Hello from Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge!
Although we love just hanging out here and oohing and aahing at the animals on the savannas, we also spent some time checking out what’s new at the resort. So here are the latest updates!
Animal Kingdom Lodge Food Updates
Guests can pick up breakfast at The Mara from December 23rd through January 2nd. Items available include cinnamon rolls, muffins, cereal, fruit cups, and other standard quick breakfast foods.
The usual hot options, such as the Bounty Platter, Croissant Breakfast Sandwich, Fried Egg, and more are not currently available.
Uzima Springs Pool Bar
The snack options at the Uzima Springs Pool Bar haven’t changed. Guests can still get a Chili Cheese Hot Dog and assorted ice cream snacks here.
The specialty drinks menu includes an African Sunset, which is a frozen drink with mango rum, African Starr Rum, and mango and strawberry puree for $15. The Flamingo Mule contains Snow Leopard Vodka, Van Der Hum Liquor, ginger beer, mango and guava nectar, and lime juice and cranberry juice for $15.
The Safari Mudslide is Amarula Liquor, Kahlua, and Snow Leopard Vodka for $14. These drinks are only available at the Uzima Springs Pool Bar. And although the menu says “new,” they’ve been around for a while.
Animal Kingdom Lodge Merchandise Updates
We found some new to us Mickey and Minnie keychains! The Mickey Mouse Keychain has Mickey’s smiling face, as well as a red strap with Mickey’s signature on it.
The Minnie Mouse Keychain has Minnie’s beautiful face, complete with bow, with a pink strap with Minnie’s signature. Both keychains are $12.99.
We also spotted a white Animal Kingdom Lodge Sweatshirt that we saw earlier this year at the Zawadi Marketplace at Jambo House (which is now closed). The sweatshirt is $39.99.
Select holiday merchandise is on sale for 70% off! That means it’s time to stock up on holiday Minnie Ears for next year!
This also means that holiday stuff will likely be gone soon — so grab it now while you can!
We enjoyed our time at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, and we’ll be back soon with even more updates!
