Animal Kingdom Update: New Pathway in Asia (PART 1)

Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is looking a lot like Downtown Disney at the moment. Guests will find temporary construction walls in almost every single themed land, as the park is in the middle of its biggest expansion ever.
While this could be seen as a negative thing by certain Guests, we should all try to look toward the future. Just imagine how beautiful the park will be once all the new areas and offerings will officially open to the public! Let's walk around...

Our first stop will be the future AVATAR Land:

The massive showbuilding of the land's immersive simulator is clearly visible from the parking lot:

Entering the park:

Walls are still up on both sides Discovery Island's entrance:

A new pole has been installed near the Disney Outfitters shop:

The expanded park hub:

New themed speakers were recently installed:

The new lights look great as well:

The relocated perch used during Winged Encounters - Kingdom Takes Flight:

Truly a majestic park icon:

One of the animal exhibits located nearby is still empty:

Work continues around the Flame Tree Barbecue area:

Nearby kiosks:

The construction walls around Discovery island now feature some great posters advertising many of the rides, attractions, shows, and exhibits located across the park. Take a look at just a few of them:

Work also continues in the west side of the Discovery Island:

A new restaurant is being built behind the existing Pizzafari:


  1. I realy love the new pole! Will there be pole dancing in the future?

  2. Not here but maybe at EPCOT if the open a new Poland pavilion.

  3. With AK having the fewest special events of all the parks, I find myself having to be careful when bringing groups to the event venues. Things look different, especially at night, with the walls covering up some of the reference points I used in the past. Now I pre-walk the route so that I don't make a wrong turn. That would be very embarrassing.
    It will all be worth it and AK will no longer be a half day park once everything is completed.
