The Animal Kingdom is celebrating the arrival of the Hakuna Matata Time Dance Party, but that isn’t all that’s going on here!
We spotted a new photo op, some new food options, and new merchandise on our latest visit to Animal Kingdom.
The holidays are REALLY on now in Walt Disney World…
… and we’ve seen the crowds and the attraction wait times to prove it!
Fortunately, in Animal Kingdom there are lots of new and limited time eats (in addition to all sorts of longtime favorites) to serve the increased number of guests.
Because, as we always say, the best thing about more crowds in Disney World is MORE FOOD!!! [Read more…]
We found a bunch of changes in Animal Kingdom when we were there visiting. Check out what we found on our culinary safari of Disney’s Animal Kingdom this week!
We’ll start our tour out where we always to – on Discovery Island.
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!
Creature Comforts (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!
Good news for coffee lovers out there who don’t want to stand in a Starbucks line for a cup of regular brewed coffee – the hot dog cart located near Pizzafari and Tiffins now has coffee available starting at park open and is typically available until around 1pm.
Nomad Lounge has some new menu items available – and these are included on their allergy-friendly menu. Items include:
The chefs at Tiffins have been busy! There is a new lunch tasting menu as well as other new items on their menu including Peaches and Cream appetizer, Crispy Corn Cake entree, and a Tiffins Dessert Trio. The Lunch Tasting Menu is served from 11:30 – 3:30 and is $35.00 per person. It includes choice of one appetizer and one entree OR choice of one entree and one dessert.
The DFB is back with another fun What’s New at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom and Animal Kingdom-Area Resorts!
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.
Hey Guys! We’re back with another DFB Video today, and we’re getting down to the serious business of MILKSHAKES!
There are dozens of milkshake options in Disney World, but we’ve narrowed down the playing field to the top 10. We also give our thoughts in this video on the trend of “over-the-top” milkshakes that’s become popular in Disney World and at Universal Studios.
Y’all already know about the new grown-up drinks being served up in Pandora at the Pongu Pongu lounge, but that’s not the only place you can get something new and boozy in the Animal Kingdom! Nosiree!
If you happen to find yourself on the other side of the park in the land of cartoonish dinosaurs, stroll up to the window of Trilo-Bites and take a gander at their (changing-with-some-frequency) little menu.
Happy weekend and welcome to March! We’re so excited that it’s finally March because that means the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival has started. And that means food, lots of delicious food (and of course flowers).
At the end of the week we’re headed to the 2017 Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival. Check out the full booth menus for the DCA Food and Wine Festival!
And don’t forget, the 2017 Epcot Food and Wine Festival starts in August this year! Whew! We’re going to be a very busy bunch here at DFB!
We have a lot to share with you this week, so let’s jump right in…
Animal Kingdom is alive with activity lately, and the hits just keep on coming!
Last year we were celebrating the grand opening of Tiffins and Nomad Lounge (hello, deliciousness amidst some of the most pristine decor we’ve ever seen!), and still 2017 is shaping up to be even more incredible.
But we’re always on the lookout for new dishes at our old favorites, so on a recent visit, we stopped at Trilo-Bites.
You know Trilo-Bites as a seasonal (e.g. hardly ever open) counter service stop in Dinoland, land of the giant cartoon dinos and carnival-style games. Trilo-Bites’ previous menu goodie was the Pulled Buffalo Chicken Waffle Sandwich, which was truly awesome. This time, we discovered another Buffalo chicken incarnation: Buffalo Chicken Chips.
Whew! It sure has been a news-y few weeks for Disney World! From the debut of the long-awaited Rivers of Light show in Animal Kingdom, to the announcement of a brand new fireworks spectacular on the way to Magic Kingdom, to the return of another annual Festival at Epcot: the 2017 Flower and Garden Festival.
But it sure doesn’t stop there, because we’ve got even more news to explore… by checking out WHAT’S NEW around Walt Disney World! [Read more…]
