Refurbishment continues at Island Mercantile at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, as cash registers are being relocated throughout the store.
Island Mercantile Refurbishment
The circular registers in the elephant room have been removed, with only the octagonal shape on the ground to show where it once was.
Now, guests are directed to go to a new wall of registers toward the back instead.
This register wall is bee-themed, and includes various imagery of bees, owls, tree branches, and honeycomb.
Over in the camel room, however, a giant black tarp covers up the circular area of registers.
The tarp has various rolling carts of apparel parked around it, likely to discourage guests from getting too close. A Mobile Checkout sign is also on display, showing how guests can use the My Disney Experience app to check out without having to wait in line.
On the opposite side, a Cast Member was on standby to direct guests away from the former register area.
A Mobile Checkout sign is present on this side of the registers as well.
The beaver registers elsewhere in the store appear to be safe for now, though they are presumably next to get removed.
These whimsical registers have “logs” on all sides that look as though they’ve been chewed on by a beaver or two.
