PHOTOS: Construction Walls Erected, Exterior Painting Begins on Club 33’s Harambe House at Disney’s Animal Kingdom
As we headed into Disney’s animal kingdom today, we stopped by the Harambe House construction site to see what was going on. While Club 33 locations in other Walt Disney World parks have used existing structures, the Harambe House is being built exclusively for Club 33 of Animal Kingdom.
One of the biggest changes was the addition of building walls to block the view of guests on their journey from Harambe Village to Pandora: The World of Avatar. The addition of the building walls could result in more detailed work on the inside and outside of the building.
The scaffolding is still in operation while work on the outside of the building continues, but it is clear that the Harambe House is gradually starting to reflect the themes of the rest of the Harambe Village. The smooth stucco finish is beginning to blend in with the worn look of the buildings surrounding it.
Work has also begun on the thatched roof on the pyramid-shaped part of the building, which will blend in with the existing sight lines of the village of Harambe. Several workers were present throughout the morning.
More recent work also shows colors that began in the back half of the building. You can see where the cream color meets the darker gray concrete.
The Harambe House is due to open at the end of the year. Have a look at us! We’ll keep you updated on any progress in construction!
