What’s New at Disney’s Animal Kingdom: Bunny Butt Treats, Boy Band Shirts, and a Favorite Snack Returns!

Know what’s so fun about Disney World? No, we’re not talking about Flight of Passage, or eating a Mickey Bar, or saying “hello” to Mickey (though those are VERY fun, too!). One of our favorite parts of going to Disney World is that no two visits are ever the same! Between all the new treats and merchandise released on a daily basis, plus all the fun surprises we happen to find, tHere’s always something new and exciting just waiting to be discovered.

You never know who you might see in Animal Kingdom!

Speaking of new things, we visited Disney’s Animal Kingdom to check out what was new. Let’s take a look!

Animal Kingdom Food Updates

It’s been a LONG time since Frozen bananas Have been readily available in all four Disney parks. For a while, our beloved frozen fruit treat was completely gone from the menus, but back in November, they finally came back to the Magic Kingdom (with a NEW supplier!).

They’re BACK!

Now, we’re happy to report that Frozen Bananas are available once again at ALL snack carts in Disney’s Animal Kingdom! Oh, how we’ve missed you — we were going BANANAS waiting for them to return! 😉
