Disney's Animal Kingdom News Round-Up for April 8, 2015: Everest, Hyenas and More

Happy Birthday Expedition Everest:  Yesterday was the 9th birthday for Expedition Everest. (And you will not get any snarky Disco Yeti jokes out of me here!) There really isn’t any new here, just an excuse for me to post of picture of best ride exterior in the history of theme park attractions…

Construction to Begin on Hyena Habitat: In case you missed our post from Monday, Disney has filed paperwork to begin construction on what they are calling the "AK Hyena Compound Rockwork”. Click here to read more.

Celebrate Africa Returns to AKL: According to, the Celebrate Africa event is set to return to the Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Jambo House. This semi-regular event offers guests the chance to “have their faces painted, decorate animal-shaped sugar cookies, and learn interesting facts about the many activities that are a part of the African culture.” If you are at AKIL, be sure to check it out.

Did You Take the Dinosaur Quiz?: I can only imagine the folks at the Disney Parks Blog were struggling for content yesterday, because the posted a quiz about the Dinosaur ride. The quiz is only five questions, but at least it is on a subject we love! See how well you do.
