Call it a little Disney Magic!
Mind blown? Yeah, mine too. You’re not seeing things…two of Magic Kingdom’s most beloved snack stops have switched places!
We’ve heard rumors, and now it seems to be happening: major changes are underway in Adventureland.
We’re still awaiting confirmation that a brand new restaurant might be coming to the area, but in the meantime, Aloha Isle and Sunshine Tree Terrace have swapped real estate.
And we have lots of brand new pictures of the change as it’s happening right now!
Here’s FIRST LOOK at the brand new Aloha Isle Sign! Clearly, the Dole sponsorship is still firmly in place.
Check out this photo of the NEW Aloha Isle locale!
As you can see from the menu pic below, NEARLY everything that you previously enjoyed at Aloha Isle is now available at this new (old? new?) location.
You can still enjoy Dole Whip, Dole Whip Swirl, Dole Whip Floats, fresh spears of Pineapple, and Dole Pineapple Juice, in addition to other drink options. (UPDATE: Please note, the option for Vanilla Swirl is no longer on the Aloha Isle menu.) The Souvenir Tiki Mug is also still on offer.
Currently, the orange flavored Dole Whip seems to be missing… more on that later.
And now, let’s check out the new Sunshine Tree Terrace!
The new Sunshine Tree Terrace sign has a retro vibe fitting the spot’s original opening date.
Now, let’s cover a couple of questions that this whole switcheroo leaves us with…because I know you guys have questions!
But AJ, what about Orange Bird???
So glad you asked. A little birdie told me (ha! couldn’t resist) that Orange Bird will be making the move very soon to the new Sunshine Tree Terrace. So rest easy, Orange Bird Fans! The little guy doesn’t have far to fly to his new roost.
Hooray for Orange Bird! But where’s that awesome Orange Bird Souvenir Cup that I’m dying to add to my collection? Will it return?? And while we’re at it, what about that Best-of-Both-Worlds Snack, the Orange Dole Whip? And What about Citrus Swirl Floats??
We spoke to a handful of awesome Cast Members, and basically, a lot is still up in the air. All of these favorite treats may return in the future, but for right now, it seems to be all about the basics — getting situated in the new digs and offering two of the most sought-after Magic Kingdom Treats without interruption. (And with Florida temps in the high 80s this week, this is a GREAT thing.)
So — your favorite two spots to get refreshing fruit-based goodies will both continue to exist — at least for now!
And while I’m busy blowing your mind, Turkey Leg Fans, you should listen up, too: starting March 25, you’ll find your favorite treat at Cool Ship in Tomorrowland, as the Jumbo Turkey Leg departs Frontierland and Liberty Square for the time being.
More to come, we’re certain — and we’ll bring you anything we know as soon as possible.
