Construction continues on the new security structure outside of the park. We’re super excited for an easier arrival experience.

Three new phone cases greeted us featuring the beloved park icon, the Tree of Life. They retail for $29.99 and can be found at Riverside Depot.

Refurbishment continues on Kali River Rapids. Too bad, we could have used a quick cool-down!

A new cookie in honor Valentine’s Day has roared into the park. Just look at how cute it is!

Cookies aren’t the only thing on our mind with love in the air. This delicious strawberry treat is available at several locations around the park.

There was minor construction going on in Harambe Market to extend the awnings and add more shade for guests.

Thankfully, it wasn’t too much in the way of hungry guests waiting to eat at the Market.

While strolling through Pandora: The World of AVATAR we noticed this beautiful artwork at Windtraders. We love all the recognizable features of the land in this fun 3-D acrylic piece.

It looks like improvements are being made all over, and Pandora is no exception. Crowd barricades blocked off this section of path, protecting what seemed to be a refreshed glow-in-the-dark walkway section.

We could smell the paint, as well as see a noticeable color difference between the blocked off section and the open walkway.  There is even orange paint among the familiar green and white now!

We can’t wait to return to beautiful Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Till next time, Sivako! Rise to the challenge.
