Throughout 2015 the snack kiosks at Disney's Animal Kingdom have been undergoing a makeover as part of the updates underway throughout the park.

The kiosks have all received a new look, featuring earthy tones instead of the bright pastel colors of the past. The updates were concluded late in December 2015 with the introduction of all new names and updates to the menus.

Here is a rundown of the new locations.

also wanted to add that EPCOT is my wow park visually for some reason...if it can be whole again....

matt9112Jan 21, 2016

keep in mind EPCOTs numbers are inflated to the moon with festivals. in its current shape i dont think it holds a candle even attendance wise if you subtract all dates when a "major festival" is going on...we can leave Christmas in because MK gets a buff there too. but food and wine,flower, ect

Truly (arguably) the most beautiful stateside Disney parks! It surprises me that this park's attendance numbers are closer to Hollywood Studios and nearly a million guests below EPCOT... well, hopefully with the new major lands at AK and HS, it will push EPCOT to last and they will finally give that park some much needed attention...

Just a reminder of how beautifully designed those kiosks at AK are. Especially love Caravan Road. And these new colors are stunning. Very mature choices

The new food sounds AWESOME. I am definitely going to try the lobster mac and cheese. Teriyaki beef sliders and edimame sounds good too!

Animal Kingdom does seem to be the best park for getting savoury items that are snack credits

Nice to see anything at the parks "freshening up", but I will say I'm glad that even though they're toning down some of the bright colors, the stands are still colorful. Just more subdued. I still am not completely on board with Discovery Island going that route.

Just a quick question, and nothing too major. I was looking at the Smiling Crocodile full menu and didn't see the specified "Smokey Cheddar Grits" or the chicken drumsticks. Just curious!

This is certainly the case for DAK, but Epcot is still falling badly behind. Studios is hopefully turning a corner.

Great update!! Would totally rather eat at Eight Spoon than Beastly kiosk! Updated looks are great, and the newer menus in the last year may require a whole week to get through!

For those that disagree with me that Disney is trying to improve the parks, this shows that they are putting money into the little details. These details are what made Disney great and shows that Disney has returned to that Standard at Walt Disney World.

Yeah DAK just keeps getting better and better. :) Great to see.
