Well, Tree of Life, you’re looking particularly snazzy today!
You guessed it! We’re in Disney’s Animal Kingdom today to take a look at everything new in Disney World’s WILDEST park. After all, we love staying up to date on the AK happenings. Let’s take a look at ALL the updates in food, construction, and merchandise in Animal Kingdom!
Animal Kingdom Food Updates
As always, we’re starting with the food updates! In Windtraders we spotted this Pandora Expedition Trail Mix marked as new for $5.49. Interestingly enough, we’ve actually seen this mix before with the same ingredients — they’re just listed in a different order now. We’re not sure what’s up with that!
Yak and Yeti Local Foods Cafe has had a bunch of changes to the menu, most notably the addition of the Korean Fried Chicken Sandwich and the Teriyaki Chicken Salad. Honestly, we were pretty big fans of the sandwich. After all, they loaded us up with sauce, and we LOVE sauce.
The menu has also lost several options including the Teriyaki Beef Bowl, American Kobe Beef Hot Dog, Asian Chicken Wrap, Ginger Chicken Salad, single Pork Egg Roll option, and the smaller Chicken Fried Rice side option.
Animal Kingdom Construction Updates
We’re so sad to see it go!
Nearby, we spotted a new Pin Trading Experience location in the spot where Goofy used to have meet and greets.
Animal Kingdom Merchandise Updates
That’s all for construction and food, so let’s move on to the merch!
Perhaps our favorite merch find was this Lumiere and Cogsworth Spatula Set for $19.99.
We’d be smiling too if we were helping to bake a delicious cake!
Adding to the Jungle Cruise merchandise party we’ve been seeing around Disney World, we spotted this Jungle Cruise Pin Set for$24.99.
If you’re trying to get a little into pin trading (good on you, they’ll love it!), you can snag this new-to-us Winnie the Pooh Pin Starter Set for $32.99. It includes a lanyard and four Pooh pins!
And we spotted two cute new tees for $24.99! There’s this adorable Dug Shirt…
…and this COOL Scar Shirt!
We’re also loving these pretty, new-to-us Minnie Bow Socks for $14.99.
Over in Pandora, we spotted this WILD Pandora Windbreaker. Look, we guess this is a great option for anyone who LOVES the Na’vi River Shaman. If you want to make a statement, you CAN for $49.99.
These little Disney dioramas are a super fun puzzle to do as a fam, so we were psyched to find the new $16.99 Pandora Diorama.
Everest Merchandise Shop
That’s all for NEW merch but we did spot a section of Lunar New Year merchandise in the Expedition Everest gift shop.
Weird, right? The Lunar New Year was months ago! We guess they had some leftovers due to the closure of the Disney parks.
And there you have it! That’s ALL the newest updates from Animal Kingdom! Stay tuned with DFB and we’ll bring you all the news from Disney World. ‘Til next time!
