Disney World continues to increase its offerings for weekend visitors. We at Inside the Magic can confirm that the Harambe Market in Disney’s Animal Kingdom will reopen this weekend starting Saturday, November 14, and will continue to be open during the weekends going forward.
The new schedule can be found on the Walt Disney World Website.
While the title indicates that it is temporarily unavailable, the hours for each day go from “no times available” on weekdays to set hours on the weekends. For example, on Saturday, November 14, Harambe Market will be open from 10 am – 3 pm.
The Harambe Market is an open-air quick-service food option in the Africa area of the park. Disney describes the experience on its website as the following:
Constructed around an old colonial-era train depot and lorded over by an iconic water tower, this active marketplace showcases distinct personalities and menu—created using produce and raw goods delivered daily by the local locomotive.
Here, the citizens of Harambe welcome travelers from all around the world, encouraging Guests of every age to tantalize their senses by enjoying a ribs and chicken bowl, a Harambe salad with chicken, a hot link bowl with plant-based sausage and a scrumptious Simba cupcake with an adorable edible image of The Lion King cub.
Mobile Ordering should be available.
This news comes as Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park begins its own holiday celebrations with the expectation of holiday crowds.
This new schedule for the Harambe Market aligns with Disney World’s current plan to expand weekend operations of its theme parks. We have reported that the mega-resort has elected to extend its theme park hours for select days in November, including this upcoming weekend. Animal Kingdom’s operational hours will be extended to 7 am – 7 pm.
