Thirsty River Bar & Trek Snacks

Thirsty River Bar & Trek Snacks – I was really excited to try this new “food place” on our last Disney trip. Located right next to Expedition Everest in Animal Kingdom, this grab-and-go spot helps round out this corner of the park.

Trying to kill time before our Expedition Everest FP+ window opened, and hungry because we’d not yet had breakfast, we moseyed up to Trek Snacks around 10:30 in the morning. I wanted to try the Banh Mi (a Vietnamese sandwich of roasted pork, pickled vegetables, cilantro, and Sriracha on a roll). Sadly, it wasn’t listed on the menu. I inquired with the Cast Members, and was told that they were still on the breakfast menu. The lunch menu started at 11 am. “Oh,” I said sadly. “But,” they said cheerily, “we have the sandwiches! We can sell you one!” Yay!

Now, my husband and I love us a good banh mi. We’ve even perfected the concoction at home. Although the Trek Snacks version of a banh mi was a decent, quick bite to eat, it wasn’t a true banh mi.

The Thirsty River Bar half of the establishment didn’t open until 11 am, so we used our Expedition Everest FastPass+ before returning to the bar for a tasty beverage.
