Hakuna Matata Lion King fans because there are some amazing Lion King themed treats and more coming to Animal Kingdom and beyond as we near the debut of The Lion King live action film that is set to hit theaters on July 18, 2019.
Tamu Tamu is getting an adorable ice cream sandwich that consists of vanilla soft serve sandwiched between two delicious looking chocolate chip cookies. An image of adult Simba is on the top with chocolate frosting fanning his face like a lion’s mane. It even comes complete with a chocolate tail! Tamu Tamu is located just over the bridge entering Harambe Village on the right hand side.
Several other treats are also available at Tamu Tamu including a new Dole Whip treat. Tamu Tamu is currently the location where guests can enjoy the popular pineapple treat and also get it with coconut rum if they choose. The new limited edition Dole Whip option is Simba’s Sunset Dole Whip. This is a traditional Dole Whip topped with a watermelon and cherry flavored syrup.
I’m going to be completely honest with you, I think they could have done better than a syrup. How amazing would be it be to do a Dole Whip with a strawberry puree or a guava and strawberry puree. Just personal opinion and also not having tried it, I would have preferred to see a puree over a fake syrup.
Staying at Tamu Tamu, adults can purchase the King’s Cooler, a Pineapple Dole Whip served with rum and topped with a watermelon and coconut syrup.
The Asante Slush which looks like a sunset in a glass! Located at the shave ice cart in Harambe Village, this shaved ice is topped with a watermelon and passion-fruit mango syrup.
Across from Tamu Tamu at Dawa Lounge, guests will be able to imbibe in the Serengeti Sangria, a gorgeous deep purple in color, this red sangria is fruity and refreshing for summer.
The Bugs N Grub Waffle Cone is available at Anandapur and Trilo Bites and is a green waffle cone filled with chocolate soft serve, rolled in “dirt also known as cookie crumbles and complete with gummy worms and a cute little chocolate beetle.
A Lion King themed novelty sipper cup and limited edition popcorn bucket are also descending on Animal Kingdom while supplies last and will hit the park later this summer.
Joffrey’s Coffee and Tea will debut the “Lion King Latte” for a limited time. This drink can be served hot or iced and is a white chocolate and coconut latte made with Joffrey’s Flavors of Africa Artisan Roast.
Pizzafari will highlight a special Simba cupcake. This vanilla cupcake is filled with a chocolate mousse and a white chocolate piece on top featuring a young Simba. The icing is vibrant yellow and orange and represents Simba’s mane.
Also coming to Animal Kingdom is the Circle of Flavors: Harambe at Night Dining Experience. Be sure to check out our blog post highlighting this special event.
