New DVC resort: Ordinarily, I wouldn't comment on such a thing, but this nature inspired. Disney said the resort will be "nature inspired." There will be 900 rooms or so. The resort will be located between the Wilderness Lodge and Fort Wilderness. There will also be varied room types.

Drinkwallah: Additional seating is being added to this establishment. It appears an additional structure is going near the water. Its a great place to sit, but in the past there have been only a few tables and seats. Its tremendously themed, so this is a good thing.

New Food items: I know, food changes are common, but here are some. At breakfast, you can find french toast sticks at Pongu Pongu. I guess the Na'vi are french? Halloween popcorn buckets are available in Harambe. So naturally, the candy store has Halloween cupcakes. The Starbucks now has yogurt parfaits, not a bad breakfast option.

In creating Pandora, the imagineers have given us another example of that peacefulness they are so good at creating with this path that leads from the theater district of Harambe - where the lion king show plays - to Pandora near the gift shop and Sa'tuli Canteen.
In the middle of the day, there is often no one using this area, and it is very pretty walk along the Discovery River.
At certain times, there is even entertainment there. We walked the path around lunch time and found a duo performing creating even more ambiance.
It is places like this that really put the Animal Kingdom ahead of all other parks in my mind. Yes, the attractions are great. The zoological exhibits are top notch. But it is places like this where the park shines.

New Dining Package: A new dining package is here for Festival of the Lion King. The package includes a meal at Tiffins and special VIP viewing of the show. The meal includes an appetizer, entree, dessert and drink, which includes beer and wine. Tier 1 package also includes a special safari tour with a personal tour guide. That costs $99 for an adult and only $49 for kids under 12. Tier 2 excludes the safari and is $74 and $29. Between this and Rivers of Light dining package I am left wondering if Tiffins isn't doing all that well. The packages start August 13th.
No more straws: Disney is developing plans to eliminate some plastics that are not biodegradable. By summer 2019, Disney plans to remove all single use plastic straws and plastic stirrers. Disney uses 175 million straws and 13 million stirrers annually. The hotels and cruise ships are also hoping to eliminate 80% of in room plastics, as well.

New Lounge: Disney has opened a new lounge in Dinoland. Its taking over the garage section of Restaurantosaurus starting at 5 pm. They've added lanterns and secluded the lounge from the rather noisy areas of the place. There is outdoor seating, as well. The menu is quite limited with three non-alcoholic, four alcoholic drinks and 2 small plates, buffalo chicken dip and mixed nuts. Maybe if this place is well received they will expand the menu but for now it seems like a nice place to get out of the heat for a bit.
New option at Tiffins: One of our favorite places is, of course, Tiffins. They have started a new Prix-Fixe option at lunch. You can select an appetizer and entree or an entree and dessert. The apps include the apple walnut salad and falafel. The entrees you can select include the Wagyu Beef Tagine or roasted chicken. Desserts include the chocolate ganache and the guava mousse. The price isn't too bad considering this is a signature restaurant. It is $35 per guest. You can still order off the regular menu, this is just an option, not a replacement. Also, it is from 11 am to 3:30 pm.

Pizzafari Family Style: the very mediocre pizza place on Discovery Island is adding a family style dinner. Two rooms will be made available for a family style meal instead of seating for the counter service. It starts on July 31 and you will be able to make an ADR. You select once there, 2 appetizers, three entrees and a dessert served family style. Its only available for dinner (5-8pm). Soft drinks are available and you can buy alcoholic drinks. The price is relatively reasonable, at $19.99 for adults and $11.99 for kids. As an aside, the place recently added a shrimp flatbread and cannoli cake.
