First of all, we have to admit that the pathways leading to the area are not as large as we thought. This could be seen as a negative aspect of this expansion, but it actually helps in keeping Animal Kingdom from becoming a "concrete jungle." These quaint pathways surrounded by trees contribute to its beauty:
A small section of the market is still behind walls:
The rest of the area seems to have been here since the opening of the park. It's very well done:
A look at some of the particulars seen around the outer section of the Harambe Market:
Time to enter inside the heart of the Harambe Market:
The market is divided into separate areas where Guests can line up to order food and then pick it up in a separate window. This helps to keep lines reasonably short and serve Guests more efficiently:
The Wildlife Express Train can usually be spotted behind these props:
A look back:
We could not help it but laugh when reading this:
This expansion is beautiful. So life like. DisneySea-Quality here (as were most of Florida's recent additions). I was not expecting this but rather something more like Sunset Ranch at DHS. Job well done.
It would have been nice to get another attraction. I couldn't imagine what Imagineering could come up with if they expanded the Harambe storyline into an original attraction.
For the time being I don't mind the restaurant but I hope we will soon get something more.
Next on the checklist: Re-Imagine Dino-Land.
Completely agree that Dino-Land needs a complete makeover, especially the carnival game area.
I also wonder if they'll ever build a large E-Ticket attraction in the area they used as a staging area when they build Expedition Everest. If you look at a satellite view on Google Maps, you can see the big area. It may require reconfiguring the train, but it could hold a HUGE attraction within the park boundry.
