Welcome back, safari adventurers! We’re here with another What’s New at Animal Kingdom!
And, we’ve got plenty of merchandise and food updates to share with you so let’s dive right on in!
Animal Kingdom Food Updates
St. Patty’s Day is just around the corner, and we are ready to PARTAAAYY! That’s why we’re so excited to see the green and white decorations on our favorite Lion Paw Cookie. You can get your own sweet treat at multiple locations for $3.50 or a Disney Dining Plan snack credit (before giving your best roar like Simba).
Tiffins is a great place to relax and have a great meal during the day at Animal Kingdom (especially after that Flight of Passage rush). And, we hope you’re hungry because there are two new lunch plates being served up at the restaurant! You can have the Fattoush Salad and the Nasi Goreng Indonesian Fried Rice…
…before finishing with the Tiffins Trio so you get three desserts in one! ;D
Disney has been going green with their conservation efforts around the parks and resorts (like the installation of wall shampoo and conditioner in hotel rooms). So, it’s no surprise that Creature Comforts is rolling out Starbucks Reusable Straws for $1 ONLY!
The straws can be used in all your cold Starbucks drinks or even your cups back home! Let’s keep taking care of our planet with less waste, friends!
Craving more St. Patrick’s Day desserts? Then, the Mint-Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwich is basically a sweet dream at Dino Bites Snacks!
Two soft double chocolate chip cookies (with shamrock sprinkles, duh) are stacked high with a big scoop of mint-chocolate chip ice cream for $6.99 or a Disney Dining Plan snack credit. Yeah, it’s just as good as it sounds!!
Animal Kingdom Merchandise Updates
Although we’ve already seen it in Disneyland, the Blue Mickey Pin Trading Purse has made its way to the outdoor pin stand in DinoLand!
The purse comes with a strap for easy carrying around the parks, a golden outline around the blue fabric,…
…and SO MUCH ROOM for all the pins you want to collect and trade during your Disney World vacay for $39.99.
We told you that the Mickey Balloon Ears floated into Disney World this week (and they’re just too cute). While we’ve spotted them in Disney Springs, now they’re in Riverside Depot too!
The headband states that it’s going to be the “Best Day Ever,” which we totally believe since the iconic red Mickey balloons could brighten up any day!
The ABC Disney Collection has been taking the World by storm one letter at a time! We’ve seen the adorable themed mugs (and even a few differences with the Disneyland versions), but now there’s even MORE ABC Disney merchandise. You can bake and cook wearing the ABC Disney Apron for $34.99…
…or snuggle up in the ABC Disney Throw Blanket for $39.99.
Plus, all the ABC Disney Trinket Boxes have popped up in Riverside Depot featuring some of the best characters and rides in Disney World…
…with a little spot to store your jewelry or special things for $17.99 each.
Just look at the silhouette portraits of the Darling family, flying pirate ship, pixie dust…
…and all that signature green on the Peter Pan’s Flight ABCDisney Trinket Box!
Why are there so many songs about rainbows? And, why aren’t there more Kermit Patches?? ‘Cause we’re LOVING this adorable patch of Kermit playing along to “Rainbow Connection” (probably) on the banjo for $9.99!
If you thought that Loungefly backpacks couldn’t get cuter, then you HAVE to see the purr-ty Disney Cats Loungefly!
The black backpack showcases some of our favorite cats from Disney films, like the Aristocats, Oliver, Figaro, and Cheshire…
…with little balls of yarn and fish bones on the inside for $75. This is pawsibly one of our favorite Loungefly backpacks we’ve seen in the parks recently!
His powers might be beyond your mortal imagination, but we can’t WAIT to carry around the Mushu Shoulder Plush as we explore Disney World! This lil guy rests on your shoulder as you park-hop for $19.99 (and he looks so happy to be your new pal).
Animal Kingdom sure has your back when it comes to backpacks, purses, and the latest accessories! We’ll catch you next time for more food and merchandise updates!
