Tree of Life

Animal Kingdom is reopening with most of its iconic and beloved attractions. It will be nice to ride a banshee through Pandora again, but we’re taking a look at the entertainment and shopping that will be open, too! With modified character experiences and new health measures, let’s see the FULL LIST of reopening entertainment and shopping in Animal Kingdom!

Let’s start by taking a look at entertainment. After all, we gotta know if we’ll be seeing Safari Mickey or hearing those awesome Animal Kingdom drummers.

Reopening Entertainment

As we learned earlier this morning, characters will be cruising the waterways of Animal Kingdom. Those cruises will include the following:

  • Discovery River Character Cruise
  • Discovery Island Drummers
  • Donald’s Dino Boat Bash!
  • Mickey & Friends Flotilla

Donald’s Dino Boat Bash! sure sounds like a party we’d want to be invited to. While you’re waiting for the next cruise of characters to pass by, you can step into one of these reopening Animal Kingdom shops.

Reopening Shopping

  • Africa Hub Cart
  • African Heritage Wood Carving
  • Baby Care
  • Chester and Hester’s Dinosaur Treasures
  • Discovery Trading Company
  • Garden Gate Gifts & Strollers
  • Kilimanjaro Safari Cart
  • Mandala Gifts
  • Mombasa Marketplace
  • Out Of The Wild
  • Serka Zong Bazaar
  • The Dino Institute Shop
  • Windtraders

We’re actually pretty excited about those character cruises. We might not be able to give Donald a hug, but seeing him live it up on Discovery River will be pretty fun, too. There’s a lot of BIG news coming out about the theme parks today, so keep an eye on DFB for all of the updates!
