African-inspired Street Food Arrives at Harambe Market in Disney’s Animal Kingdom

The much-anticipated Harambe Market has finally opened at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. This African-inspired street food marketplace makes it known that food plays the starring role. The Market offers four distinct walk-up windows with 200 + shaded seating.

The Harambe Market theme is built around a Colonial-era train depot design complete with a 1960s water tower. The goal of Disney was to re-create a bustling center of commerce where guests are welcomed from around the world. The little seaside town will allow Disney guests to immerse themselves into an eclectic culture with the ability to venture out to the reserve and observe Africa’s animals.
