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

Welcome to our newest photo-report, Orlando Theme Park News Readers!
Today we are going to take a look around Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park to see what is happening around this beautifully-landscaped park. As always, we will focus primarily on the new Festival of the Lion King theater, but we will also take a general look around the rest of the park, especially since now it is becoming increasingly difficult getting a good look at it due to the new construction walls. Now, let's start:

NOTE: These photos were taken using our new camera, which we used for the very first time while visiting Animal Kingdom. Please, note that the photos were taken in the LOWEST possible resolution (VGA) and using the easiest and most basic features. We would love for you to give us some feedback in regards to the look of our photos, but keep in mind that there are a lot of improvements coming in the next few weeks. We just need to learn how to use our new camera. All that being said, we are sure you will be pleased by the final results. Let's now start our virtual tour of the park:

This sign looks great:


  1. Gluten Free and Vegan food? Are you serious, the world is going mad. Where's the Bacon wrapped food wagon.

  2. The cakes here were AMAZING! Great idea - hope they get one in every park!!

  3. Meh? Theme parks are about good old junk food, not rabbit food.

  4. Some myself...have celiacs disease and cannot eat gluten. Disney is absolutely wonderful and so accommodating to my family's's really a god send.

  5. Some of us get tired of eating endless burgers and pizza at theme parks. And eating fatty foods often traps me in the bathroom... and it has many times at WDW! God forbid they give us options.
    That said, the best counter service at AK is still the BBQ. :)

  6. Rabbits are vegetarians. Humans are omnivores. Sounds like there's some overlap there...
