Animal Kingdom Update: Walls Slowly Taking Over...
Hello everyone, and welcome to this latest Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park update. We usually post photo-reports in multiple parts, but we thought that one single post was more than enough for this one, as we "only" have about 40 pictures to share. Why so few? Because, while there's definitely a lot going on in this park, everything is currently... well, behind walls. That's all we can see at the moment, unfortunately. That being said, let's take a look around together and see what's new:
First of all, even before entering the park, Guests can spot the cranes being used for the new AVATAR land:
Getting to the park itself:
Walls are now completely surrounding the Disney Outfitters shop. It is getting an expansion:
It's a long, long set of walls:
The nearby Tip Board is also behind walls, and will be removed soon:
The Tree of Life:
That's all that we can currently see of the new AVATAR-themed land from inside the park:
More work is being done around Discovery Island. A section near the Flame Tree Barbecue is walled-off::
A new Joffrey's coffee kiosk is being built:
Work is also being done around a small area right in front of the gateway to Africa:
The new Harambe Theater District is really a fine themed area:
The Festival of the Lion King show (and theater) never looked this good:
The future pathway leading to the World of Pandora:
Above the walls:
More photos taken around Harambe:
Work on the rumored new Harambe shopping area continues:
A couple more shots of the Tree of Life. What an amazing structure:
New (temporary?) FastPass+ kiosk:
Nothing to report from the Discovery River:
And, yes, that's all for now. Before concluding, remember to like us on our official Facebook page and follow us on Twitter for live updates from the parks. Thank you again for your support, and see you real soon.
