What’s New in Disney’s Animal Kingdom: Squishmallows

Is Disney’s Animal Kingdom the most underrated park in Disney World?


It’s such a beautiful park full of trees (read – SHADE from the Florida sun), an entire land devoted to Dinosaurs (with so many amazing details), unique food, loads of exotic animals, an actual safari ride, and more! We recently headed over to Animal Kingdom to see what’s been going on since we were there last. Let’s get on with the updates!
