Disney’s Animal Kingdom truly comes alive at night. This summer guests have a chance to experience a different side of this animal-inspired park thanks to an all-new interactive dining experience! The new dining adventure was created to celebrate the classic Disney story of The Lion King -- just in time for the film’s 25th anniversary this year. Circle of Flavors: Harambe at Night will be a family-friendly dining experience taking guests on a journey throughout this beautiful and unique theme park.

The evening starts with a welcome reception at the Wildlife Express Train Station. The welcome reception will include light snacks and hors d’oeuvres along with alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverage options. The light fare will be accompanied by peaceful acoustic music before hopping aboard the train that will take guests to Rafiki’s Planet Watch.

Once you arrive at the train station of Rafiki’s Planet Watch, expect to see a few familiar faces ready to greet you! Timon and Rafiki are ready for hugs and other memorable moments. After your time is done at Rafiki’s Planet Watch, hop back on the train to make your way toward Harambe Market for additional food offerings. The Harambe marketplace will offer an array of sweet and savory dishes that will perfectly pair with the event’s unique and exciting beverage options.

Throughout the night, guests will take in the views, vibes, and flavors in celebration of Disney’s The Lion King and the “Big Five” game animals of the film. The Big Five include the African Elephant, the Cape Buffalo, the Leopard, our host animal the Lion, and the Rhinoceros. Through this entertaining and educational experience, guests will get to learn more about the importance of the Big Five and how Disney is working to protect these species from their challenges they face around the world.
