Merchandise Takes the Spotlight at Disney's Animal Kingdom's Anniversary Celebration

Let’s look back at yesterday’s celebration of Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s 15th Anniversary with a few photos from the park.  It was a great event for all who attended, but the star of the show was apparently the merchandise sold at the Creature Comforts shop!

The photo below shows the table of special items offered exclusively at this location in the park.  (Thank you Steve for the photo!)

But purchasing these items seems to have come at a cost.  Take a look at the photo below.  This is the line to purchase these items.  At one point it was a three-hour line that stretched all the way back to the Dawa Bar!  (Photo by Destination in Florida, the official travel company of Jambo Everyone.  Please book your next trip through them and they help us in our Conservation Effort!)

I am not sure if Disney was expecting this, but I truly hope they weren’t.  In hindsight, they should have made these items available at more than one location to help ease the wait.  There is no bigger DAK nut than me, but there is no way I would wait on a three-hour line to buy souvenirs!
