Timon Sipper – $19.20
The Timon sipper is available at Trek Snacks, Cornivores, The Feeding Ground, and select ice cream carts throughout Disney’s Animal Kingdom. We picked ours up at the cart near Creature Comforts (Starbucks).
The straw of the sipper pops up from the top of Timon’s head.
The red and orange strap reads “Disney’s Animal Kingdom 25th anniversary” and “Hakuna Matata.” It’s the same strap included with the Pumbaa popcorn bucket.
This Pumbaa popcorn bucket is still available for $20.69 at Trek Snacks and popcorn carts throughout the park while supplies last.
Will you be bringing home both of “The Lion King” duo? Let us know in the comments.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom
Disney’s Animal Kingdom opened on Earth Day, April 22, 1998. To celebrate the park’s 25th anniversary, Animal Kingdom had special food items, rare character meet and greets, and a merchandise collection. There was also a special 25th anniversary ceremony. Watch our video below.
The Walt Disney World Ambassadors page posted a commemoration on Instagram for the 123 cast members at Disney’s Animal Kingdom who’ve been around to make magic moments and watch the park grow and transform over all 25 years.
Cast members dug up a time capsule buried beneath Disney’s Animal Kingdom 25 years ago. Upon opening this historic relic for the park’s anniversary celebration, various interesting opening day items, trinkets, and technologies were discovered. Disney also shared a letter from the opening team to today’s cast.
A permanent Moana meet and greet opened on April 22 at Character Landing on Discovery Island.
