Hello again from Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
Let’s go over all the new food news, merchandise, and construction updates!
Animal Kingdom Food Updates
The Dino Diner reopened! Located in Dinoland, U.S.A., the Dino Diner has classic theme park foods like hot dogs and churros. We tried the corn chip pie, chili-cheese dog, and churro with chocolate sauce.
It’s great to have another snack spot reopen in this land, and we did a full review!
Zuri’s Sweets Shop
Zuri’s Sweets Shop had a Fourth of July themed Goofy Glacier, including Blue Raspberry, Lemonade, and Strawberry for $4.99.
Goofy’s Glaciers have all kinds of flavors, and this was a pretty fun and patriotic mix!
At Restaurantosaurus, we noticed the self-serve condiments are back!
For people who do not prefer packets of condiments, this is great news.
We discovered not one, but TWO reopened snack carts! One was located near Expedition Everest…
…while you can find the other snack cart across from Trilo-Bites.
Two reopened snack carts means more snacks, so we’re on board!
Animal Kingdom Construction Updates
Over in Dinoland, all the carnival games were open again!
The open carnival games include fan favorites like Whack-A-Packycephalosaur and Wammoth Marathon.
If you’re a Dinoland games fan, maybe you should plan a visit soon!
Animal Kingdom Merchandise Updates
At Riverside Depot, we found a new Captain American MagicBand! “The First Avenger” MagicBand costs $29.99.

These are pretty big pins for the price!
