Magical Moments Launch: Adventureland Rhythms of the Jungle adds characters to tam-tams

Adventureland Rhythms of the Jungle

A staple of the park since the very beginning, Adventureland’s African Tam Tam music group just made some new friends — an orangutan, a bear, sometimes even a meerkat. This is Adventureland Rhythms of the Jungle, the new “moment” during the Disney Magical Moments Festival bringing life to a quiet corner of the land between Restaurant Hakuna Matata and Adventureland Bazaar.

The live music set has been turned into an extended character meet ‘n’ greet opportunity, with some fun play-along moments for children on the drums.

The African Tam Tams have previously performed in front of the restaurant, but are now shifted around to the outside terrace on the left. Underneath a newly-added African thatched canopy, matching those around the nearby Café de la Brousse, colourful wooden signage and two permanent characters set the scene…

Static figures of Kaa from The Jungle Book and Zazu from The Lion King have been well integrated into the landscape. It’s unusual to see characters from two worlds collide like this in the parks, especially when their stories take place on two different continents.

Rhythms of the Jungle is on the programme for 11:15 – 13:30 and 15:15 – 17:30. Will the added characters and interaction make you more likely to stop off and enjoy the Tam Tams in the African area of Adventureland?

  • We look out for these every year. They are fab. Glad they have more involvement now.

  • Is there a queue to meet the characters or is it the usual free for all?

  • Thanks for the news and photos. I have always liked watching the Tam Tams, and my two boys liked playing on them in Animal Kingdom park in WDW.
    I think it is a lovely idea to have Characters from Jungle Book and Lion King included, as this is more like the old days when we saw Characters around the park all day, but like Graham, I am wondering if this is going to be properly organised by CM’s or end up a pushing shoving fight like some Character Meet and Greets.

  • It also just looks swell having the characters in the land or area they fit in, I’m not a fan of characters on mainstreet, especially not ones who feel out of place like Lion King or Jungle Book characters.

  • good new environment for them to play in.
