Disney has just announced a new dining adventure that will honor endangered African animals along with celebrating the story of The Lion King.

The evening will begin with a welcome reception at the Wildlife Express Train Station that includes light hors d’oeuvres, snacks, and beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) while guests can enjoy acoustic music before riding the train over to Rafiki’s Planet Watch. You’ll find more light bites and drinks to take part in there before you get back on the train and head to Harambe Market for the main event. Throughout the marketplace, you’ll enjoy an array of sweet and savory dishes paired with unique beverages.
