Hello there, adventurers! Welcome to our latest roundup of What’s New in Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
Today we’ll chat about some menu updates, an adorable new cupcake, and everything else we found on our latest park walk. Let’s get started.
Animal Kingdom Food Update
At Africa’s Dawa Bar, we noticed a new specialty drink called Harambe Iced Tea. This drink consists of Don Q Rum, Snow Leopard Vodka, New Amsterdam Gin, Vanderhum Orange Liqueur, and orange juice, topped with Sprite.
You can try the Harambe Iced Tea for $13.58!
When we stopped by Yak & Yeti Local Foods Cafe, we saw that Sweet and Sour Tempura Shrimp has replaced the Korean BBQ Rib Tips on the printed menu, but the Rib Tips are still being offered as a Chef’s Specialty.
The Sweet and Sour Tempura Shrimp was previously a Chef’s Specialty item before officially being officially added to the printed menu.
We found a few menu updates over at DinoLand’s Restaurantosaurus Lounge as well. Sweet and Spicy Mixed Nuts are no longer on the menu, and Tiger Lager has replaced the Safari Lager.
Restaurantosaurus recently introduced a new burgers and sundaes dinner experience — check out our full review here!
This cupcake features marbled yellow cake, white frosting, and decorative drizzles of black frosting. Unfortunately, this cutie didn’t stay cute for very long because its features started melting really quickly. ?
Despite its melted appearance, the Zebra Cupcake was still super yummy! You can grab it from either Creature Comforts or Restaurantosaurus for $5.99 or a Disney Dining Plan snack credit.
Animal Kingdom Merchandise Update
The merchandise cart between Flame Tree Barbecue and The Feeding Ground had a new-to-us UP-inspired Grape Soda tank for $34.99.
Speaking of UP, Kevin was out and about during our visit and we had to snap a quick photo of him before we left! (She’s just adorable, isn’t she?)
