Now that the Spring Break crowds are dwindling down, Harmabe Market in the Africa section of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park will be reducing its hours and stopping operations Monday through Wednesday.

Harambe Market is currently operating every day from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., but that will end on April 4.  Beginning on April 5, the Market will only be available to Guests from Thursday through Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

While Guests will only be able to visit Harmabe Market on Thursdays through Sundays beginning next week, there are a variety of other mouthwatering dining locations.
