PHOTO REPORT: Disney’s Animal Kingdom 2/8/20 (Beautiful Views, Simba Popcorn Buckets, and More)

Today, I spent the morning exploring my favorite park at Walt Disney World: Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Right as you get off the tram, you’re greeted with some green scrim, which hides the new covered security screening area.

You can see progress is happening quickly over here, with the structure completed, framed out and covered.

The two areas have been united in the center since our last update. Soon, we’ll start to see decorative elements being added to the structure.

Look at that beauty! Let’s go in and look around.

The weather was absolutely perfect for a day at this beautiful park. Another Disney must-do: you always have to stop and take a picture of the Tree of Life.

We stopped by to check on the cute otters in Otter Grotto. They never disappoint! They were active and running around today, causing their usual shenanigans.

This cutie posed for us behind a tree. I wish I had a treat!

Terra Treats was not serving anything today. No spaghetti and meatball cupcake for us.

The “f” in Africa is still broken; we’re hoping this gets fixed soon.

13 020320 DAK View 1.jpeg?auto=compress%2Cformat&fit=scale&h=750&ixlib=php 1.2

We took some time to stop and just take in the gorgeous views available throughout the entire park. The scenery is so breathtaking.

You’ll see a lot more pictures of the views coming up in this post.

If you’re trying to get your hands on the new (very adorable) Baby Simba Popcorn Bucket, there were plenty available at the popcorn stands today.

Oh look at that, another view! The details throughout this park are always fun to take in.

Even the Coca-Cola logo gets the Disney treatment at this snack stand.

Pausing for a moment of tranquility.

Wildlife is, of course, always present at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. These cuties were chilling on the roof.

22 020320 DAK Pandora Mountains.jpeg?auto=compress%2Cformat&fit=scale&h=750&ixlib=php 1.2

Time for the most beautiful part of Disney’s Animal Kingdom: Pandora – The World of AVATAR.

The details are amazing, we love it!

The colors are just so vibrant over here.

We had to stop and see how Donald’s Dino-Bash was going!

29 020320 DAK Scrooge McDuck Cast.jpeg?auto=compress%2Cformat&fit=scale&h=750&ixlib=php 1.2

Congrats to this lucky Cast Member who just finished earning her ears! You know what that means: she has no need for the “Earning My Ears” ribbon on her name tag anymore. Scrooge McDuck was happy to take it off for her.

30 020320 DAK Scrooge Solo.jpeg?auto=compress%2Cformat&fit=scale&h=750&ixlib=php 1.2

Scrooge did a pose for us, too. We’re glad he took a break from counting his money to stop by.

31 020320 DAK Donald Bash Statue.jpeg?auto=compress%2Cformat&fit=scale&h=750&ixlib=php 1.2

That wraps up our time at Donald’s Dino-Bash. Do you have a go-to stop while you’re partying with Donald? Let us know!

If you’re short a bib, there was one just chilling on this restroom sign today.

27 020320 DAK Lion King Wall.jpeg?auto=compress%2Cformat&fit=scale&h=750&ixlib=php 1.2

Looking to get a cool and trendy photo backdrop for Instagram? This is, in my opinion, one of the most underrated Disney Instagram Walls.

That wraps up our day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom! Do you stop to take in the views while you’re there? What’s your favorite spot in the park? Let us know!

  1. Hello this is Leo Harry. Animal rights is a completely different thing. Animal rights means not eating animals, not using any kind of animal product even if it could be harvested without excessive harm.
