Animal Kingdom Update: New Starbucks Opens (PART 1)

One of the most amazing Disney theme parks ever created keeps getting better.
While Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is definitely underbuilt in terms of attractions, its theming is nothing short of superb, and the new themed areas, stores, and food & beverage locations that are being constructed in the park continue to follow the same template that was applied to all the themed areas that opened back in 1998. Let's take a look around to see what is new:

Welcome to Animal Kingdom:

The expansion of the Disney Outfitter store continues:

The store on the other side of the island is also being expanded:

  1. Wow, I forgot how insane their food prices are. Especially after paying the ~$81-$112 admission and $17/day parking fee.

  2. ^^^That's why the dining plan is great!
