Disney's Animal Kingdom News Round-Up for May 20, 2015: Pathways, Markets and Turtles

Harambe Market Opens May 23: The Disney Parks Blog dropped some very exciting this finally telling us when the Harambe Market will open and the good news is the opening is schedule for Saturday of this week! OrlandoParkNews.com also reported earlier in the week that cast member previews of the new Harambe Market are schedule to take place this week. These are usually the "final dress rehearsals" for a new area, so we kind of thought this news might be imminent.

The Parks Blog also gave us a lot more information on the food offerings,  even including a recipe for the chickpea salad which will be part of the Karubi Ribs entree, and more photos. There is also a "behind the scenes" video.

New Pathway in Asia Opens: Earlier this week a new pathway opened in the Asia section of Disney's Animal Kingdom. It leads from the entrance of Kali River Rapids around the back of the siamang exhibit and ends up on the path leading to Expedition Everest.


This new pathway was obviously built here in anticipation of some dealt bottleneck situations in this area before and during the upcoming Rivers of Light show. Also, we now know why they changed the entrance for Kali River Rapids.

Tomorrow is World Turtle Day: Both the Animal Kingdom and Epcot will be hosting some events in honor of World Turtle Day tomorrow. Like all of these events, most of the activities are intended for kinds and will take place at Rafiki's Planet Watch.
