PHOTOS: Club 33’s Harambe House Location Now Open at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

The construction walls are down, and it’s time to say Jambo! to Harambe House at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

The new Club 33 lounge at the park has met its goal of opening by the end of 2019. Nearly two weeks ago, the finishing touches were being put on the building.

As we previously mentioned, the Swahili phrase “Thelathini na tatu” appears under the building name in the signage. “Thelathini na tatu” is Swahili for thirty-three, a reference to the club that inspired Harambe House.

 

Like Club 33, Harambe House is a private location for club members, which could explain the gates as seen in the above picture.

 

 

With the construction walls now down, we can peer in through the glass windows and see some of the incredible artwork inside.

While it’s hard to make out, it looks there might be some tribal artwork on the wall.

This gated ramp will allow club members to access Harambe house.

All in all, it looks like a very organic addition to the Africa section of Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Photos aren’t allowed in any Club 33 locations in the U.S.

Not true. They are allowed in the Courtyard of Angels and of your dining group/table only as long as you don’t not show other members.

You said no pictures allowed in Club 33. CoA is in Club 33. And if I recall correctly there are plenty of dining tables in interior parts of Club 33. You’re really grasping Tom.

The court of angels is an outdoor venue, as is the patio of the Magic Kingdom’s Club 33. Both are outdoors, while being Club-exclusive, they aren’t interiors and photos are allowed only in those sots. I’m just quoting the rules, I don’t know what you want from me.

Having dined at Club 33 just last week, I can tell you photos are allowed, inside and out. You are not allowed to take photos inside the restrooms, or of other guests if you are not acquainted with them.

I’m sorry, you’re not allowed to post them on any social media or anywhere on the internet is what I meant, only the photos from those exterior areas.

I’m sorry, but that is incorrect as well. There is no policy regarding posting pics taken inside Club 33, only the policy regarding taking pics of other guests without their permission, specifically celebrities, or inside the restrooms. I have actually asked about that on prior visits, thus I have posted pics, as have many others.

I have the official policies in front of me now, I just read them over multiple times to confirm. Nothing is said in writing about social media limitations. Sorry… “lol”.

Try Facebook (as a start). You’ll find plenty of pics posted there.

In September you published the picture inside Epcot’s location because you are not a member and not subject to their rules (you specifically stated this in the comments) so your argument about not being allowed is flawed since you already stated you don’t believe this rule applies to you.

The picture was taken by a long-time Disney animator I believe and posted to social media, so it seemed safe to share it. What normal guests are allowed to do and what high-ranking employees are happen to be two different things.

Pictures are allowed inside all WDW Club 33 locations. Photos cannot include people outside your party or be posted to social media / the internet. I think they would try to lynch you if you tried to get in after that hilarious club 33 thanksgiving bit.

Myself or my different sets of friends who I attend with have not been contacted, and I have been pretty recently, so I would assume the hissy fit thrown by members over a bit with a billionaire who says he’s been to the moon on an internet show is not something anyone is taking seriously except bored members.

Looks more like a White Castle Hamburger location than an “exclusive” club.

To the Club 33 members voting down my comments, you do understand that I own the site and that will have zero consequences for me, right?

OK, so to clarify some confusion: I thought that California and Florida had the same photo policies, but they do not. Regardless, photos inside the Florida clubs can not be posted one the internet, social media, etc. which is what I meant. I was wrong in that the California Club 33 does not have these rules.
