Major construction work starts at Disney's Animal Kingdom next month

May 15th 2014 at 11:07

As part of Animal Kingdom's largest ever expansion project, construction work has already been taking place in small areas of the park, however from as the construction ramps up, it will impact some areas of the park.

So, here's what's happening:

  • From mid-may to July, 2014 the Cotton-Top Tamarins is being built in the Creature Comforts area.
  • From June to early July, 2014 the Disney Outfitters store will be expanded. Whilst this is being done the Tip Board will be hidden behind construction walls.
  • From mid-June to the end of September, 2014 there will be a new kiosk area built outside of the Flame Tree Barbecue, and it'll primarily serve coffees, teas and cold drinks.

This is of course in addition to works that have already started, such as the closure of Camp Minnie-Mickey.
