The Hakuna Matata Restaurant (in French, Restaurant Hakuna Matata) is a restaurant inspired by The Lion King. It is located in the Adventureland area in Disneyland Paris.

Information

Originally, when Disneyland Paris opened in 1992, the restaurant was known as Les Epices Enchantées (The Enchanted Spices). As the main building of the African area of Adventureland, it features many African artifacts in the setting of a peaceful jungle.

With the release of The Lion King in 1994, the perfect theme came through to link the restaurant to the Disney universe. Therefore, it was renamed Hakuna Matata Restaurant around 1995. The building itself remains unaltered, except for murals of Timon and Pumbaa, which were added later.
