    Harambe Nights opens at Disney's Animal Kingdom on the 7th June and presents the sights, sounds and flavors of Africa during a dazzling new theatrical production and energetic street party celebrating the 20th anniversary of “The Lion King” classic film.

    Each Saturday from the 7th June through to the 9th August during this special-ticket, after-hours event, Harambe Nights treats guests to a magical evening. Venturing to the Africa section of the park, guests start the evening with a welcome reception featuring refreshing sips and savory bites of African-inspired appetizers. As they head to the Harambe Theatre, guests receive a special package of chef-created “Lion Chow” perfect for the 55-minute theatrical extravaganza, “The Lion King Concert in the Wild.” This original show comprises celebrity narrators, a live orchestra, choir and special effects to present the moving story of Simba’s coming of age like never before.

    After the show, guests head back into Harambe Village for a lively street party rocking with Afro-pop rhythms, street performers and an abundant selection of buffet stations with perfectly seasoned dishes for pairing with beers, wines and specialty beverages, all included in the event admission. When the stars come out, an array of desserts adds a sweet touch to the fun.

    It would be great if they did, I guess it depends in how popular it is.

    Having never been in AK after park closing this might be fun to do if it would be happening in October.
