Harambe Village in Animal Kingdom

I won't lie, Animal Kingdom isn't a park that's high on my list, but on our last trip I really fell in love with parts of it and appreciated the theme and aesthetics of it more than I ever have done previously. 

 Harambe Village, in Animal Kingdom, to me is perfect. With every twist and turn of the park it holds so much thought for the real Harambe. 
With Tuskers breakfast, the safari and Lion King all around this area, it's also great for attractions and dining. It's also full of fun, colour and so welcoming with African food and dancing.

With the (not so) new night time safari at Animal Kingdom, Africa is a great place to visit at golden hour. The walls look beautiful with the art work and graphics, you can grab the nicest authentic food at Harambe Market before heading to see the animals in the darker and cooler weather.

I love how swept away we get from being here, actually transporting us to Africa. One of the reasons I adore Disney is the theming they have and stories behind it all, this part of Animal Kingdom certainly has that.

 Harambe Village is also home to some wonderful Disney walls, including the Mickey "Fichwa Fellow" which basically means hidden Mickey.
"You may think of this as a greeting from Mickey, considering he is waving, but in Swahili, "fichwa" means "hidden", and now the whole meaning becomes clear! It's a "Hidden Mickey" hiding in plain sight! Stop by Harambe Marketplace in Disney's Animal Kingdom to see this "Fellow" for yourself"


As well as all this, The Festival of The Lion King is based in Africa. The truly amazing show, that's arguably the best at Walt Disney World. The talent is amazing and will get you singing along in the amazing theater show. Also perfect if it's raining or even to cool down from the Florida heat, with the 30 minute show treating you to a variety of colour and celebration.
