    Construction has begun at Animal Kingdom on an expansion to the Africa area which is due to open in early 2015 and will be called Harambe Marketplace.

    The new expansion will double the size of the existing Africa and will include a quick service restaurant that will serve African inspired dishes and also new merchandise locations. It sounds like Disney have listened to Guests and there will be shaded areas amongst the new buildings.

    Sounds good always thought an African inspired area should be added an idea for DOWNTOWN DISNEY and Epcot

    I know some don't, but I really do enjoy Animal Kingdom. I'm looking forward to this new spot!

    We were wondering where it was going as there doesn't seem to be enough space left from the plans/drawings I've seen.
    Looking forward to it though.

    I think more of the evening events will make it more popular
