If all the prehistoric partying at the Animal Kingdom’s Donald’s Dino-Bash has made you hungry as a Christmas caveman, then we’ve got a solution!
We’re headed to Animal Kingdom for their biggest holiday celebration ever!
This year, the park is getting in on the holiday action with new offerings, decor, and treats! We’ve seen Peppermint soft-serve, and the Christmas lion paw cookie, but if you’re getting just ONE thing at Animal Kingdom during the holidays, make it this!
Welcome to Animal Kingdom
! We’re exploring the Park to discover What’s New! Come along!
What’s New in Animal Kingdom’s Decor
The Lion King is taking over Animal Kingdom
, and that’s clear right from the parking lot! [Read more…]
There are always new things to discover in Disney’s Animal Kingdom! This week we wandered through the newly re-opened Tree of Life Garden, enjoyed cupcakes as well as some Tasting Sampler treats that are sticking around, found a spot serving Irish Coffee, and spotted new Lion King Family Pride shirts for the whole family!
Now that the Otter Grotto is open, the Tree of Life Garden paths are completely open again, too; they were blocked during the refurbishment of the Otter Grotto. We enjoyed a walk along the garden path on our visit.
The Animal Kingdom called out to us and we had to visit this week! We found so many new food items AND new merch that we had to make our regular “What’s New” into two posts! We’re tackling food first, of course!
Disney World’s Animal Kingdom Discovery Island New Menu Items
(this park’s Starbucks location) is offering a new Strawberry Cake Pop that we think is smiling at us! It’s really delicious if you’re a strawberry fan!

This Funfetti Donut Cake Pop at Creature Comforts is super fun! And since it’s shaped like a donut, that makes this cake pop breakfast-approved, right? You can find these at all the Starbucks in Disney World for a limited time.
