Foodie Guide to Lion King Treats at Animal Kingdom Park

Disney is introducing new treats this summer with offerings that celebrate characters and moments from Disney’s The Lion King.

All of the items listed below begin on May 24, 2019 and will run through the end of summer. From latte art and ice cream sandwiches to special cones and more, there are enough treats here to have a feast fit for a (lion) king.

My personal favorite - Lion King latte art!
