Thirsty River Bar and Trek Snacks is set to open on December 12 2015 at Disney's Animal Kingdom.


Located in the former FASTPASS distribution area at Expedition Everest, Thirsty River Bar and Trek Snacks will offer snacks, beverages and alcoholic drinks.

Although the area has been expanded with new construction, there won't be seating, and food and drink will be offered as a grab-and-go service.

The attention to detail for AK is on another level.

Bahn mi and sushi!! Another place I can't wait to try! And right next to my beloved Everest! May be able to break my standing record of 12 rides in a row! ;)

What a great snack location. I'm really pleasantly surprised by the menu and drink offerings. As is the case with Fantasmic!, I think I'll have to grab a cold beverage before watching the 'Rivers of Light' show. :-)

I was on iPhone this morning- and clearly my eyes are dying. Its def. weathered. For some reason it looked sparkling new to me. Disregard my comment. Move along, move along. :)

IMHO, much better then Diagon Alley.

I love these forums, where else can you have a multi-page conversation about how weathered signs are? :happy:

It's appropriately weathered, IMO. There are even faux rust/water stains around the edges and dripping down the front of it in some places. It looks like an appropriate painted metal sign that a business like that would use.

It definitely is aged a bit, just look at it again. Plus, not every business in Anandapur is old and failing. This could be a new enterprise, set up to take advantage of business from the nearby Himalayan Escapes tours of the Forbidden Mountain. Remember, Anandapur and Harambe are both active, living communities. They evolve over time, and therefore have varying degrees of renewal and decay.

Because it's more exciting to talk about than a Fastpass location turned into a bar. People go off-topic all the time and no one gets hurt. You've been around long enough to know that.

With all the work going on at DAK between 2014-2017, I'll be okay with WDW focusing on the other parks with that money. For our family, DAK has been a park where we spend many hours each trip. We slow down at this park to see and do absolutely everything. With all the new additions, it'll be no problem to spend 2 full days there each time we visit. Yep, spend that $3.2 billion where it is much more needed :)

So, yeah. It was off topic. As fun as it is to read creative ideas, it's a letdown each time you go to a thread you're interested in and there's nothing truly relevant to the subject matter. That's why I said that.
