What’s New in Animal Kingdom: 2 New Treats and an Adorably Strange Stitch Mug

Hello from Disney’s Animal Kingdom!

How gorgeous is this?!

We’re here checking out anything new that pops up around this beautiful park, so come with us to see what we found!

Animal Kingdom Food Updates


Over in DinoLand U.S.A. we found the perfect sweet treat to cool you down in the hot summer heat (hey, we rhymed!). Take a look at the new Pineapple Upside-Down Shake from Restaurantosaurus!

Drink up!

It’s a vanilla milkshake with pineapple caramel sauce, cake crumb-coated rim, pineapple wedge, whipped cream, and a cherry on top!

A lovely summer treat

This was absolutely delicious, but we did think it could have a little more pineapple flavor for $8.99!

Eight Spoon Cafe

Eight Spoon Cafe reopened a few days ago in Animal Kingdom, but we just wanted to remind you about the incredible Baked Macaroni & Cheese with Pulled Pork because, hello, YUM!

This is making us hungry…

The macaroni also comes with coleslaw, pickles, and barbecue sauce on top.

Could you ask for a better view to eat mac n cheese?

You can get it over at Eight Spoon Cafe for $6.79!

Anandapur Ice Cream Truck

We spotted this patriotic Star-Spangled Sundae at the Anandapur Ice Cream Truck!

Grab the pic quick, before it melts!

The sundae is blueberry and vanilla soft-serve ice cream with a strawberry compote, served in a waffle-cone bowl!

Great for Independence Day!

It was SO GOOD. We highly recommend this sundae while you’re trying to get in the spirit for 4th of July! Get it for $6.49.

Animal Kingdom Merchandise Updates

Riverside Depot

While shopping around Riverside Depot, we found these ADORABLE Disney Tails Pet Graphic Tee featuring Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck!

The best of friends!

Are you kidding us with this cuteness?! You can let your doggo know they’re your bestie for $24.99!

Where’s our matching shirt?

We also found this cool Stitch Hat, which has some GIANT ears!

You won’t get lost in a crowd with this thing on!

And it has a bill that flips up showing Stitch’s mouth, creating an illusion that looks like he’s…about to eat you?

Do you have something to say, Stitch?

It’s definitely an interesting piece of headware! You can grab it for $24.99.

And then we found this odd Stitch Sculpted Mug the other day, and we can’t decide if it’s cute or weird!

Hi, Stitch!

You could put a cookie in his mouth while you drink tea! But the inside is more shallow than it appears.

Not as much space as you would think!

You can get the Stitch mug for $22.99!

Animal Kingdom Additional Updates:


The drums in Pandora no longer have stickers on them telling you not to touch! Here’s what they looked like before:

Pandora Drums

And now the stickers are gone!

Pandora drums

However, when we tried to hit them, the sound effects weren’t working…maybe soon though!

We wanna make music!
