Circle of Flavors: Harambe at Night Food Offerings Announced

A few months ago, we shared information about an all-new dining experience known as Circle of Flavors: Harambe at Night.

Harambe Market

This new add-on experience celebrates The Lion King and African culture.

Not only will there be fun entertainment and delicious food, but Disney has also announced an all-new Kilimanjaro Safari VR experience, which will take place at Rafiki’s Planet Watch. This 360-degree safari experience will allow you to get face-to-face with the hosts of the event, the African lions.


Harambe Train Station Offerings

Things kick off at the Harambe Train Station, where you will get to dine on meat pies, Durban chips and dip and more.

There will be fruit, cheese, and caramel-dipped apples for the little ones. And the adults will have the opportunity to sip on a sparking South African wine, which is a blend of passion fruit, orange, and guava juices.

During the welcome reception, you will receive a boarding pass. This pass will allow you to hop on the train to Rafiki’s Planet Watch to enjoy not only the VR experience, but a few delectable treats as well. Here you’ll find spiced crisp plantains, South African oat and coconut bars, Sundowner Safari Mix, and more. On top of this, you will find yummy kiddo options like seasonal fruit and Trail Mix Bites. There will be a few boozy options for the adults here, too, like the Chief’s Shandy (Tusker beer blended with lemonade), and Wanjohi’s Dawa, a refreshing blend of tequila, pineapple, mango, and Ancho chile.

Harambe Market Offerings

You’ll eventually head back to your final destination: Harambe Market. There you will have a delicious dinner while listening to delightful African musicians. There will also be a dance party and a bit of storytelling!

What does the menu include, you ask? Well, there will be an “array of hearty dishes and yummy desserts inspired by the five featured African animals.” And around the marketplace, there will be stations representing these animals along with a selection of different offerings in the courtyard. Long story short — there will be LOTS of food.


At each station, you will get to learn a bit about that particular animal, which we think is pretty cool. Also, if your little ones are interested, there will be an opportunity for them to choose a charm of their favorite of the five animals. And they’ll get to create their own jewelry piece while learning more about that animal.

  1. We did Harambe Nights a few years ago, and was easily one of my favorite hard ticket events at WDW. When I saw this one, I couldn’t wait to sign on! Now that I see all that is being offered, I’m very excited that we will be going in September
