Welcome back to Disney Tidbits! In today’s post we will take a look at what is new and happening at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Christmas has arrived, new shop has opened and new animals are out on the safari, so lets go!
Christmas tree and decorations are up at the entrance of the park.
Pandora – The World of Avatar construction can be seen in the sky from many areas of the park.
At some areas in the park you can get a real close up view of the construction and the massive size of the floating island.
To the right of the Tree of Life a new shop just opened called Riverside Depot. A large selection of Disny merchandise can be found inside the shop.
2016 logo merchandise has started to appear on shop shelves.
A new Tiana MagicBand was recently released.
We also spotted a new Beauty and the Beast mini snowglobe.
Animal Kingdom features some of the most unique food offerings at any Disney theme park. Just check out the menu at this food cart.
The lines were not too crazy this day but walkways were still busy.
We decided to visit the Pangani Exploration Trail while waiting for our Kilimanjaro Safari FastPass return time.
The Kilimanjaro Safari only sported a 50 minute wait which isn’t too bad this close to the Christmas season.
We spotted the newly arrived Painted Dogs out on the safari.
Stopped for a Starbucks break and stared at some yummy Disney treats.
Pizzafari recently opened its doors again from a lengthy refurbishment and the menu featured some small changes.
Behind Pizzafari you can see the progress of the construction for the new table service restaurant Tiffin coming to Animal Kingdom.
You can likewise see this cool concept art for Pandora on one of the construction walls.
Flik from A Bug’s Life was out meeting guests.
Animal Kingdom has incredible photo opportunities around every corner.
Lively Indian dancing was in full swing next to Kali River Rapids.
That is all from our little trip around Animal Kingdom. Make sure to visit Inside the Magic for more Disney Tidbits in the future.
