What’s New in Animal Kingdom: Loads of Simba and 5th Anniversary Pandora Merch.

Let’s see what’s happening in Disney’s Animal Kingdom!

Tree of Life

As we near the 5-year anniversary of Pandora – The World of Avatar on May 27th, we’re seeing new Pandora merchandise hit the parks! And while we expected to see mostly Pandora merchandise hit the park, instead we mostly saw…Simba?! That’s right, Disney seems to be stuck in 1994 (when Lion King was released, of course), as the park was full of Simba merch. Like, seriously…Simba is everywhere. Of course, we saw other updates in the park too, like new food offerings and items unrelated to Lion Kingso let’s see what’s new in Animal Kingdom!
