The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are incredibly popular with kids of all ages and we are thrilled that they are taking over the Nick Hotel for our Summer of Shell’,said Tony Aslanian, director of sales and marketing for Nickelodeon Suites Resort. “We can’t wait to unveil everything from our new poolside and Studio Nick shows to our TMNT-themed suites. Our guests are going to be yelling booyakasha’ the moment they arrive.”

The Summer of Shell is full of great new experiences, so let’s look at the new things that you can expect to see!

The Nick Hotel debuted ten newly designed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle themed guest suites sure to make any TMNT fan happy!

You can also grab a bite to eat with turtles at a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles themed dinner show where you can dine with your favorite heroes and footsoldiers. Antonio’s Pizza-Rama Dinner is available at an extra cost, but it looked like a lot of fun!

New Harambe Theatre

Harambe Theatre

The new Harambe Theatre is open at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and the theatre and the area around it are a beautiful new addition to the park!

Harambe Theatre

Harambe Theatre, which is home to the newly reopened Festival of the Lion King Show, looks identical to it’s former layout, but boasts some improvements for this incredibly popular show.

While you cannot notice them, the major changes backstage are what makes this new Harambe Theatre so great. Now attached to the venue are rehearsal spaces and enhanced backstage areas which make the show run better from a back-of-house perspective.

Harambe Theatre

You can find the new Harambe Theatre just over the bridge in Africa and to your left at the newly renovated Dawa Bar outside of the Tusker House Restaurant.

‘The Prime location of the new Harambe Theatre brings a new energy to the show and as well as the area around the area,’ says Reed Jones with Walt Disney Entertainment.

Theming is the name of the game in this new section of Harambe!

There are signs at the Dawa Bar that let you know that you have arrived at the Harambe Theatre.

Along the walls of this area are advertisements for local businesses and entertainment in Harambe.

My favorite spot in this new area, is the Festival of the Lion King marque which has a metal ‘quilt’ featuring a certain Lion we all love and some fun advertisements.

Once inside the queue for the Festival of the Lion King, you can find the wares of local craftsmen as you walk to your seats.

Also, located just before the Harambe Theatre is a new retail location where you can buy some of the new Festival of the Lion King merchandise.

New restrooms have also been built that have one of my other favorite pieces of theming!

Stroller Parking outside of the Harambe Theatre is much better than what it was at the former location in Camp Minnie Mickey!

There are plenty of spaces for strollers that are located near the exit of the Theatre, so there is less confusion and people crossing paths.

While I absolutely love this new area, I can only hope that they turn back on the geysers on Discovery River! I think it would bring a really fun kinetic to the waterway.

The new Harambe Theatre is also home to Harambe Nights this summer!

What do you think of the new Harambe Theatre and its area at Animal Kingdom?
