Animal Kingdom Update: New Starbucks Opens (PART 3)

Welcome to the third (and final) part of our latest Animal Kingdom photo-report. PART 2 of this update can be found by clicking on this link.
As you have seen in the past two parts of this photo-tour, a lot of work continues to be done around Discovery Island, the new AVATAR area, and Africa. What about Asia and DinoLand U.S.A., though? While the majority of the construction projects are taking place elsewhere, there's definitely something going on there.

A few more photos of the new Harambe Market:

Can you spot the hidden Mickey?:

It's featured on an out-of-place merchandise item:

Entering this area:

Work is being done around the Whac-A-Packycephalosaurus game (we had to spell the entire name of the dinosaur just to be on the safe side... We are sure some of our Readers will understand this joke):

Sure thing:

  1. I got the joke. :P

  2. Did they totally phase out the coleslaw at Flame Tree?? I love coleslaw and baked beams with bbq...not sure about cornbread....

  3. Whoops.... meant beans not beams...sorry!

  4. Lol, Wack-a-##### <== Censorded to not offend, unlike those jerks at that Park on Isla Nublar

  5. Did they intentionally misspell "Pachycephalosaur"?

  6. @Paul "Gibby" Gibson: You got it! ;-)

    @Last Anonymous: We were wondering about the same thing. We knew that the dinosaur's name included an "h" at the beginning. Interesting.

  7. The coleslaw is on the Pulled Pork sandwich, which makes me think you could still request it as a side.
