Hello, DFB friends! We spent a day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, as well as at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge!
So what’s new since the last we visited these two locations? Keep reading to find out!
Animal Kingdom Food Updates
ACE Mobile Cart
We noticed that the ACE Mobile Cart now haws the Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin in the mornings.
We’ve seen this muffin in other locations at the park, too. It’s not only MEGA pretty with that oddly perfect swirl of cream cheese on top, but it tastes pretty great too!
We also noticed the cart sells coffee in the mornings! Gotta’ get that caffeine jump start at the beginning of the day, right? A cup is $3.50.
Sure, it’s not Starbucks, but sometimes you just want a basic cheap cup of joe, are we right?
Harambe Fruit Market
If you’re looking to get your Mickey pretzel fix, you’re in luck — Harambe Fruit Market still has the Mickey pretzels!
Animal Kingdom Merchandise Updates
Chester & Hester’s Dinosaur Treasures
We saw a SWEEEET Mermaid Beanie at Chester & Hester’s! The knit cap has a mermaid scale pattern on it, with a purple pom-pom on top. It also has “Mermaid” embroidered at the bottom with Ariel’s Dinglehopper!
This beanie is $21.99. Hey, mermaids have to keep their heads warm, too!
Animal Kingdom Construction Updates
The mysterious little building in Kilimanjaro Safaris is coming right along — construction almost seems to be complete.
We can’t wait to find out what this is for.
Animal Kingdom Other Updates
We noticed that many of the attractions at Animal Kingdom now have signs telling guests that they aren’t allowed to eat or drink once they get in line for those rides.
We noticed them most recently at Kilimanjaro Safaris, Triceratop Spin, and Dinosaur. We’ve seen these signs throughout Disney World, but we’re starting to see a lot more of them!
Animal Kingdom Lodge Food Updates
Maji Pool Bar
Over at Animal Kingdom Lodge, the Maji Pool Bar has the same two food items it had back in October. One is a Roast Turkey Sandwich on whole wheat bread with arugula, bacon, and Sambal mayonnaise for $9.29. The other is a Tuna Salad Pita Platter for $9.99.
It looks like these two items are sticking around for the time being!
Animal Kingdom Lodge Construction Update
The Mara is still closed, but we noticed a small construction area set up just outside.
There’s no indication of what this construction area is set up for, though.
Animal Kingdom Lodge Lobby
We also noticed signs in the lobby informing guests of the upcoming scheduled power outages at the resort. These intermittent outages will begin on November 19th at 11:59PM and end on November 20th at 4AM.
Guests can get updates on the power outages from their in-room TVs and in-room voicemails.
That’s pretty much it for our time around Animal Kingdom and Animal Kingdom Lodge, but we’ll be back soon with even more updates, so stay tuned!
