Disney’s Animal Kingdom 25th Anniversary Merch is Here!

On April 22nd, 1998, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park opened at Walt Disney World. This year is Animal Kingdoms’ 25th Anniversary, and they are doing so much to celebrate this milestone like new character meet and greets, new flotillas, and of course, merchandise. In this article, we will look at all the merch that has been released for this exciting celebration.

Anniversary Pins

Several anniversary pins represent different aspects of the park. They have a DINOSAUR pin, a Kilimanjaro Safari one, a pin showcasing Kevin from UP! and more. Here’s a look at those pins.

Disney also released a mystery pin set that costs $24.99.


Now let’s take a look at some of the clothing that was released for this anniversary.

<em>Black Front Tie Shirt $4499<em>

This front tie shirt is definitely something I would wear, and I am so tempted to buy it. I adore the design and I love the splash of color.

Tank Top $3999
<em>Khaki Short Sleeve Button up $5999<em>
<em>Annual Passholder T shirt $3999<em>
<em>More Adventure is Out There Spirit Jersey $7999<em>
Youth t shirt $2699


The accessories for this anniversary are so unique. There’s a brown Loungefly Bag with the 25th Anniversary logo on the top, and the rest resembles the Tree of Life, and I think I need it.

25th Anniversary Loungefly Mini Backpack $88
25th Anniversary Keychain $1199
25th Anniversary Ornament $1999
25th Anniversary Light up Box $4499
25th Anniversary Tumbler $2999

I had low expectations coming into this because previous anniversary merchandise, I’m looking at you 50th Anniversary, had me a tad disappointed. When I saw all their merchandise, I was pleasantly surprised. All of this merch perfectly encapsulates Animal Kingdom and its quirkiness. If I had to pick my favorite piece of the collection, it would be between the Loungefly Bag and the Limited Edition Pins. What about you? What item released is your favorite?
