New Entertainment At Disney’s Animal Kingdom

By  |  0 Comments

Beginning this weekend, Disney’s Animal Kingdom is opening an array of evening entertainment! If you follow me on Social Media, you’ll know that I’ve been talking a lot about “The Jungle Book: Alive With Magic” and the new Tree of Life Projections. It’s all starting this Memorial Day weekend!

Here’s a closer look at a few of the new offerings available as day transitions into night at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Personally, I am very excited about Discovery Island Carnivale! During Discovery Island Carnivale, a vivacious group of musicians and performers host a festive celebration of nature, spreading from one end of the island to the other with lively music and dance, vibrant costumes, delectable food and drinks, and more. This exuberant gathering begins as a procession leading to the Discovery Island stage and continues well after dark with a party featuring the Viba Gaia band and a spirited group of islanders.

Throughout the evening, the Discovery Island Sunset Serenatas, another of the island’s musicians, electrifies with a virtuoso performance on the Paraguayan harp.

The Tree of Life draws you to the heart of Discovery Island. You can watch in wonder as animal spirits within the tree come alive in mesmerizing color and light.

The village of Harambe in Africa is a popular destination throughout the day. At night it becomes a true hot spot with sunset on Kilimanjaro Safaris and the evening Harambe Wildlife Parti, a time for wild animals to roam the open savanna and for party animals to take to the streets!

When the sun sets, the popular Village of Harambe at Disney's Animal Kingdom will become a hot spot with the new Harambe Wildlife Parti. Here, “party animals” can dance alongside a variety of entertainers and local street musicians, and enjoy the lively rhythms of African music. Guests can also partake in exotic foods and libations, and explore the diverse wares of village artisans and merchants in the vibrant marketplace. (David Roark, photographer)

This safari after-party fills Harambe with the sights and sounds of outstanding local street musicians and entertainers, inviting you to join them in dance and song, partake in exotic foods and libations and explore the diverse wares of village artisans and merchants.

Beginning in late afternoon, the popular Burudika Band takes the stage in Harambe’s Old Square as hosts of the Wildlife Parti, performing original songs and Afro pop hits from across Africa. As you explore the town, street musicians and performers seem to be around every corner!

With music, dance and an ever-changing landscape of things to see and do, the Harambe Wildlife Parti offers the excitement of an African village filled with non-stop, wildly fun surprises and delights!

I can’t wait to see it! If you make it there before I do, I want to hear all about it! So, if you don’t follow me on Social Media please come join the party and follow me on Twitter , Facebook , Instagram and YouTube . See ya around the web Disney friends!
