We also know that character meet and greets, fireworks, and traditional entertainment offerings won’t be available right away when the parks reopen. However, we have a better idea of the modified character experiences that will be available at Animal Kingdom!

Disney’s website had a MASSIVE update today, listing all of the attractions, shops, and entertainment that will be available upon reopening! Let’s first take a look at all of the spots we can get our shopping fix at Animal Kingdom:

  • 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

Discovery Trading Company

And if you’re looking for a little entertainment, here is what WILL be available. According to Disney, “Character Cruises throughout the day, with Guest-favorite Disney friends appearing in boats around Discovery River” These include the following:

  • Discovery River Character Cruise
  • Discovery Island Drummers
  • Donald’s Dino Boat Bash!

These new “Character Cruises” sound super adorable! We did notice that as of right now, Finding Nemo: The Musical does not seem to appear as available upon reopening, as well as UP! A Great Bird Adventure. Additionally, Festival of the Lion King has been removed from Disney’s original list of opening attractions.
