Imagine the colors, scents and boundless activity of a village marketplace in Africa. That sensory scene is coming to DisneyÕs Animal Kingdom with a spring 2015 opening planned for Africa Marketplace Ð a new shopping and dining option for park-goers in Harambe, the village anchoring the Africa section of the park.ÊOne highlight of the new space will be Harambe Marketplace, a new quick-service food and beverage location offering street-inspired dishes from walk-up windows. Guests will find plenty of shady places to relax and eat. For their convenience, the new space also will open up a new pathway from Africa to Bradley Falls and the Asia section of the park.ÊTogether with the new Harambe Theatre housing ÒThe Festival of the Lion King,Ó the addition of Africa Marketplace will double the size of the original Harambe Village. Paired with previously-announced projects throughout the park, DisneyÕs Animal Kingdom is undergoing the largest expansion in its history. (Disney)
