Sure, there’s plenty of new stuff to check out at Animal Kingdom these days, what with Pandora — The World of AVATAR still less than two months old.
But we’re starting our tour around the Park with the return of an old favorite…
Ice Cold Treats (and Not-So-Much)
Returning as mysteriously as it vanished a few months ago, we were pumped to see this freezy version of POG Juice (Passion Fruit, Orange, and Guava) back in Africa’s Harambe Village. As before, you’ll only see it listed on the main menu with the inclusion of the Musical Tumbler.
But if you read the very small print on the Musical Tumbler sign, you’ll see you can still get the Slushsy on its own for $5.29.
Just down the way, Harambe Fruit Market has some new treats up its sleeve.
You can now grab some Flame-Grilled, Butter-Dipped, and Berbere-Spiced Corn on the Cob!
Can’t you just smell it?
Still, if you find it a little too warm for anything “Flame-Grilled,” you might opt for some Shaved Ice instead, available in Watermelon, Mango-Passion Fruit, or Pina Colada.
Check out those spiked options on the menu, too!
Pandora’s Pongu Lumpia
We’ve already got a small change to the menu at Pongu Pongu — Pandora’s drink station — to report.
Pongu Lumpia, the station’s signature snack of pineapple and cream cheese filled spring rolls — has changed in serving size.
Now you receive one Pongu Lumpia for $2.99 (as opposed to 2 for $4.50 as previously served). Blergh.
New Breakfast Options
Local Foods Cafe (a/k/a Yak & Yeti Counter Service) is now serving a full breakfast menu through 10:30 am, including English Muffin Sandwiches, Breakfast Burritos and Tacos, and Hash Brown Bites.
The regular Lunch and Dinner menu has seen some changes as well. Say “So long” to the Roasted Vegetable Cous Cous Wrap, and “Hello” to Vegetable Tikka Masala.
HEY-OOOHHH from Dinoland, U.S.A.!
The Churros have been relocated to Dino Diner, where they’ve taken the place of Cinnamon-Glazed Almonds and Pecans on the menu.
Discoveries in Discovery Island
We found a price DROP in Discovery Island (perhaps that should’ve been the headline for this post )!
The Lotus Popcorn Bucket can now be found at The Feeding Ground popcorn-and-more stand for $11.29 (as opposed to the previous $15.99 price tag).
AND it’s still refillable!
And we wrap with a very little something, but we know some of you may be quite excited to hear it… out first Pumpkin Sighting of 2017 has already taken place .
Find Pumpkin Bread back again at Creature Comforts (and perhaps your local Starbucks, too?). (And FYI, we found pumpkin and pecan tarts later in the day at one of the Disney resorts…so if you’re longing for Fall temperatures and flavors, they’re on their way!)
Thanks for joining us at Animal Kingdom! And — as they say — we hope you had a WILD TIME!!
