Harambe Nights, a new special event that celebrates the story of “The Lion King,” made its debut at Disney’s Animal Kingdom earlier this month. This amazing celebration “stretches Disney entertainment and dining to new heights.”
Harambe Nights features a 55-minute theatrical extravaganza called “The Lion King Concert in the Wild,” which includes a celebrity narrator, a live orchestra and choir, and special effects that together present the story of Simba like never before. The event also offers a welcome reception and a post-show street party, complete with musicians and a buffet of culinary creations to keep the party going through the evening.
Harambe Nights continues every Saturday evening from 7 p.m. – 10:30 p.m. through August 9, 2014. Each nights, a celebrity narrator joins the villagers of Harambe for their performance of “The Lion King- Concert in the Wild.” The following celebrity narrators from film, TV, and Broadway are scheduled to appear include:
