There’s a brand new fun and interactive dining adventure coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom starting July 24th. Circle of Flavors: Harambe at Night is a brand new themed family event filled with virtual reality, African inspired food, and animal conservation. This new experience combines the story of “The Lion King” with the need to save these amazing creatures. Guests will get to ride the train to Rafiki’s Planet Watch after a fun reception in Harambe train station. You’ll be up close with some African Lions and a dance party with a couple of friends from “The Lion King” movie. After some amazing food, drinks, and virtual reality safari (only available during this event) you then take the train to Harambe Market and have even more delicious food with a themed dinner.

Once you’ve made your way back to Harambe Market you’ll be greeted with a live African band playing upbeat music and different stations for a delicious meal. Each station represents five African animals and a final station in the courtyard.
