What’s New at Disney’s Animal Kingdom: A Loungefly Backpack and ‘Ratatouille’ Minnie Ears

An occupational hazard of working in the Disney World parks every day is that we have to resist the temptation to purchase every fun new souvenir we find. Sometimes it’s not easy to limit ourselves to our merchandise budget!

Disney’s Animal Kingdom

If you have the same problem that we do of a weak will when it comes to cool Disney items, you shouldn’t read this post. Seriously, just turn back now while you still can. Because on a recent trip to Disney’s Animal Kingdom, we found more than 40 (!!) new souvenirs, including Minnie ears, a Loungefly backpack, and the cutest snack-themed plush EVER.

Before we get into the new items, we have to ask — have you downloaded the free DFB checklist for Animal Kingdom? Our list will help you prioritize your top choices and avoid missing out on anything you want to do in the park.
