    Has anyone ever seen one there?
    I have not.
    On another forum a poster stated:

    "When we stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge a young boy had his mouth attached to the bottom of the soft-serve ice cream machine going full tilt at Mara. At the time I was disgusted."

    I question whether that happened at Mara.
    Gasparilla Grill had one.
    Captain Cook's had a Dole Whip self serve machine.

    Has anyone ever seen a self-serve ice cream machine at Mara?

    I don't remember ever seeing one at the Mara, but have not been for over a year.

    I'm fairly confident there isn't one. Seriously though, that's pretty gross!

    There is no self-serve ice cream machine at the Mara.

    Agree. And I don't think there ever was one.
    I question whether the reported event ever happened anywhere.
    But we can be fairly certain it didn't happen at the Mara.
    I really question if it ever happened at all, or if its intent was to kind of turn people off AKL.
    I can't really imagine that happening anywhere.
