Welcome back, DFB friends! We’re here with another What’s New at Animal Kingdom!
And, we’ve got lots of food, entertainment, merchandise, and construction updates to share with you! So, let’s dive right on in!
Animal Kingdom Food Updates
Cue the “Circle of Life” ’cause the new Simba Popcorn Bucket makes us want to sing as loudly as possible!! (We can’t resist that sweet li’l face!)
The Lion Paw Cookie is an Animal Kingdom staple (and a pretty delicious one at that). And, just in time for Valentine’s Day, the iconic cookie has gotten a red and pink makeover! Um, we have MAJOR heart eyes for it. Pick one up today for $3.50 or 1 Disney Dining Plan snack cred!
If that paw-sitively adorable cookie made you hungry, you can make your way over to the Harambe Fruit Market for some of the breakfast items they’ve recently been offering! We’ve got our eye on that Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit. 😉
While we were passing by the Harambe Market with our morning sammie, we noticed the CUTEST illustration on the utensils dispensers! While they might not be new, we think the doodles are a great way to promote eco-friendly compost in a fun way!
Animal Kingdom Entertainment Updates
We’re trashin’ the camp AND heading over to meet Terk (our best pal)! The feisty gorilla was meeting guests outside of Creature Comforts when we were there, which is the same spot where Flik and Timon have previously been seen.
Animal Kingdom Construction Updates
It’s that time of the year where Kali River Rapids is undergoing its routine winter maintenance (even though we really miss it).
While the attraction is set to be closed from January 6th through March 21st for a refurbishment…
…guests can still walk up to the animal viewing area near the attraction.
Who do you think will be out to say hello to us today??
While we only hopped on Primeval Whirl at the beginning of the month, we’re going to have to a wait bit longer to ride the crazy time-traveling coaster again. Since the attraction is seasonal, Primeval Whirl is currently closed until its next dino-mite re-opening.
Animal Kingdom Merchandise Updates
We’ve got an entire closet of Disney merchandise, but we LOVE adding a new tee or two to our collection! And, the Parks Characters Shirt has our favorite pals and parks for $24.99.
While we may have spotted an entirely new line of retro merchandise earlier this week, we also spotted it in Animal Kingdom! Yaaaas!
Since it’s still a little chilly at the end of January, you can stay warm and look totally tubular in the Retro 70s Hoodie for $34.99…
…Retro 70s Sweatshirt for $54.99…
…and the Retro 70s Jacket for $64.99.
But, if you want to especially look far out, you can put on the Retro 70s Castle Tee for $24.99…
…or the Retro 70s Mickey Tee for $24.99. Who wouldn’t feel super groovy wearing these??
While you’re bopping around the parks to your favorite 70s jams, you can carry around the Retro 70s Drawstring for $19.99…
…with the Retro 70s Pin hooked on it for $17.99!
Oh, and don’t forget to put on your Retro 70s Crocs for $49.99. You’ll need some comfy shoes to trek across Animal Kingdom and dance the night away!
We’ll be taking ALL our coffee to work in these adorable Mickey and Minnie Ceramic Tumblers from now on! We spotted them at the Riverside Depot for $19.99 each!
Here’s the Mickey Ceramic Tumbler waving at us! What a swell way to get our caffeine fix!
And while the body of the tumbler is made of ceramic, it also comes with a plastic sippy lid which will keep our beverage nice and toasty!
The Minnie Ceramic Tumbler is equally adorbs! We’re sensing a real HIS and HERS situation is brewing here!
At Discovery Trading we stumbled upon an entirely new line of Vintage Mickey and Friends gear! We can’t wait to cozy up with this gray Vintage Mickey and Friends Sweatshirt for $44.99!
And this Vintage Mickey and Friends Hoodie for $54.99 is servin’ up some major Disney classic cartoon realness!
There’s even a matching pair of Vintage Mickey and Friends Sweatpants to go with for $44.99!
They feature the same colorful print as the hoodie and say “Walt Disney World” down the side of its leg!
For the younger set, we spotted this Vintage Mickey and Friends Youth Shirt for $24.99…
…as well as this adorable Vintage Mickey and Friends Youth Sweatshirt for $34.99!
Check out these sweet Vintage Mickey and Friends Youth Sweatpants we also spotted for $29.99!
And these new sets of Vintage Mickey and Friends Youth Socks really stole the show! Each pack costs $24.99 and features so many wonderful designs!
It’s hard to pick a favorite since each style seems to be a real contender!
This pair of socks with Mickey doing a little jig on them is really making us smile, tho!
And what goes best with socks? How ’bout some SHOES! We love these Vintage Mickey and Friends Youth Shoes we saw today for covering our kiddos’ little twinkle toes!
They cost $29.99 and read, “Mickey Mouse” across their velcro straps! LOVE!
We’re making plans to “Disney+ and chill” later on with this Vintage Mickey and Friends Blanket for $39.99!
It’s so fleecy and warm! Plus, we love hanging out with the Fab Five! Don’t you?
Last but not least, we now know we need this Vintage Mickey and Friends Tumbler in our lives after seeing it today!
Made of plastic, the cup has all our Disney favs! You can nab one for yourself for $19.99!
Well, that’s all for this What’s New at Animal Kingdom! We’ll catch you next time for more merchandise, food, entertainment, and construction updates!
