Spotted! Musical Tumbler in Disney’s Animal Kingdom

There’s a new souvenir cup at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and it’s something you just gotta see…

Actually, scratch that – this is something you just gotta hear, because this drink tumbler is MUSICAL!!

Found at various locations in Animal Kingdom, the Musical Tumbler is, first of all, eye-catching. These pictures show the mug at various angles so you can see every “side” of it.

The animals found all over the tumbler bring to mind the park’s icon, the Tree of Life.

But what makes this tumbler truly awesome is the handle. As the sign notes (pun alert!), the handle is an “Ocarina” (a wind flute).

You can see the holes in the handle, as well as the smaller hole in the mouthpiece that you blow into to create the sounds.

But wait — there’s more! The tumbler comes with instructions on how to play two Disney songs: “It’s a Small World,” and the Lion King’s “I Just Can’t Wait to be King”!

Here’s the thing… I immediately thought, “Wow, that’s cool.” And I definitely thought it looked great. But I assumed it would sound like one of those plastic flutes for kids. You know, like those toddler toys that come all in primary colors and when the kid starts to play it – bless their heart – it sounds like the world is coming to an end.

Then the guy next to me bought one. Now, I have no idea whether he was some sort of musical genius with an extensive history with woodwind instruments, but I was pretty impressed with what I heard. This thing actually sounds good.

What you get in your tumbler depends on where you make your purchase. At Harambe Popcorn, for instance, it’s filled with the Jungle Juice Slushie. I also saw it at Upcountry Beverages, where it’s filled with the Shangri-La Berry Cooler.

At Upcountry, there’s an additional tumbler for purchase: the Mask Tumbler. At $14.95, the Mask Tumbler is more expensive than the Musical Tumbler. That’s because it comes with your choice of Kali River Mango, Maharaja Lime, or Bali Hai Strawberry Margarita (or you can get all three available with the Triple Yeti Blast).

While it’s not musical, the level of detail on this tumbler – as with the musical one – is pretty fantastic. Here’s a look at all sides of it.

By the way, you can still purchase any of these beverages at their regular prices without the tumblers. That’s what I did with my Triple Yeti Blast. And now I’m sitting at my computer wondering why I’m drinking my water from a plain old cup that’s not also a FLUTE.

What do you think of the Musical and Mask Tumblers? Please let us know with a comment!

    The details are amazing. I assume these are a plastic/resin based item?

  2. Amy says:

    These are kind of cool! Would you guys ever consider compiling a list of souvenir cups and mugs and where they are available and/or popcorn buckets or treats containers? I’d like to get a collection going and it would be great to know how to tackle it. Thanks for the post!

  3. Colleen says:

    Will be very tempted to get both! I couldn’t help hoping the people in the rooms next to mine don’t buy them for their kids though… But hopefully the kids would be asleep by the time I got back to my room.

  4. Angelina says:

    Such a unique idea! I bet that land is very …uhh…musical :)

  5. Elizabeth says:

    Would these be available for purchase on-line ? We are not planning a visit but I would love both of these ! Thank you for sharing the pictures !

  6. CJ says:

    I have a collection of these souvenir mugs and popcorn buckets for the past 3 decades. I have used all of them but I like to look at them on my wall and admire them more. From time to time I do rotate them if they have images on other sides and I do have a couple on battery operated rotating discs for show. I would definitely add both of these (the Mask Tumbler and Musical Tumbler) to my collection!

    Boy, have I missed you guys! I just got my new computer set up and this the first place that I came; I’ve missed my DFB so much! :( But, all is well now. I think that the musical tankard could be a fun souvenir for those who are musical; if there is a nice note range, it would be fun to see how many Disney songs you could play on it.

  8. Eric says:

    How cool is that?!

  9. Mary says:

    Oh no! I just got back a few days ago and had no idea about this! Fortunately I’ll be back in November for the Wine & Dine Half, so this will be a must!

    What are Disney doing LOL
    Those things are going to be hilarious at 2am when everyone staggers back to their rooms full of triple sec playing that little “I just can’t wait to be king” riff!

  11. Amy says:

    This looks like so much fun! I’m going to have to get one and try it out.

  12. Marcos Valenca says:

    I second Mark: Are these plastic/ resin based tumblers?

  13. Cinderdeb says:

    I can see it now, my 13 year old who always loved making any kind off noise possible sniffing this one out, and driving the rest of the family nuts!, it is a good looking mug though!

  14. Corrina says:

    OMG – I want! Jungle juice slushie? Awesome cup? And you can whistle for your kids with it? Genius!

  15. Heather says:

    I really want a musical tumbler, but I want alcohol in mine. Wonder if they’ll let me switch if I pay the same price as the mask tumbler?

  16. Anna says:

    Is there any way to charge this to your dining plan as a snack?

  17. Marcos Valenca says:

    I don’t think so. There isn’t a single snack credit item costing US$ 11.99. Almost always snack credit items cost $6 or less.

  18. Trisha says:

    Are these made of plastic???

  19. Kelly says:

    I’m with Amy!! I want a list of souvenir cups. I have a couple, but I know there is more out there. I just learned about the new Mickey Pants Sundae. I wish there was a way to suggest articles to y’all other than in the comments.

  20. Lita says:

    Looks cool. Any idea on the volume and sizes of these? Also is the tiki one open or with a lid?

  21. Jenni says:

    Does anyone know if they still have these mugs?

  22. Pat says:

    Got my musical one back in Nov, (actually got a couple) will be looking for the Mask one on my next trip. I found it in Africa, across from Tusker House at a cart that also served nuts and other drinks in case anyone was wondering where in AK it was. Thanks for the info and pictures :)
