Walt Disney Parks & Resorts has announced more details for the forthcoming Table Service restaurant in the Discovery Island area of Disney's Animal Kingdom. The new restaurant being built behind Pizzafari will be named "Tiffins".

Here are the announced details:

Tiffins will celebrate the art of traveling, featuring a diverse menu drawing from places that inspired the creation of Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Open for both lunch and dinner, Tiffins will also include waterfront views from comfortable indoor and outdoor seating areas. And if you’re wondering about the story behind the name, “tiffin” is an Indian English word for a midday meal or a type of container used to carry food while traveling.

The project was first announced back in Late 2014 with the Flame Tree refurbishment (http://www.intercot.com/discussion/showthread.php?t=207474). After several project delays, the new location is scheduled to open in "2016".

Anyone know if this is a Disney restaurant or another third party like most of the other table service location in AK?
