PHOTO REPORT: Disney’s Animal Kingdom 11/6/19 (Discovery Island Christmas Decorations, DIY Gingerbread Cookies, Mickey Christmas Lights, and More)

Good morning from a very crowded Animal Kingdom! We dealt with the crowds and the heat today to see what the jungle had to throw our way.

Over at Island Mercantile, we spotted the beginnings of Christmas with these festive little critters lining the roof.

We can see what seems to be a type of lantern in the shapes of squirrels, owls, doves, wolves and reindeer.

Across the road, Riverside Depot was also given the animal lantern treatment. These decorations are just the beginning of what’s to come to Discovery Island for the parks highly anticipated Christmas offerings.

Flame tree barbecue

*sniff* I love the smell of barbecue in the morning. Maybe later we can get a Hot Link Smokehouse Sausage.

Lion Paw Cookie – $3.50

Lion paw cookie

We stumbled upon the new Lion Paw cookie at the snack cart opposite Trilo-Bites. This Christmas colored lions paw isn’t available at all carts yet, as most are still selling the orange ones from Halloween. So, if you happen to get your paws on these paws, you’re one lucky cub.

Slowly, this Dino is getting its full body covered in lights. Maybe by next week, the back legs will be done.

Mickey Christmas Lights – $34.99

It’s that time of year again. The time of year where your dad gets frustrated with tangled Christmas lights! Why don’t you be a nice kid and buy him a brand new box of these Mickey-shaped ones?

There’s so much talent everywhere you turn in Walt Disney World.

Gingerbread Cookie

You can decorate your own Mickey Gingerbread Cookie over at Discovery Trading Company. The kit includes two Mickey Mouse shaped gingerbread cookies, red and white icing, and chocolate chips! You can also see by the ingredients they are egg and dairy free, yay!

I hear a Yeti lives up in that mountain, among a sea of hair ties!
