarding other options for plant-based eating and allergy alternatives throughout the park, as well.

Before the allergy kiosk at Animal Kingdom, it was the Discovery Island Ice Cream cart. The ice cream stand featured a homemade ice cream sandwich, hand-scooped ice cream, and a “bug sundae.” The homemade ice cream sandwich was similar to the delicious and oversized one from the Main Street Bakery. For those looking to recreate the sundae at home- grab some gummy worms!

Unless it is a busy time of year, Terra Treats will be closed. However, if it’s open, hit us up on social media (FacebookInstagram, and Twitter). Let us know what they are serving! Our gluten-free family has always been fascinated with this spot.
