What’s New at Animal Kingdom: The Yeti Sundae is Back!

We’re back with news from Disney’s Animal Kingdom!

Tree of Life

This week a specialty sundae has been taken off the menu, and one quick service restaurant has made some construction progress! Take a look at what’s new in Animal Kingdom right here.

Animal Kingdom Food Updates

Anandapur Ice Cream Truck

The colourful Kite Tails Sundae has been removed from the Andandupar Ice Cream Truck menu. This specialty sundae came out at the same time as the Disney Kite Tails daytime show debuted in Animal Kingdom.

Kite Tail’s Sundae

The KiteTails Sundae has been replaced with Yeti Sundaewhich we saw back in 2021. This sweet treat is made with Chocolate soft serve topped with vanilla soft serve, blue cake crumbs, blue sugar, snowflake sprinkles, and a little chocolate yeti topper. So much blue!

Yet Ice Cream Sundae

The cake crumbles taste like vanilla cake, but this is otherwise a fairly basic ice cream sundae! If you like ice cream and Expedition Everest, it’s worth a try.

Joffrey’s Coffee

Joffrey’s Coffee is celebrating Disney World’s 50th anniversary with personalized coffee sleeves! These sleeves have a cute 50th anniversary designand you can write in your Disney World plans right on the sleeve.

This looks fun!

You can find these available at select Joffrey’s Coffee locations around Disney World, including at Animal Kingdom!

Animal Kingdom Construction Updates

Restaurantosaurus has been going through some construction lately, and this week the stairs have been uncoveredbut they’re still blocked off to guests.

Stairs are still covered

the front deck is now open and there are some tablesbut the whole area smells strongly of paint.

Over at Rafiki’s Planet Watch, there’s a new seating area! Several colorful tables and chairs have been placed.

Tables and chairs

When we took the Harambe train from Rafiki’s Planet, we noticed some of the houses are being deconstructed. We asked a Cast Member about this, but they didn’t know if they were being torn down permanently or refurbished.

What’s happening here?

This Pin Trading station was moved from the Expedition Everest gift shop exit door to right next to the ride itself, which is still closed for a lengthy refurbishment.

Pins were moved

And some of these Yeti Statues were freshly painted in a coat of bright red! Very colourful.

Fresh paint!
