Greetings Wilderness Explorers!
We’re back in Animal Kingdom today checking out any and alllll the new updates around the park! Animal Kingdom loves to sneak new snacks into one of the various dining locations, and we love finding them. So, check out everything that’s new in food, construction, and merchandise in the wildest Disney World park!
Animal Kingdom Food Updates
First off, a NEW cupcake! Thanksgiving is upon us and that means that we’ve spotted the Thanksgiving Cupcake all around Animal Kingdom. This treat looks similar to last year’s Thanksgiving Cupcake but has different flavors. This one is a cinnamon cake filled with pumpkin mousse that’s topped with a buttercream and chocolate turkey! Gobble it up at Restaurantosaurus or Creature Comforts for $5.99!
For other seasonal treats, we spotted some super cute Candy Cane Brownies at Royal Anandapur Tea Company. These guys are adorable and a classic flavor combination. Peppermint and chocolate? Yes, please!
Animal Kingdom Construction Updates
We’ve got big news from Dinoland! Primeval Whirl is back open! We found out a while back that this ride would be transitioning to seasonal operation, it is now open again as a seasonal attraction. So go get your time travel on while you still can! This attraction is currently showing times through January 4th, but after that, the future operation for the attraction is unknown!
Animal Kingdom Merchandise Updates

And finally, let’s wrap it up with merch. Our first stop is Discovery Trading where we spotted the new line of 10th Anniversary Avatar Merchandise. You can also find the collection over at Windtraders. There’s this pretty Stainless Steel Water Bottle for $24.99…
