Welcome back to another roundup of What’s New in Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
Today we’re talking about the latest menu changes and new merchandise we found in the park, including some new pins!
Let’s get started!
Animal Kingdom Food Update
The Shave Ice Cart saga has continued! A couple weeks ago, we told you that we didn’t see the cart during our visit, but instead, they were selling the Shave Ice from the old Ribs Shop window in Harambe Market. Last week, the cart had returned, but this week, the cart was gone again!
Guests could grab Shave Ice from the Ribs Shop window once again during our latest visit.
These cinnamon buns come with a coffee-caramel dipping sauce and we thought they were absolutely delicious.
Various popcorn carts around Animal Kingdom still had Mickey’s Birthday refillable buckets and The Lion King Drum Buckets, but we did not spot any Halloween-themed buckets.
Animal Kingdom Merchandise Update
The merchandise cart between Flame Tree Barbecue and The Feeding Ground had a lot of UP-themed items, including a Grape Soda shirt ($34.99) we hadn’t seen before.
We spotted several items we didn’t recognize in Riverside Depot, including a light-up Mickey ears keychain ($12.99)! The keychain has still and animated settings, and it illuminates with blue lights.
Also new to us was a Mickey bottle opener keychain for $12.99.
For all the pin collectors out there, these next two merch items from Riverside Depot are for you! We found a Limited Edition Goof Troop Kingdom Consoles Pin for $17.99…
…and an Anna and Elsa pin set for $14.99!
