Review: Hand-Carved Turkey Sandwich From The Mara At Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge July 20, 2015


We have always loved the Hand-Carved Turkey Sandwiches at The Mara in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge – Jambo House inside Walt Disney World Resort! The sandwich is now being offered during the week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and we stopped in this past Monday (July 20, 2015) for a chance to enjoy it again.

The sandwich itself is actually pretty simple. A nice white bun with delicious thick, carved turkey and cheddar cheese slices. The specialty portion of this sandwich is that it is topped off with a mayonnaise based cranberry sauce. The turkey is ALWAYS good and moist, and we are never disappointed with this choice.


We usually pick couscous as our side. This dish is one of my favorites, and it is so unique. Filled with vegetables such as corn, red peppers and purple onions – the dish is outstanding. If the couscous doesn’t appeal to you, the mashed potatoes – while similar to instant – are a good selection, or you can get fries, house-made chips or coleslaw.

The lunch price for this meal is $9.49, and it more than fills up 2 people.

Thanks for reading and let us know your thoughts!
