Celebrate Your Wild Side at Disney’s Harambe Nights

 Harambe Nights Street Party

"Hakuna matata, no worries" is the motto of the exciting after-park event at Disney's Animal Kingdom - Harambe Nights. Saturday nights, now through August 9, 2014, Harambe Village transforms into a street celebration in honor of the 20th anniversary of Disney's animated feature, The Lion King.

So let's join the pride and enjoy an evening of being at the top of the food chain as we celebrate Simba and all of his friends. Our Visit Orlando adventurers were able to experience this party and have listed our tips not to be missed.

Our Top of the Food Chain Tips:

Harambe Nights Street Party 2

  • Disney's Animal Kingdom is an entirely new experience at night. Traditionally, it has been Walt Disney World's only daytime theme park and you don't want to miss your chance to enjoy the park after dark.
Harambe Nights Desserts
    • The African flavors really pop in the wide range of food that is offered. The food is spread out to encourage exploration of the entire Harambe Village area.

    Harambe Nights Peri BBQ Pork and Vegetarian Eggplant

    • Our favorite dish was the Fork Tender Peri BBQ Pork and Vegetarian Eggplant with Tikka Masala Curry. Yum!
    Harambe Nights Welcome Reception
    • The party caters to some serious adult fun with a variety of imaginative dishes and tasty beverages, but it's also a great event for the entire family.
    Harambe Nights Mickey and Minnie
    • Enjoy some one-on-one time with your favorite Disney characters as they mix and mingle donning their African evening wear.
    Lion King: Concert in the Wild at Harambe Nights
    • To celebrate original release of The Lion King, the "residents" of Harambe Village perform an hour long tribute to the classic film. A live choir and graceful dancers are joined by a 25 piece orgestra and a celebrity narrator in this unforgettable performance.
    Lion King: Concert in the Wild at Harambe Nights 2
    • If the live performance is your key reason for attending, we would suggest upgrading your ticket to the premium seating for an extra $15 per ticket. Some of the general seating areas along the sides have limited viewing of the stage. Update: Premium seating is sold out for all events.
