Africa in Disney’s Animal Kingdom is — depending on the season — home to a Shave Ice Cart. Currently you’ll find it near the village’s Harambe Market. And it’s serving up one of several specialty treats in celebration of the 25th Anniversary of The Lion King (not to mention the live-action film coming this July).
It’s the Asante Slush: Shave Ice with watermelon and mango passion-fruit flavored syrups!
You can also try it with the addition of Snow Leopard Vodka.
As with the Simba’s Sunset Dole Whip specialty Lion King snack over at Tamu Tamu, the serving is pretty huge! And the layering effect between the two flavors is a nice visual touch. It looks like a sunset, doesn’t it?
But essentially it’s simply a variation on the regular menu offerings at the Cart.
So, if you like to mix up your Shave Ice a bit, here’s your chance! (Though note that — for cool Lion King treats — our recommendation still goes to the Simba’s Sunset Dole Whip.) The Asante Slush will be available through the end of summer. And “Asante Sana” to you for joining us today for a WILD TIME in Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
