The Return of the Jungle Juice Slush, New Breakfast Options, Boozy Shave Ice, and More at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

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.

Welcome to Animal Kingdom!

Welcome to Animal Kingdom!

But we’re starting our tour around the Park with the return of an old favorite…

Ice Cold Treats (and Not-So-Much)

The Jungle Juice Slushy has returned to Mahindi!

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.

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

And Pandora’s Satu’li Canteen isn’t the only place serving up new breakfast options for Animal Kingdom guests nowadays.

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.

Heads up that you won’t find Churros (or the Bugs Sundae, now that we mention it) anymore at Dino-Bite Snacks.

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 Feeding Ground Menu

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 ;) .

Creature Comforts

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!)

    I am happy about the Lumpia portion size. 2 was too much for 1 person as a snack, especially since it is so sweet. Also, they need to bring back the curry chicken dish they had as a special at Yak and Yeti. It was very good.

  2. Marie says

    So happy the Lotus Bucket has dropped in price, it’s the first popcorn bucket I can actually imagine using again at home. Here’s hoping it stays at the lower price until I’m there in December!

  3. Essie says

    The Jungle Juice slushie looks wonderfully refreshing! I’m glad it’s back! Great report!

  4. Lauren says

    Wow the jungle juice slushy is back with a vengeance! $5.29 for a frozen non-alcoholic slushy is absurd! Looking back at your post about the jungle juice float from 2013, it was only $2.99.

  5. Shirley says

    Shouldn’t the sign read “Shave” Ice (minus the “d”)? That’s what it’s called in Hawaii. Disney should know this. They have it at Aulani.

  6. says

    Shirley — Yep — if it’s replicating the Hawai’i treat, it should be “shave” instead of “shaved”. Along with the confusion between “macaroon” and “macaron”, we see this faulty spelling sometimes.

  7. Maryssa says

    I’m sad to report that I went to Animal Kingdom yesterday to try the slushie goodness. The cast member informed me that the machine is broken again (it disappeared for several months previously due to machine issues she said) with no ETA on when it’s to be fixed :(

    Just left Animal Kingdom and they no longer have Jungle Jucie slushies. However, the Mo’ara Margarita at Pongu Pongu in Pandora is amazing.
