No matter how many times you’ve been to Disney World, it seems there’s always something new to enjoy!
Currently, we’ve been sampling all kinds of Halloween treats and finding LOADS of new Minnie ears. Today, we thought it’d be a perfect day to take a trip around Disney’s Animal Kingdom to see what new things we could spot there. Come along with us!
Animal Kingdom Food Updates
Zuri’s Sweets Shop is located in Africa in Animal Kingdom and is full of delicious and unique treats. During our most recent visit, we saw that lots of Halloween treats were available at this spot.
You could even snag a piece of that NEW Pumpkin Pie Rice Krispies Treat!
We spoke to a Cast Member who kindly let us know that Dawa Bar should be open Thursdays through Mondays.
So, if grabbing a drink from this spot is a must-do for you, be sure to plan your trip accordingly!
We spoke with a Cast Member who told us this location should be open on Saturdays and Sundays for now. We’ll keep checking back to see if this spot opens up on any other days.
Back in the Discovery Island portion of the park, we stopped by Flame Tree Barbecue. While we didn’t spot anything new on the menu, we did see that there were some new signs in the area that include pictures and descriptions of the items available.
We thought this was a great addition, as it will let guests get a clearer picture of what they’re ordering. It’s slightly dangerous for us though…just looking at those photos makes us hungry!
We also found a Halloween favorite at Flame Tree Barbecue — Halloween drink cups!
When we were there, they only had them in stock for large fountain beverages though so be sure to ask what they have available. We love all the little candy and Mickey designs on it!
Sometimes there’s just nothing better than enjoying a cool, refreshing drink from a cup that has an adorable Mickey jack-o’-lantern on it. It really gets us in the spooky spirit!
No trip to Animal Kingdom is complete, however, without at least a walk past the floating mountains in Pandora — The World of Avatar. While we were admiring all of the beautiful scenery, we noticed a new queue had been created out of tape for guests wanting to grab a Night Blossom or other snack at Pongu Pongu.
There was also a Cast Member holding an “End of Line” sign and directing guests within the queue.
So, if you’re hopping in line to grab a Pongu Lumpia, be sure to watch for the Cast Members’ directions.
Animal Kingdom Merchandise Updates
Discovery Trading Company
Our first stop of the day was at Discovery Trading Company, which is located in Discovery Island.
There, we spotted a new Doctor Pete’s Grape Soda shirt inspired by Pixar’s Up!
We love the design on this shirt and how the purple really pops against the gray background. It’s a nice way to showcase your love for Up in a subtle way that really only fellow fans with recognize.
This shirt was $24.99.
But, that Grape Soda Shirt wasn’t the only Disney t-shirt we spotted. There were LOTS of Disney t-shirts available at Discovery Trading Company.
They were also running a special where you can get Adult t-shirts for $22 each when you buy two.
If you’re stocking up on Disney tees for yourself and the family, be on the lookout for this special deal around Disney World.
We couldn’t take you on a trip to Disney’s Animal Kingdom without a few animals! When we hopped on Kilimanjaro Safaris this trip, we spotted some Ankole Cattle…
…as well as a beautiful Giraffe.
As we made our way around Animal Kingdom, we also spotted a majestic Gorilla sitting by a gorgeous waterfall.
It really was a beautiful sight to behold. Well, that’s all for us from Animal Kingdom. We’re constantly making our way around the parks, so be sure to come back for all the latest updates!
