Good Morning, Explorers! Let’s have a wild time out and about at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Today marks the 5th Anniversary of Pandora — The World of Avatar, and we know there is special anniversary merchandise to be found. Let’s go on the hunt!
Three new pins, a tumbler, and a magnet were found in Windtraders, and each honor the lands 5th anniversary.
These new items join the anniversary merchandise that was released last month.
We also discovered a new purple banshee shoulder plush.
After purchasing our Pandora – The World of Avatar merchandise, we decided to take it back to the car and see if the trams were running. We saw the cast members having a ribbon-cutting ceremony to welcome back the trams after 801 days.
Of course, we hopped aboard! You can experience a ride on this tram here.
KiteTails is now offering shorter shows, on a rolling schedule from 9:15 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. The shows are broken up into four shorter shows, approximately three minutes in length. They rotate between “The Lion King” and “The Jungle Book.”
In between the shows, flotillas pass through, and the KiteTails cast members reset for the next show.
You can watch the new updated shows here.
Say “goodbye” to “Finding Nemo: The Musical.” The Theater in the Wild is preparing for the new show “Finding Nemo: The Big Blue… and Beyond!”
Recently, Red Carpet Dreams was removed from Genie+. Today, we saw that Adventurers Outpost has removed its Lightning Lane signage, as well.
Time for some shopping! Inside Island Mercantile, we found two new youth denim items.
We are “Turning Red” for this new plush.
Lastly, a new Vault Collection button-up shirt is now available.
We are ending our day waving at the Fab 50 Statues! Thanks for joining us today, and we will see ya real soon.
