What are you waiting for? Let’s take a trip to Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
Animal Kingdom Food Updates
Dawa Bar had a new Mango Punch Cocktail for $14 in honor of Asian American Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander Heritage Month in May. This new drink is made with Parrot Bay Coconut Rum, Stoli Vanil Vodka, mango purée, and rice milk, and we found it very refreshing!
It wasn’t overly sweet and the booze flavor wasn’t very strong, which could be good or bad (aka dangerous) depending on what you prefer! If you like the taste of mango, you may want to give this a try.
Thirsty River Bar had a new Boba Tea for $5.99 on its own or $14 with alcohol. It’s made with chilled honey-infused black tea paired with tangy sour apple boba balls — but does sour apple go with black tea?
Turns out, it does! The drink was cold and flavorful and we loved how the sweet honey balanced the bitter black tea, and the popping boba was kind of like apple Jolly Ranchers. If you enjoy tea, this would be a good drink to try!
Animal Kingdom Construction Updates
Now when it comes to construction, we saw tram drivers training.
We noticed mesh fencing in the elephant preserve area on a ride on Kilimanjaro Safaris.
The dinosaur drinking fountain was working once again in DinoLand U.S.A.!
And not far from there, the Mammoth Marathon game was closed.
Adventurer’s Outpost received some changes over the last few days. We noticed that the Cast Member standing area was uncovered and the Lightning Lane sign was missing. Could this mean we’ll be seeing characters here again soon?
And in the bazaar near Expedition Everest, a sign celebrating Asian American Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander Heritage Month was on display.
There are also a number of special treats you can get throughout Disney World in May in honor of this celebration!
