Harambe Market 2Harambe Market is the great new dining establishment at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in the Africa section of the park, featuring lots of great items, such as ribs, chicken skewers, sausage corn dogs, beverages, and more. Well, now, there will be one more stop for guests. Zuri’s Sweets Shop will open on June 17, and it will be a unique shopping destination!

This new shop is an extension of Mombassa Marketplace and is a traditional candy counter with an African twist. It will features 80 exclusive food items inspired by the tastes of Africa. Guests will be able to purchase things like trail mixes, bottles of signature sweet and spicy BBQ sauces from Flame Tree Barbeque, themed sweets featuring The Lion King charactersand more!

In addition to sweets, guests will be able to pick up other unique merchandise such as decorative “Blessing Baskets,” which are handcrafted baskets created by artisans from Africa.

This shop rounds out the opening of Harambe Market and it sounds like the perfect stop for those looking to take home a little of Africa with them.

    This sounds fantastic! I’m glad it isn’t just going to be a counter where you can buy a couple of cupcakes. (Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE DISNEY CUPCAKES!) Instead it seems like it is going to have a variety of other interesting items. I’m looking forward to checking it out in July!

    I feel weird for asking but is it named for Zuri on the show Jesse? I am assuming so since she was adopted from Africa but isn’t mentioned anywhere.
