Let’s take a trip to Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
We’ve got a quick update about all things new in Animal Kingdom, so let’s go!
Animal Kingdom Food Updates
One of our favorite snack spots, the Eight Spoon Cafe, reopened in Animal Kingdom!
Now we can once again nom on baked macaroni and cheese and even a Pulled Pork Jelly Donut Sandwich. The Eight Spoon Cafe is open daily from 10:30AM to 2:30PM.
We did a full review on all the main menu items! And you have to hear our thoughts!!

The Thirsty River Bar and Trek Snacks is now opened on both sides, meaning you can order from either side again.
As Disney World continues to reduce social distancing, we are seeing more lines open up, along with some of our favorite pre-shows returning.
The Thirsty River Bar and Trek Snacks is located in Asia and serves drinks and snacks, including popcorn!

The Dawa Bar has their special Bloody Mary mix back!
Last time we visited, the bartender warned us that they only had bottled Bloody Mary mix and no garnish. But now they once again have their special mix and candied bacon garnish!
The Dawa Bar is located next to Tusker House in Africa and is open from 10:30AM to 6:30PM.

Animal Kingdom Merchandise Updates
Now we have a few merchandise updates! At Riverside Depot, we found this patriotic Mickey pin for $9.99.
In Asia, we found these new Yak & Yeti towels. They are $20 each and come in blue and pink.
In Dinoland, we discovered that the Dino Institute has been redone. There was still some dinosaur merchandise, but not as much.
There was no longer any space merchandise, and it was replaced by MagicBands and other Disney merch.
Zuri’s Sweets Shop
And last but not least, we found a new souvenir cup at Zuri’s Sweets Shop!
For $10.99, you can buy the Disney Parks Life Souvenir Cup with your choice of a red or yellow lid and the price includes Goofy’s Glacier!
