Hello explorers! We’re back at Disney’s Animal Kingdom with another what’s new!
We were on the lookout for the latest food and merchandise in the park. Without further ado, let’s dive right in!
Animal Kingdom Food Updates
Over at Tiffins in Animal Kingdom, we noticed a returning favorite to the menu…Gobi Manchurian! The dish is made of crispy fried cauliflower, manchurian sauce, and green onion. You can currently grab it for $11.
This is listed on the menu as an enhancement to the main course, but we loved it and are so glad to see it back in Animal Kingdom!
Yak and Yeti
This placard has a QR code that allows guests to look at the menu while they wait to be seated.
A Cast Member told us that if the location does not have Simba pretzels available, Mickey pretzels will be there to replace them. So no matter what, guests will be able to get their pretzel fix!
Animal Kingdom Miscellaneous
On November 6th, we saw the game kiosk Fossil Fueler reopen in Dinoland. On our recent visit however, the game was closed.
According to Cast Members, the location will be open if they have enough Cast Members to work the booth. We hope to see this open again soon!
Animal Kingdom Merchandise Updates
Discovery Trading Company
Over at Discovery Trading Company, we found LOADS of pins! Several of them were ornament pins like this Winnie the Pooh Pin. The pin features Pooh floating away on a balloon with the words “Nobody can be uncheered with a balloon.” True that! This pin is $15.99.
The next one is a fully boxed pin based on the film Coco! Guests will get a surprise pin inside, and we love the design on the box! This pin is $15.99.
For all of the Disney villain fans, we found the Dr. Facilier Pin and it looks just like a tarot card! We think the box is a fun touch to him as a character for $15.99.
The next pin is sweet as can be! We spotted the Vanellope Van Schweetz Pin for $15.99. Plus, she comes in a box shaped like candy!
If you’re looking for more of a mystery, look no further than the 12 Days of Christmas Mystery Pin Collection! This collection is a limited release, so you can find some pretty cool pins in there! The box gives you a sneak peek of what could be inside. Each tree shaped box is $19.99.
We found some more limited edition pins, but this time you can see exactly what you’re getting! And the best part, you ALSO get a mystery pin!
Each box contains the revealed pin and a mystery pin. You can grab Tink, Stitch, Aladdin, or Pascal, each with festive gift boxes in hand. You can grab a box for $17.99.
If you can’t decide between those and want them all, you can grab the Limited Edition Holiday Pin Set. This gives you all four from the box AND Mickey Mouse in Santa gear! This set is $109.
Here at DFB, we are major fans of the meme pin sets. And now we’ve spotted the Nope Pin Set. This features Anton Ego, Maximus, Grumpy, and Zazu giving us their best disgusted faces. So funny! This set is $24.99.
One of the biggest items we found in the shop was the Limited Edition Advent Calendar Countdown Pin Set. This set is an advent calendar that reveals a mystery pin every day until Christmas. This is perfect for any pin collector! Guests can also grab this set online. This set is $245 which is A LOT, but you get 24 limited edition pins.
More Coco Pins were spotted at this store for $9.99 each. These perfectly capture the spirit of the movie!
And if you can’t get enough of Yoda, here is the Yoda Holiday Pin for $9.99. Looks like he’s using the Force to decorate the tree!
To celebrate the upcoming holiday, we also found the Limited Edition Thanksgiving Pin for $17.99.
Whew! That’s all the pins we found at this location, but let’s look at the other merchandise we found! We spotted the Spirit Jersey Mask for $12.99. It matches the holiday spirit jersey perfectly!
We also found some Bulova Watches featuring our favorite Disney characters! First up is Mickey Mouse looking dapper as always for $325.
Then Donald Duck with some fun blue accents to match his outfit for $375.
Even Tinker Bell has her own rectangular watch for $300!
And last but not least, Minnie Mouse is looking adorable on her gorgeous watch for $450.
We also found a new Citizen Watch based on the story of Cinderella. This watch is absolutely stunning!
The band features a royal blue and beautiful detailing. This watch is $250.
And that’s a wrap on our walk through Discovery Trading Co. Onto the next shop!

There are several mystery options that could be in your box including Cinderella and Dumbo!
