Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom is officially open to the public and we’re back with more new updates!
There have been some changes to the way attractions and park entry is handled. Other than, that Animal Kingdom is just as WILD as we left it in March. We found a few new souvenirs while perusing the shops and discovered some interesting dining updates!
Animal Kingdom Food Update
Some of us are dependent on the Joffrey’s Coffee spot located outside the entrance in Animal Kingdom. It’s where we grab an iced latte before sprinting to Flight of Passage. The stand was open during Cast Member previews but was closed when we visited on opening day. So we will keep you updated on this Joffrey’s location!
The good news is you can still get your cup of morning magic once you’re inside the park. Earlier, we dropped the news that the infamous Pumpkin Spice Crème Brûlée Cold Brew is back at some Joffrey’s Coffee stands! Fall came early to Animal Kingdom too! You can get your pumpkin spice fix at Royal Anandapur Tea Company!
The sweet and spicy Korean BBQ Rib Tips and turkey legs were first introduced as specials on the Yak and Yeti Counter Service menu. They were later added to the permanent menu. They are still available but listed as specials once again. We’ll keep stopping by to see if they disappear from the specials or are here to stay.
Animal Kingdom Merchandise Update
Disney Mug Collectors are gonna love this one! We found a slew of brand new coffee cups featuring the Fab 5. The cute and cartoony cups show the adorable faces of Pluto, Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, and Donald.
We love to see our favorite characters muggin’ it on these mugs! You can find all of them at Riverside Depot.
The Lion King fans can work on their roar with the new Simba shirt we found! The comfy long-sleeve features the three besties, Timon, Pumbaa, and Simba.
It will work look great with the new Timon and Pumbaa MagicBand we spotted at Disney Springs too!
Last, but certainly not least, is this AMAZING Pumbaa hat we discovered. For 24.99, you too can get in touch with your inner warthog and sport this glamourous accessory. We’ve never felt quite so stylish. Here’s hopin’ the Bugs n’ Grubs Cone makes a comeback so we can really fit the part!
That’s it for today! We’ll keep hopping around Disney’s Animal Kingdom and the other parks while try to spot new goodies and old-favorites. Keep following us as we keep tabs on Disney World updates!
