We love spending a day in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
You know we’ve made a few visits to Disney World’s wildest park over the past few days and that means we’ve noticed some CHANGES! So, we’re checking in with an update on everything new in food, construction, and merchandise.
Animal Kingdom Food Updates
We noticed that Flame Tree Barbecue had its opening time listed a little bit earlier than usual on the My Disney Experience app. It was listed as opening at 10:15AM.
The Joffrey’s Coffee and Tea Cart right near the entrance of Animal Kingdom had a Spinach and Cheese Croissant available. This pastry isn’t new to Joffrey’s but we wanted to give it an updated try.
This was a pretty good pastry and a GREAT option if you’re looking for a savory, grab-and-go option in the morning.
Restaurantosaurus had a surprising and hard-to-spot change when we visited. Notice anything different about the sign above the restaurant?
Animal Kingdom Construction Updates
Two new digital screens have been added to Disney’s Animal Kingdom, one by the bridge between Asia and Dinoland and another near Pizzafari headed towards Pandora.
Right now, the screens show health and safety messaging but they may have wait times in the future.
The bridge in Oasis near the waterfall has reopened from a brief closure!
If you’ve been to Animal Kingdom, you’ve probably stood and watched the gibbons hang out or play around in Asia.
Well during one of our visits, the Gibbons were being QUITE noisy. There must have been some serious monkey business to talk about — or should we say ape business since Gibbons are actually apes?
Animal Kingdom Merchandise Updates
Discovery Trading Co.
Now, on to the merchandise updates! We spotted a Cast Member removing the paper from inside the Native shoes. We’re not sure why!
Over at Riverside Depot, there were new Loungefly Card ID Holders for $20 each. There’s one with Mickey’s face…
…and one that’s more ear-centric.
African Carving Kiosk
And the African Carving Kiosk got our attention too. These souvenirs aren’t new but we were so intrigued by how each of them have such a personalized and individual look.
What do you think of the Carved African Walking Sticks?
And that’s all from Disney’s Animal Kingdom this time! As always, stay tuned to DFB for all the latest updates from Disney World and beyond.
