Welcome to our latest roundup of What’s New in Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
It was a dreary day in the park, but that didn’t stop us from checking out all the new items, including a super cute cookie! Let’s dive into what we found.
A couple months ago, we told you about the new holiday celebrations coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom this year. Starting November 8th, Animal Kingdom will ring in the Christmas season with NEW entertainment and decor.
Today, Disney World has released new concept art for the holiday happenings at Animal Kingdom!
The live-action version of The Lion King finally comes out July 19 and we can hardly wait! In celebration of the upcoming film, Disney’s Animal Kingdom has introduced some awesome new items including Simba and Nala plushes and a drum souvenir popcorn bucket!
TODAY, we found even MORE Lion King merchandise at the park and we can’t wait to tell you about it!
Circle of Flavors: Harambe at Night, an exciting new dining event coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom, will begin on July 24 and we can hardly wait! On select nights from July 24-October 23, attendees will embark on a 3-hour progressive dining adventure in this beautiful park.

Jambo from Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
Tusker House Restaurant
Time to visit one of our favorite character dining locations: Tusker House! Tusker House is located in Animal Kingdom’s African village of Harambe and offers a character buffet for breakfast and lunch and a “family style dinner buffet” (really just a buffet — no family style service), also with characters!
One added element of dining at Tusker House is the opportunity to reserve the Rivers of Light Dining Package here, which saves a seat at Animal Kingdom’s newly-revamped Rivers of Life: We Are One nighttime spectacular. Generally, the price differential between the character meal and the dining package is pretty small here, so you may find it’s worth the slight splurge to score that reserved seating.
We weren’t after the Dining Package this time, but we sure were excited to see if the food and experience at Tusker House lived up to its past quality. And we ended up eating TWO full meals at once, which we really didn’t expect! (Read on to find out how we did it!)
We’ve got a lot of food to share with you, so let’s get going!
Tusker House is a charming restaurant located on your left-hand side in Harambe as you head toward Kilimanjaro Safaris. Check in is at a stand near the Dawa Bar, and you’ll be given a pager. Here you’re welcome to glance at the menu — but keep in mind it’s pretty generic because it’s a buffet! (Don’t worry: we’ll get more specific, and we have photos of EVERYTHING below!)
If you’ve ever been to Disney World with little ones, you likely have experience with renting strollers. Stroller rental is a service that’s long been offered at Disney World parks.
But as of today, guests in Disney’s Animal Kingdom may find some additional rental options available, as the park has begun testing NEW strollers!
Hello from Disney’s Animal Kingdom! We’re bringing you What’s New — and it’s not a whole lot, but you’ll want to come along for some primate news. And primate puns. So get off the monkey bars, and let’s go play!
