Today Renée was able to head to Disney's Animal Kingdom for their Cast Menu preview as they prepare for their reopening on Saturday.
The park has really gone all out with the precautions and social distancing guidelines to hopefully keep everybody safe. Let's head into the park and see what it looks like!
Hello from Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
Social distancing shouldn’t be an issue here today.
An open trash can and some safety reminders welcome you to Pandora.
Flight of Passage has been walk on all morning.
Social distancing lines are on the ground for the entire queue.
Lots of plexiglass barriers added throughout the queue for Flight of Passage.
You walk through the first preshow right into the second one where your party stands on larger dots rather than the usual numbers.
No wait for Navi River Journey. More social distancing lines and plexiglass.
One of the relaxation stations in Asia at Animal Kingdom.
No wait on Expedition Everest. Similar queue spacing and plexiglass here too.
Characters are appearing from a distance on boats.
Social distancing rules go out the window when afternoon storms roll in.
Current menu at Yak and Yeti. Sad to see the fried green beans didn’t make the cut!
Let’s go get that dino! Everyone has been very respectful of distancing and masks for the most part today.
Dinoland is a ghost town.
Lots of dividers in the queue and on the trucks at Kilimanjaro Safari.
Some more of the socially distant entertainment passing by along the water.
Gotta take advantage of absolutely no one in line at Flight of Passage one more time.
Pretty sure I’ll never see it like this ever again.
Solo ride on Flight of Passage.
This was magical.
Thanks for following along on our preview day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom! I have to say that I felt completely safe, and I was definitely apprehensive going in. It was a little weird with CMs in masks and face shields, and yes, it’s hot, but the crowds were non existent.
Today we've got a great update from Disney's Animal Kingdom as Renée went to check out the awesome and expanded Holiday Offerings at the park.
This looks like a truly fun and unique way to enjoy the holidays.
You can find more information about what's happening at DAK here.

Quick visit to Disney’s Animal Kingdom this afternoon in the rain. As with all parks and resorts all over WDW property, the holiday decorations look great!
Love the addition of the Merry Menagerie this year. The animals are adorable!
Enjoying the live music from the performers too!
Feliz Na’vidad from Pandora.
Ah, Na’vi River Journey - the Smuggler’s Run of Pandora.
Dinoland has more Christmas lights up than it ever has before.
The Tree of Life Awakenings added a wintery touch to their showings, and it’s lovely and a perfect way to end the evening at DAK.
Time for a quick update from Walt Disney World where some great Halloween merchandise is now available. Just in time for the first Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party that is this week. Yes, this week.
Written by Renée Girard
With the first a Halloween party just a few days away (!!), all of the merchandise is beginning to appear in stores today.
I’m so excited for two and a half months of Halloween!
Does anyone care that this opened today?
Some of the Farewell IllumiNations merchandise is already on sale. $10 for the cup? Yes please!
