The Harambe Market is Animal Kingdom’s version of a “food court”. The all-outdoor market has been designed to appear like a small seaside village... complete with a half-covered seating area and four different “shops” which are walk-up order and food pickup windows. (Just between us, I’m not sure how “seaside” works into all of this, since no seafood dishes are available anywhere in the market.) A faux water tower and what would be a train depot adorn the north west end part of the area. While the Harambe Village Train does in fact pass by here, there is never any intention for it to stop at the depot, which is just for show.
Four ordering windows (or shops) make up the Harambe Market... the Kitamu Grill (which offers grilled food on skewers), Famous Sausages (a curried corn dog), Chef Mwanga’s (spice rubbed Karubi ribs), and Wanjohi Refreshments (which only offers drinks).
This multi-window food selection, payment, and pickup system introduces a problem which is not unique to this particular food court... and that is the simple fact that if everyone in your party wants something different, everyone is going to have to split up and get into different lines, with their own money or payment system, and hopefully all meet up together in the common area (which almost never happens at the the same time).
While each of the windows offers different main dishes... all windows seem to have soda, water and basic beverages, along with “adult” beverages such as beer and wine, (although not every wine and beer variety is available at every window).
Also available at every window is “the” dessert at Harambe Market, which is the African Milk Tart. A coconut custard filled pastry shell topped with a bit of sugar, spices, drizzled with a dark chocolate ganache.
(*) Price ranges listed are the average cost for one main entree and one soft beverage item, unless otherwise stated. There are many combinations of appetizers, deserts and drinks that will add to your final total. Many parks also use seasonal pricing systems which result in food and beverage costs increasing at peak times.
