Kilimanjaro Safaris is pretty busy right now, maybe we’ll just wander around.

Right around the corner, we got some great animal viewing without the wait. There were a couple gorillas out and about.

After checking on the gorillas, we decided to explore Harambe Village a little bit more.

One of the best views of the Tree of Life is in Asia near the Bollywood Beats stage. It’s a great place to take photos and rest, and the details are amazing.

Primeval Whirl is still down, but there are tape markings on the ground to entertain guests. That should make them forget the ride is closed, right?

Club 33 construction seems to be well underway. It looks like space is being cleared out quickly.

Over in Pandora, Windtraders has received several new themed displays that look like they will help with guest flow in the store. They fit in a lot better than some of the clunky, oversized displays in the store.

These Navi hair clips and headbands are pretty interesting souvenirs from your trip to Pandora.

We came across a brand new limited release MagicBand in the Dino Institute. It’s $29.99 and exclusive to annual passholders. The Mickey and Cinderella Castle design is nice, but the purple color is an odd choice.

Over at Discover Trading Company, we found a new friendship necklace set with the “You’re My Hero” cookie medal from Wreck it Ralph for $19.99.

The Lion King popcorn bucket has arrived around the park for $14.99. The front of the bucket has the lion face, and the back has the sun design. There is also a Lion King souvenir cup, but it has not released in the parks yet.

That’s about it for today. Thanks for following us around Disney’s Animal Kingdom today. Stay tuned for more updates from!
