We’re back with news from Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
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.
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!
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.
Check out our review of the Yeti Sundae here!

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.
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.
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.
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.
And some of these Yeti Statues were freshly painted in a coat of bright red! Very colourful.
Let’s go shopping!
