More thatched roofing has been added to what is thought to be new covered seating in the Africa section of Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
This potential new seating area is located near Tamu Tamu Refreshments, Harambe Market, and Zuri’s Sweets Shop.
Tamu Tamu Refreshments
Over behind Tamu Tamu Refreshments, this section of seating has new thatching on the sides of its roof, similar to our most recent update for the seating by Harambe Market.
While it seems this seating section still has decking or paneling on the main portions of the roof, the sides have received their thatching.
This thatching is the same as that on the sides of the other seating area’s roof.
Over by Harambe Market, more thatching has been added since our last update, and now covers the entire roof.
Previously, only the sides had been covered.
The dormer roofs are now also covered, though some plastic material is still present.
It also appears that the short poles sticking out from the dormer roofs have gotten a darker coat of paint.
Both dormer roofs and the flat sections facing the sidewalk are now totally covered in thatching.
It appears that thatch-style edging has also been applied along the front roof section.
These wooden rods sticking out from the front of the roof are still not all painted. In our last update, we saw that some had been painted brown, while others were white.
Disney’s Animal Kingdom is widely known as the hottest theme park at Walt Disney World Resort, so the covered seating area will be a welcome reprieve for guests.
Harambe is the fictional village in the Africa section of Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Here, guests can dine at Harambe Market, Tamu Tamu Refreshments, Zuri’s Sweet Shop, Dawa Bar, Tusker House Restaurant, Kusafiri Coffee Shop & Bakery, and the Harambe Fruit Market. In February, a new outdoor bar opened in Harambe Market in front of the building that used to serve ribs.
The Harambe Village Acrobats, Kora Tinga Tinga, and Tam Tam Drummers perform daily in Harambe.
Mombasa Marketplace offers authentic African imports like wine, apparel, art, crafts, instruments, and animal toys. Next door, Ziwandi Traders has more traditional Walt Disney World merchandise.
The land’s attractions are “Festival of the Lion King” and Kilimanjaro Safaris.
